President Donald Trump tweeted a message of solidarity with French President Emmanuel Macron and the people of France in light of the ISIS terror attack that shook two towns Friday.
ISIS gunman Redouane Lakdim, 26, hijacked a car then opened fire in a Super U supermarket killing three and injuring at least 16 before he was shot dead by French police.
‘Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the horrible attack in France yesterday, and we grieve the nation’s loss,’ Trump said.
‘We also condemn the violent actions of the attacker and anyone who would provide him support. We are with you @EmmanuelMacron!’ he added.
The horrific attack at the hands of the Moroccan gunman saw Lakdim hijack a car in the town of Carcassonne shooting a passenger in the vehicle dead and wounding the driver.
Later he opened fire on four police men jogging near the edge of town, wounding one.
He then headed to Super U supermarket in Trebes where about 50 people were shopping and where he took hostages.
He screamed ‘Allahu Akbar, I’ll kill you all’ before killing a butcher and shopper in the grocery store.
French police officer Arnaud Beltrame offered to swap places with a hostage, and the gunman took him instead.
The hero cop was harmed in the attack and died later due to his wounds.
A total of 16 people were wounded in the attack and two were seriously hurt.
In his reign of terror Lakdim demanded the release of Salah Abdeslam, 28, the last surviving suspect in the 2015 ISIS attack in Paris that left 130 dead.
After a stand-off police, Lakdim was finally shot down.
