ISIS claimed responsibility for the multiple attacks that killed 128 people in Paris on November 13.

The terrorist group released an online statement following the attacks in the French capital, calling them “the first of the storm” and mocking France as a “capital of prostitution and obscenity.”

“Eight brothers, wrapped in explosive belts and armed with machine rifles, targeted sites that were accurately chosen in the heart of the capital of France, including the Stade de France during the match between the Crusader German and French teams, where the fool of France, François Hollande, was present,” the statement read.

“Let France and those who walk in its path know that they will remain on the top of the list of targets of the Islamic State.”

The attacks took place at several locations throughout Paris, including the Bataclan concert hall — where American band Eagles of Death Metal were playing a concert when shots rang out. 

“People yelled, screamed,” a radio reporter at the concert said. 

“It lasted for 10 minutes. Ten horrific minutes where everybody was on the floor covering their head."
