In a new video released on Monday, terror group ISIS vows to attack Washington, DC next.
The video first popped up on an ISIS website and quickly spread. It threatens all countries involved in air strikes on the group, and specifically names Washington, DC.
“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.”
The Jerusalem post adds that the group claims to be based in Iraq, but despite being released on an ISIS-controlled website, it has not been officially verified. However, it is worth noting that most of the ISIS videos to date take a few days to be “officially” verified even after they are widely accepted as authentic.
“I say to the European countries that we are coming, 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,” he said.
Apparently referring to international talks to end the Syrian war, another man identified in the video as Al Karrar the Iraqi tells French President Francois Hollande “we have decided to negotiate with you in the trenches and not in the hotels.”
