For attacks in the West, it has suggested a simpler method, encouraging followers to use regular vehicles to kill people on foot.Experts say attacks in which cars or trucks are driven into popular pedestrian areas present a unique challenge for law enforcement officials as they are nearly impossible to predict and easy to pull off. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, saying he was a "soldier" that answered its call to attack nations in the coalition fighting ISIS in Syria and Iraq.Since 2014, this simple but effective attack has been promoted in ISIS propaganda online.Vehicle attacks, like knife attacks, are aggressively promoted by IS and its online supporters.ISIS claimed the attack, which left 11 people wounded.The ISIS leadership began urging attacks on the West after the U.S-led coalition launched airstrikes on the group.
