The latest attack, or battle if you prefer, occurred in France, on its national holiday, Bastille Day.
France is where Charles Martel, "the Hammer," defeated an invading Muslim army at the Battle of Tours in 732, likely blocking the Islamization of Europe. It endured two major terrorist attacks last year, one at the Charlie Hebdo offices and a series of assaults in November.
From the Daily Mail:
At least 60 people are dead with more than 100 injured after a truck mounted a pavement and shots were fired in Nice during Bastille Day celebrations in a suspected terrorist attack.Pray for the victims.
There are unconfirmed reports that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.
The truck mounted the pavement at approximately 40mph and steered directly towards people watching a fireworks display in the city.
One witness called Antoine said: 'We were at the Neptune beach and a firework display had just finished. That is when we saw a white lorry. It was going quickly at 60-70 kilometres an hour.'
