The convicted ISIS terrorist who spearheaded a plot to kill Prince George has reportedly been stabbed by a fellow inmate in HM Prison Manchester, referred to as ‘Strangeways’.
Husnain Rashid received an apparent ‘huge gash’ which began on his right ear, after he was attacked by an inmate who used a toothbrush with an embedded razor blade to slash the 32-year-old.
Rashid, from Nelson, Lancashire, who was jailed for a minimum of 25 years, was reportedly taken to hospital for his injuries.
A Ministry of Justice spokesman said:
A prisoner received hospital treatment for minor injuries following an incident at HMP Manchester on Wednesday, June 25. An investigation is taking place.
Following on from the above statement, a prison source reportedly told the Daily Star there was blood all over Rashid’s cell adding, nobody in Strangeways likes him.
More specifically, the source explained:
There was blood all over his cell and the landing. Nobody likes him or what he did, like threatening that young royal lad and all the ice cream stuff. We don’t tolerate that kind of thing in Strangeways.
Before he was arrested, Rashid used the Telegram group chat to incite members of the group to target Prince George at his school.
Prosecutors claim Rashid encouraged an attack on Prince George in one particular message, which showed the prince at school with the silhouettes of two jihadis beside him.
He also encouraged attacks at British football stadiums after the Besiktas stadium bombing, which killed 48 people and injured a further 166.
As the fight against ISIS progresses, one man from the US quit his job, sold his car, and travelled to Syria to fight against the Islamic regime.
However just what was it that’s helped him when fighting against ISIS? Call of Duty, apparently.
The 24-year-old traveled to Syria in April to take up arms with the Kurds after ditching his job in customer service at a software company.
He spent six months fighting ISIS in Raqqa, alongside the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, or YPG, during which time, the city was liberated.
Speaking for the first time since he returned to Colorado on Monday, (July 23) he told how he whiled away his days playing Dungeons and Dragons, reading and chatting.
By night, he went deep into the city with an AK-47, alongside a sniper unit of Kurdish soldiers, as they occupied empty buildings and shot at ISIS fighters in a bid to advance.
John said war reenactment games like Call of Duty taught him practical skills which he used to survive, and meant he was already familiar with weapons.
