The Sick Way Islamic State Terrorists in Syria Celebrated Mass Killing in Brussels

"What a beautiful day today."

Some Islamic State terrorists celebrated Tuesday's attacks in Brussels, Belgium, by handing out sweets to residents in Syria and taking to Twitter to praise the perpetrators.

The Tuesday attacks that occurred in Belgium's capitol and claimed 34 lives while injuring 270 were celebrated by Islamic State supporters on social media with pictures and posts praising the perpetrators while disparaging the victims.

"What a beautiful day today," one supporter wrote before calling the victims "Belgium supporters" who did not count as true civilians, according to the Independent.

“F*** Belgium. Belgium wanted to bomb the Islamic state Now enjoy what your hands have sown," another supporter wrote.

"A lot of duas [prayers] were answered today," a third supporter wrote, according to the Independent.

"The state will force you to reevaluate your ways a thousand times before you are emboldened to kill Muslims again, and know that Muslims now have a state to defend them,” yet another Islamic State supporter wrote, according to the New York Post.

Photos also began to circulate across social media allegedly depicting Islamic State supporters handing out candies and other sweets to bystanders in celebration of the Brussels attacks.

Many of the Islamic State devotees claimed that the attacks in Brussels were geared towards exerting pressure on Belgium to release Salah Abdeslam, the Paris attack suspect who was arrested Friday, the Jerusalem Post noted. As the celebratory posts and hashtags continued to circulate across social media, Twitter began to remove and block them, the International Business Times reported.
