ISIS senior leader Abu Mohammad al-Adnani had released an audio message three days earlier encouraging militants everywhere to attack during the month of Ramadan.[1]

One attack, at a Tunisian beach resort, killed at least 39; a bombing at a Shia mosque in Kuwait City killed 27 and injured several; another attack in Leego District in Somalia killed at least 70 African Union soldiers and injured 27 more; and one man was decapitated while several were injured during the Saint-Quentin-Fallavier attack. The total number of deaths was 137.

On the morning of 26 June 2015, two Islamist militants burst through the factory gates of an Air Products factory in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier near the city of Lyon.
