The second issue of the jihadist magazine "Inspire," published in 2010, gave instructions on how to use vehicles to kill.
on the article when it was first published.
Carrying the title "The Ultimate Mowing Machine," it called for jihadists to use a pickup truck a "mowing machine, not to mow grass but mow down the enemies of Allah."
A large truck was used for what is believed that very purpose late Thursday night when at least 80 people were killed and scores injured when the driver plowed into a crowd
in Nice, France who were watching Bastille Day fireworks.
The article suggested implementing the attack in places that support the "Israeli occupation of Palestine, the American invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq or countries that had a prominent role in the defamation of Muhammad."
The article suggest using a four-wheel-drive pickup truck, adding, "the stronger the better."
"To achieve maximum carnage, you need to pick up as much speed as you can while still retaining good control of your vehicle in order to maximize your inertia and be able to strike as many people as possible in your first run," the article reads.
It also suggest bringing weapons to finish up the job in case the attack is thwarted. French authorities say
the truck used in the attack was loaded with weapons, but police shot the driver to death before they could be used.
