MANCHESTER was hit with yet another Islamic Terror Attack to end 2018, right next to the location of the 2017 Suicide Bombing that killed 22 including young children.
The attacker stabbed multiple party goers out to celebrate New Year’s Eve and a British Transport Police officer at a Metrolink stop at Manchester’s Victoria station. Police say the location – just yards away from Manchester Arena was a factor in the attack.
Greater Manchester Police are treating the incident as Terrorism after a female victim in her 50s was stabbed in the face and left with a “significant injury” to her forehead while her partner suffered multiple stab wounds to the stomach, Police said.
A brave BTP officer, in his 30s was stabbed in the shoulder and hospitalised before being released early this morning.
The 25-year-old alleged Radical Islamist shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ and added: “Long Live The Caliphate.” but the MSM is blaming Mental Health.

Sky, ITV and the BBC all questioned the attacker’s mental health in reports on New Years Day, despite the attacker openly voicing support for ISIS.
The attacker’s hideout in the Cheetham Hill area on the outskirts of Manchester City Centre was raided this morning.
Greater Manchester Police’s Assistant Chief Constable Russ Jackson said the incident was a “frenzied attack”.
He added: “We are treating this as a terrorism investigation. This investigation is being led by counter-terrorism officers”.
GMP Chief Constable, Ian Hopkins, said: “This was an horrific attack in people simply out to enjoy the New Years Eve celebrations in Manchester.”
“I know the events of last night will have affected many people and caused concern particularly as this happened so close to the scene of the terrorist attack on 22nd May 2017. This makes it an especially dreadful attack for our city.”
