The truck that jumped a curb and rammed into a bustling Christmas market in the heart of the German capital Monday, killing 12 and injuring scores in an apparent attack, followed a call earlier this year from a top ISIS leader inciting sympathizers across Western Europe to attack citizens with homemade or readily available weapons like knives, vehicles, guns, and even homemade explosives, a call that seemingly influenced a series of lone attackers, including the similar Nice truck attack in July that killed 86.ISIS claimed responsibility for Monday’s carnage and announced the attacker was a “soldier of the Islamic State,” according to the SITE Intel Group, which monitors insurgent networks. However, the identity and motivation of the attacker remain unknown 24 hours after the tragedy. German authorities released a suspect on Tuesday after a lack of evidence connecting him to the crime amid a nationwide manhunt.
