The sister of the Muslim suicide bomber in Manchester, England said her brother’s actions were out of “a love of Islam” and a revenge for U.S. airstrikes on Syria, the Gateway Pundit reports.
Jamona Abedi did not condemn her 22-year-old brother’s actions but instead gave an explanation for what he did.
Abedi, who currently lives in Tripoli, Libya, said her brother Salam Abedi had become increasingly violent over the past year because he believed Muslims were under attack in Britain and all over the world.
She said that President Donald Trump’s decision in April to launch airstrikes at Syria was the final straw for Salman and the catalyst for Monday night’s atrocity.
Abedi said, “He did what he did in revenge, and in love for Islam.”
She added that her brother must have wanted revenge for the Muslim children dying everywhere.
Abedi detonated a device as fans left the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena, killing 22 people and injuring dozens.
