London Subway is Rocked as Terrorist with Knife Attacks While Shouting ‘This is For Syria’

At the Leytonstone Subway Station yesterday, a terrorist went on a rampage with a knife and slit a bystander’s throat, while yelling “This is for Syria!” The victim will live and this is definitely being viewed as terrorism. The man has still not been identified, but has been taken into custody. One victim is in critical condition and another is wounded. The attacker was tasered by police to take him down. He dropped the knife after hitting the ground and being tasered a second time. He may have been tasered up to six times. I wonder if he was on Captagon? A defiant bystander is then heard yelling out ‘You ain’t no Muslim bruv.’ Well, he’s certainly a radical Islamic terrorist. That’s for sure.


From IJReview:

On Saturday, a normal day at the Leytonstone Subway Station quickly turned into a nightmare.

A man armed with a machete shouted ‘this is for Syria’ and then slashed a bystander’s throat.

The Independent has more details:

At least one man was seriously injured with a slashed throat after tube users at Leytonstone in east London were threatened with a large knife and attacked as they left the station.

The Met Police have said they are treating the attack as a ‘terrorist incident’.


Fortunately, the man, who remains unidentified at this time, was taken into police custody:


According to the Telegraph, one victim is in serious condition and two others have sustained injuries as well.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated as more information becomes available.

The attacker was 29 years-old. We still don’t have a name, but if they know how old he is, they surely know who he is. And as I have said multiple times, they don’t need guns to kill. Knives work and so do explosives as seen here. Scotland Yard has now confirmed anti-terror police are investigating after eyewitnesses claimed they could hear the man shout ‘this is for Syria’ and ‘all of your blood will be spilled’ during the frightening ordeal. The event exploded on Twitter soon after it happened. The standoff occurred around 7 pm last night and left one man, aged 56, with serious wounds, while one other suffered minor injuries. Terrified children and their parents ran for cover as the primary victim was left on the floor of the ticket hall lying in a large pool of blood. After reportedly slashing his victim’s throat, the man allegedly threatened several other passengers before being confronted by the unarmed police officers. When he was ordered to drop the knife, he instead lunged at the police officers. No charges have been filed yet. According to an eyewitness, the victim, seen carrying a guitar, was stabbed after being punched unconscious and repeatedly kicked in the frenzied attack. A witness said, “The attacker was Somalian or Sudanese and talking in an Arabian accent. He was a strong man. He was punching like a boxer. He was a very powerful strong man. He was angry for some reason.” The stabbing was the first Jihadist attack in London since the murder of soldier Lee Rigby in May of 2013. It certainly won’t be the last.
