Are The Paris Shootings Retaliation For US Drones Killing Jihadi John?

Late Friday night in Paris as the French team was hosting Germany at the Stade de France, gunfire broke out at a nearby restaurant and bar. People had gathered to shake off the stress of the week and enjoy themselves, as gunmen got out of a car and opened fire. Reports stated that 10 or more bodies lay motionless on the sidewalk as sirens from nearby police and ambulance wailed through the streets. It may be too early to tell, but these Paris shootings may have been triggered by reports that the US killed the terrorist known as Jihadi John.

Moments later shots were fired from a moving car, with witnesses stating that the gun looked to be a Kalashnikov rifle (commonly used in Africa and the Middle East). Then a set of explosions went off near the Stadium, which was not only full of spectators, but also the president of France.

Some reports have circulated online that there were only a dozen people killed in the shootings, while others have stated 2 to 3 times that many. It really may be too soon to tell.

The attacks are strangely reminiscent of the Charlie Hebdoe shootings that shook the moral foundations of Parisians earlier this year. This begs some to wonder if the shootings were instigated by ISIS sympathizers or embedded Islamic State fighters.

Just last night the United States military conducted drone strikes, which they announced today were very likely to have killed the beheading terrorist known best as Jihadi John. More than likely, he was the key target of last night’s drone strikes, which could be a tough blow to the young radical organization.

Jihadi John has been the poster child of ISIS for a couple years, and has appeared in many of their hostage and beheading videos. While Jihadi John is most likely the UK-born citizen Mohammed Emwazi, the young 20-something had motivated many other foreign sympathizers to join the ranks of the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.

Tonight’s attacks in Paris may have been held as a retaliation for the news of Jihadi John’s reported death. Even though his actual death has not been confirmed, the US military seems all but certain that they finally nabbed the man responsible for so many gruesome public killings.

The US reported that Jihadi John was likely killed on November 12, 2015 in a series of drone strikes coordinated outside of Raqqa, Syria.

Police in Paris are still working out the details of the explosions and shootings, and currently working on handling a reported hostage situation. It has been reported that roughly 100 hostages have been taken at a night club. It is most likely that the shootings, explosions, and hostage crisis are all related to the same small band of criminals that tore a rift through the streets of Paris tonight, though evidence is still not 100% conclusive.
