Popular beach hotel in Tunisia attacked by terrorists, at least 27 tourists killed

This terrorist attack is still underway in Tunisia. At least 27 tourists have been killed and many others are running for their lives in Hotel Riu Imperial Marhaba, a 5-star beach front hotel in Sousse town in Tunisia as gunmen suspected to be Islamic militias stormed the hotel and opened fire.

Foreign tourists who were relaxing on the El Mouradi Palm Marina near the hotel were first targeted and killed before gunmen stormed the nearby hotel which is in a quiet remote beach.

Police in Tunisia is currently engaging the gunmen in a fierce gun battle. Just one gunman has so far been killed. Many bodies are said to be lying on the beach. Most of the people killed are believed to be foreigners as the hotel is said to be popular amongst European holiday makers.

This morning's attack follows a similar attack in March, where three terrorists attacked the Bardo National Museum in the Tunisian capital city of Tunis, and took hostages. Twenty-one people, mostly European tourists, were killed at the scene while an additional victim died ten days later.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, the deadliest involving foreigners in Tunisia since a 2002 suicide bombing on the island of Djerba.

Tunisia Interior minister said this attack (still ongoing) was not just to kill people but to destroy the economy of the country. Some photos from the scene below... and it's happening at 2 separate hotels.

If not for the fact that Allah supercedes Islam, I would rightly have called it quit already. How many more innocent blood must be shed to drive home whatever grievances they nuture with the world with the guise of Islam. Imagine on an holy day like jummat grenoble, Kuwait and now Tunisia. Allah is all peaceful and loving. Where did these evil element got their teaches from? It's so sad being a muslim right now.
