Iraq, Syria, Belgium, France, Canada, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Libya, Lebanon, US, Turkey, Bangladesh. We’ve joined the exclusive club of countries attacked by ISIS. Hooray?

According to The Star, police have confirmed that the grenade attack on Movida in Puchong last week—which left eight people injured—was indeed the work of ISIS, despite initial denials.

Cops say the attack was carried out under instruction from Malaysian Muhamad Wanndy Mohamad Jedi, a jihadist who left the country for Syria early last year. Wanddy was alleged to have been involved in filming an ISIS beheading just a month later.

Cops have arrested 15 people so far, including the two men who actually threw the grenade. Scarily, because of their access to an assortment of weaponry, another two of the 15 arrested are policemen.

Immediately after the attack, another Syria-based Malaysian IS-hole Abu Hamzah al-Fateh claimed that the movement was behind the attack, and was because the bar disrespecting Ramadhan by staying open. 

But the owner of the bar initially dismissed the claim, and said that a couple who were celebrating their wedding anniversary were the real targets—mostly because of some eyewitness accounts of the presumed ethnicity of the perpetrators.

In another unrelated attack, it was reported that one of the suspects of Bangladesh militant group responsible for the attack on an upscale cafe in Bangladesh’s capital that resulted in 22 deaths had previously studied Malaysia. He is suspected to have attended in Monash University, an Australian university with a campus here. Police has contacted Monash for more information.

Jon Snow was right on last week. Winter is here.
