‘ISIS is coming’: Shia man shot by IS supporters in Australia — RT News

‘ISIS is coming’: Shia man shot by IS supporters in Australia — RT News – A Shia man was shot by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) supporters as he was leaving an Islamic prayer center in southwest Sydney, according to eyewitnesses. The 47-year-old victim, identified as an Iraqi Shia leader at the center, suffered superficial pellet wounds to the face and shoulders, and is currently awaiting surgery in a Sydney hospital. A witness, who did not give his name, alleged that before the shooting, the attackers drove by hurling insults at Shias gathered near the center. “They called us ‘Shia dogs’ and they threatened to come back down tonight and kill you, shoot you, whatever,” the witness told ABC Radio. Prior to the shooting, the attackers drove by several times shouting “IS lives forever,” according to the witness. Others confirmed they heard a group of men yell: “ISIS is coming” and “ISIS will stay.” The Islamic State, which is waging a bloody insurgency in Iraq and Syria, has announced the creation of a caliphate in the region. The Sunni IS fighters consider all other religions heretical, including other branches of Islam and have imposed a restrictive version of Sharia law on the seized territories, beheading, crucifying and stoning those who are non-compliant.
