Islamic State warned Monday that more attacks are to come in countries taking part in air strikes against Syria.
The French government almost immediately started air strikes against ISIS strongholds in Iraq and Syria following the “act of war” perpetrated on its country.
ISIS is threatening to do more of the same in busy cities across Europe and elsewhere – including Washington DC.
On Sunday, French fighter jets launched their biggest raids in Syria to date targeting the city of Raqqa. Officials say the operation was carried out in coordination with U.S. forces.
The aftermath of Friday’s deadly Paris attacks is shown in recently released footage purportedly by Islamic State. The news coverage of the suicide bombings and shootings at some of the city’s most popular Friday night hotspots is followed by a message to countries involved in what ISIS called the “crusader campaign.”
A man identified as ‘Al Ghareeb the Algerian’, delivered the following message: “We say to the states that take part in the crusader campaign that, by God, you will have a day, God willing, like France’s and by God, as we struck France in the center of its abode in Paris, then we swear that we will strike America at its center in Washington.”
While the authenticity of the video was not immediately verified- it’s allegedly the work of IS fighters located in an Iraqi province, north of Baghdad. According to Reuters, another man identified in the video as ‘Al Karrar the Iraqi’ addresses French President Hollande directly: “We have decided to negotiate with you in the trenches and not in the hotels.”
The first man in the video goes on to say: “… we are coming with booby traps and explosives, coming with explosive belts and (gun) silencers and you will be unable to stop us because today we are much stronger than before.”
