ISIS claimed responsibility Thursday for the terrorist attack in New York City earlier the week that killed eight people and wounded another dozen.

The statement in the group’s weekly newsletter declared the truck attack as “one of the most prominent attacks targeting Crusaders in America.”

The group called the suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, 29, a “soldier of the Caliphate” and said the attack was a response to ISIS’ call to target “citizens of the Crusader countries involved in the alliance against the Islamic State.”

“On Tuesday, 11 Safar, one of the soldiers of the Islamic State attacked a number of crusaders on a street in New York City, close to the monument for the 9/11 raid, which resulted in killing and wounding more than 60 crusaders, and unto Allah is all praise,” the newsletter said in a translation by SITE Intelligence Group, a company that tracks extremist groups.

It should be noted that 12 people – not more than 60 – were injured in the truck attack.

According to a complaint filed against the suspect, investigators said Saipov was a recently radicalized immigrant who plotted the attack about a year ago after getting his inspiration from ISIS videos.

The 29-year-old driver who plowed a truck into innocent people on a New York City bike path Tuesday, killing eight and injuring in 12, was a recently radicalized immigrant who plotted the attack about a year ago after getting his inspiration from ISIS videos, according to a criminal complaint filed against him on Wednesday.

Sayfullo Saipov, 29, was charged with an outstanding count of providing material support to a terrorist organization and one count of violence and destruction of a motor vehicle in connection with the deadliest terror attack in New York City since Sept. 11, 2001.

A day after President Trump called for the death penalty against the Uzbek immigrant, Trump on Thursday morning tweeted that he’d “love” to transfer the suspect to Guantanamo, “but statistically that process takes much longer” than the federal system.

He implored the court system to “move fast. DEATH PENALTY.”

FBI: NYC Terror Suspect Inspired by ISIS Magazine with Instructions for Truck Attacks

The Uzbek immigrant who plowed into people on a bike path in New York City on Tuesday afternoon, killing eight and injuring nearly a dozen others, was inspired by ISIS and planned the attack for weeks, according to the FBI.

The FBI announced Wednesday afternoon that it was seeking information on another Uzbek immigrant who may have helped in the attack. But about an hour later, the FBI said during a press conference that Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, 32, was no longer being sought. It wasn’t immediately clear why investigators are no longer searching for the man, whose image was circulated on wanted posters.  

Reuters reported the truck driver,  Sayfullo Saipov, had been in contact with a man who had been investigated by the FBI. It wasn’t immediately clear if that was Kadirov. 

Saipov was charged in federal court Wednesday with terrorism-related crimes in connection with the deadliest terror attack in the city since Sept. 11, 2001.

Investigators say Saipov was shot in the abdomen by a police officer, planned the attack for weeks “in the name of ISIS,” and was inspired by the terrorist group’s magazine in which followers were urged to carry out a truck attack and leave behind a note indicated their support for ISIS.

Authorities found handwritten notes left behind by Saipov that suggested ISIS “would endure forever.”

Investigators have interviewed Saipov at the hospital, where he is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Videos viewed by authorities show Saipov driving at a moderate speed until he accelerated into the jogging path.

President Trump used the attack to slam a bipartisan immigration bill that created a visa lottery program that allowed Saipov to enter the U.S.
