There were several threats against France leading up to the Nice terrorist attack

The July 14th attack in Nice, France was preceded by incessant incitement by the Islamic State (ISIS) and its supporters, calling for attacks in Europe, and particularly in France.

MEMRI  This incitement is conducted online in social media – most notably on Facebook, Twitter, and Telegram. It comes in every imaginable form:  video clips featuring ISIS fighters encouraging the group’s followers in Europe to carry out attacks, songs and audio recordings aimed at inspiring would-be attackers, essays and articles justifying attacks on women and children, posters with violent imagery showing European landmarks being attacked or glorifying terrorism, and so on.

In his May 21 speech, ISIS spokesman Abu Muhammad Al-‘Adnani reiterated his call for attacks in the West and said that those supporters in the West who cannot join ISIS by coming to the lands in controls must carry out attacks in their countries of residence. He especially emphasized the targeting of civilians (see MEMRI JTTM report ISIS Spokesman Al-Adnani Urges ‘Caliphate Soldiers’ To Target Civilians In Europe During Ramadan, May 21, 2016).
