Internal communications from ISIS, intercepted by threat intelligence platform CyberEyesOn from BLACKOPS Cyber, show that the terrorist organization gave the shooter, Stephen Paddock, a Muslim name and claim he converted to Islam several months ago. Moreover, fake information appeared that he is a part of the leftist group Antifa.
ISIS's Amaq propaganda agency claimed that a soldier was Stephen Paddock who was later identified by Las Vegas Police as a 64-year-old retired accountant [VIDEO], according to Bloomberg.
"This saves the Islamic State the trouble of having to "retract" a claim, since from the standpoint of communicating to the external world, no formal claim was made if the only material ever issued was an Amaq News report relying on a mere 'source, '" Al-Tamimi wrote. The ISIS statement did not provide a shred of evidence to support its claim that he was a "soldier" from its ranks, saying only that the man, who it identified by the alleged pseudonym "Abu el-Bar al-Amriki", had converted to Islam three years ago.
At least 59 people were killed and 530 were injured in the attack.
Eric Paddock told reporters in Orlando, Florida, his brother "had nothing to do with any political organization, religious organization, no white supremacists - nothing, as far as I know".

Mattis: US wants to resolve N. Korea standoff diplomatically
Defense Secretary said on Tuesday that Washington will work with New Delhi to eradicate terrorist safe havens across the world. New Delhi has committed $3 billion in development projects in Afghanistan and trains Afghan officers in India.
The FBI said there is no proof the attack was linked to an worldwide terrorist group. Paddock killed himself as police closed in, making it easier for ISIS to make the claim.
Another Oct. 2 communication claims that Paddock was acting under the requests of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi for the objective of "targeting the coalition governments". It claimed an attack on a Philippine casino on June 2, 2017, where a gunman had killed 36 people. The group also claimed a knife attack on Sunday that killed two women in Marseille, France, but French authorities say they have found no link between the attacker and ISIS. He said of renewed calls for greater gun control that "we'll be talking about gun laws as time goes by".
"The attack on Las Vegas is a soldier of the Islamic state and the operation was carried out in response to appeals targeting coalition countries", states one of the communications, translated from Arabic, which ISIS sent out on October 2.
The shooter, Omar Mateen, had pledged allegiance to Isis and it claimed the attack.
But the group remains active in recruiting followers on social media, and has repeatedly called on its supporters to carry out attacks in Western nations.
