A chilling video from the police terror raid in Paris on Nov. 18 has been released. The shocking clip shows the moment female suicide bomber, Hasna Ait Boulahcen, detonated her explosive and killed herself in a Saint-Denis apartment building. Watch it here.
This is terrifying. Hasna Ait Boulahcen, a suicide bomber who is believed to be the cousin of the Paris Attacks ringleader, Abelhamid Abaaoud, 27, blew herself up during a police raid on Nov. 18, and the exact moment was caught on video. Warning: This is a bit difficult to watch.
In the chilling clip, gunfire can be heard ringing out, as police creep alongside the building in preparation to raid the apartment housing terrorists involved in the Nov. 13 Paris attacks. Suddenly, a major explosion breaks out, and fire can be seen blowing out the top floor window as Ait Boulahcen detonates her explosive. Audio footage also features Hasna shouting, “He’s not my boyfriend!!!” before activating the suicide bomb.
Anti-terror police stormed the apartment building where they expected ISIS terrorists were hiding out — 2 were left dead and 7 arrested after the siege. Abaaoud was killed after being “blown away” by police after tapped phone conversations and surveillance revealed that the suspects were in the Saint-Denis building.
Hours after the raid, ISIS reportedly released a terrifying new propaganda video that threatened the safety of New York City. It’s unclear if the photos of the Big Apple featured are first-hand or stock photos, but the threat is still very real. However, Mayor Bill de Blasio stood firm that New York will not be afraid.
“Stoking fear is the goal of terrorist organizations, but New York City will not be intimidated,” he said in a statement. “The NYPD is the most capable police force in the country, with a robust counterterrorism operation that was just strengthened with an investment of 500 additional officers. While Times Square and Herald Square appear in the video, the NYPD in conjunction with all of our partners are taking all necessary security precautions in these areas and areas across the City. New Yorkers won’t live in fear and people should continue to go to work, live their lives and enjoy the greatest city in the world.”
