The scene of the Nice attack. Photo: Twitter/UN Human Rights. – The deadly July 14 ramming attack in Nice, in which 84 people were killed and 303 were injured, may have been inspired by Palestinian terrorism tactics, a report by the Middle East Media Research Institute said Wednesday.

According to the report, an Islamic State terror group sympathizer who praised the brutal truck-ramming tactic used by terrorist Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, credited Palestinian terrorists for pioneering the vehicular attack method.

The Islamic State supporter considered the ramming an “imported terrorism tactic” borrowed from Palestinian terrorists, writing about it on an online messaging forum.

“Killing by ramming using civilian cars and trucks is an idea born from the Maqdisi [Palestinian] mind, which has an innovative nature of thinking up jihad tactics,” the supporter wrote, according to MEMRI. “Yesterday they taught us [about] the explosive vest, and many plans for street fighting, and today they taught us this tactic. May Allah bless Jerusalem and the environs of Jerusalem, and may Allah bless all of the Levant. … Oh Aqsa, we are coming.”
