Following a terrorist attack Wednesday morning on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris, France that left at least 12 people dead, the paper’s editor included, ISIS members and sympathizers have taken to Twitter using the hashtags “#ParisIsBurning” and “#CharlieHebdo” in celebration of the gunmen’s actions.

Here’s just a handful of tweets by people praising the Muslim extremists, many in Arabic. 

"#شارلي_ايبدو” translates as “Charlie Hebdo” in English. “#فرنسا_تحت_القصف” translates to “France under fire.”

The tweet above shows a Vine of a “succession soldier” by the name of Abdel-Wadood threatening the President of France. 

According to MRCTV, this is not the first time that Islamic extremists have targeted the magazine for its satire and illustrative comics.

In 2011, Charlie Hebdo was firebombed in an act of revenge for the magazine satirically listing the Prophet Mohammed as "editor-in-chief."
