SICK ISIS supporters have celebrated the Nice and Avignon terror attacks with a horrific poster of a blood-soaked corpse.
The latest attacks in France are “already being celebrated massively across jihadi communities” according to the SITE Intelligence monitoring group.

SITE director Rita Katz said it was “hard to recall social media celebration this massive for terrorism” with jihadists taking to Twitter after the latest murders.
Tensions have been high between France and various Muslim countries following the beheading of Samuel Paty after showing Prophet Mohammed cartoons in his classroom.
Katz said that jihadists were celebrating the attackers’ “freedom of action” following the recent decapitations and stabbings across France.
A beheaded woman was among three killed by a suspected Tunisian migrant in a bloody rampage in a church in Nice – as France was rocked by two ‘terror’ attacks in one day.
Katz said: “These new attacks come amid a massive and enduring wave of jihadi media condemning France and its cartoonists.”
Extremists have shown their pleasure at the recent attacks in France and Saudi Arabia – with one picture showing a bleeding corpse covered by a French flag.
Katz added that the “prospect of co-ordination” between the various attackers seemed “increasingly plausible,” although not confirmed.
The most recent vicious incident saw three people killed as the suspected terrorist stormed the Basilica of Notre-Dame in Nice.
Separate suspects are understood to have launched attacks in Nice and Avignon as France was rocked by a day of violence.
The first victim in the Nice attack has since been named as Vincent Loquès, who is understood to have been the church warden.
Loquès, a dad-of-two, was the building’s 54-year-old sacristan, an officer charged with taking care of the church.
Elsewhere, there have been at least three other incidents as French president Emmanuel Macron described his country as “under attack”.
It was reported a knifeman was caught near a church in Paris after telling his family he wanted to copy the attack in Nice, while another man was arrested while he was about to board a tram armed with a 12inch knife.
Also, a security guard at the French Consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, was stabbed as anti-France sentiment rages across many Muslim nations.
Macron denounced the Nice bloodbath as an “Islamic terror attack” and defiantly said the nation would not “give up on our values”.
The president announced up to 7,000 soldiers will be deployed to the streets across France in the wake of the violence to protect landmarks, schools and places of worships.
Meanwhile, leaders in Muslim countries have shown their outrage with France and President Macron.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused Europe of treating Muslims like how the Nazis “lynched” Jews following the Mohammed cartoon row.
He has also called for a boycott of French goods, called European leaders “fascists,” and said Muslims are “now subjected to a lynch campaign similar to that against Jews in Europe before World War II.”
The attack comes after he verbally bashed French President Emmanuel Macron over his tough stance on Islamic extremism following the beheading of Samuel Paty.

The teacher was brutally murdered by a jihadi in the streets of Paris after showing his schoolchildren cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.
The 47-year-old teacher was posthumously given the Legion d’Honneur – France’s highest award – and Macron insisted the country would “not give up our cartoons”.
