Brussels Under Attack

Recommended Posts

Scouser    115

Has anyone seen the news this morning? 

Belgium is under attack and reports say that 15+ people have been killed as two explosions happened in the Zaventem Airport which happened earlier this morning around 7am GMT, which later followed by another attack on a metro.

Belgium have deployed the Army onto the streets

Yeah, it's looking like a second Paris - just with a lower death toll hopefully. Allegedly there was gunfire and Arabic yelling at the airport, plus a suicide bomb may have been used there too, so it could be retribution from the capture of Salah Abdeslam. In the same breath that could easily not been the case. Either way, my heart goes out to Belgium and the victims and I hope that there is no further violence - except against the perpetrators.

It could of been worse. If the Belgians didn't capture Salah before, could've possibly been a higher death toll. This is still a horrible and desperately coward attack, and those involved will be brought to justice... One way or another.

 His arrest is probably the reason this attack happened

Hopefully this doesn't devolve into a discussion about Islam. Let's just focus on those who died and honouring them, no attention to the perpetrators is the best amount.

It's a double edged sword - acting against perpetrators and suffering further loss or not acting at all and giving the attackers impunity.

My condolences to those lost and their family.

It's a disgusting world we live in sometimes. Thoughts are with the families and friends of people whom have lost their lives.

This is really sad to see. The even more sad part is that everyone knew it would happen eventually. Brussels is literally ISIS's terror hotspot. I hope they find the rest of the people hiding there that are responsible and bring them to justice. My prayers are with the families

Stay indoors and wait is the only thing they can do now. Rest in peace those who lost their lives.

Hopefully those fuckers meet their maker soon.

Thoughts go out to Brussels.

Rust in vrede lieve zuiderburen.

"Waarom loopt het leven nooit zoals het hoort,

waarom worden er nog steeds mensen onnodig vermoord?

Waarom kan niemand aardig tegen elkaar zijn,

waarom juist steeds die ruzie en die ondraagbare pijn?

Waarom zoveel vragen,

waarom kan een mens zichzelf niet meer gedragen?"

Always expect the unexpected. Rest in peace to the victims and death to the perpetrators.

As a belgian I will give an update from what I've gathered from multiple belgian news agencies everything is really hectic so not everything is correct

Targets hit:

National Airport Zaventem located outside of Brussels

Metro station close to the goverment buildings located in the heart of Brussels

  • Adviced to stay inside, the entire army has been mobilized, highways have been shut down on some places, all metros closed(in some regions) all public transport busses and trains been closed(In certain regions we split up our metro busses and trains over certain regions)
  • All wifi hotspots are free cause our telephone network is overloaded
  • The bombs where loaded with fucking NAILS, people that are not government officials have been spotted with guns
  • Traffic jams in the capitol everywhere
  • Hotel lobbies are used as make shift hospitals
  • Nuclear powerplants have been evacuated and secured by military
  • 30+ confirmed death
  • 150+ wounded


UPDATE 2:54PM

Unreliable source claims that IS has claimed the attacks.

Other source claims that 3 Belarus men where involved in the attack

Picture off the location where the bombs went off inside of the Airport


UPDATE 2:59 PM

Salah Abdesalam might have given out a go-ahead over the news conference of yesterday evening in wich he claimed he would help the goverment with future and past terrorist attack plans.

Specialist claim that it might have been the go-ahead code.

Let our thoughts go to the families and our respects to those that have fallen.

Let's not have a political debate here, or have any hate but only spread our respect and love to those who are effected.

In times like these, we all have to support each other and stand strong as a strong unit and force, God bless these poor souls.

It is sad that this attack does not surprise me in the slightest. This type of thing is only going to escalate if something isn't done soon.

Sucks that society now a days is prone to shit like this happening. We'll see many more to come and it's fucked up. It's like a normal thing. Wake up look at the news... Oh another school shooting oh another terrorist attack... Oh another suicide bomber.. Another mass execution. It never stops. It's pretty sad tbh.

Tragic beyond words. I have family who had a break in Brussels planned this weekend. Thankfully they're staying home now. :(
