The terrorist group Islamic State (IS) today called on its followers to attack various cities in Europe and the United States, and thus “avenge” the Muslims of Palestine and other Middle Eastern countries.
“Let them know that they will be held accountable for their crimes in Palestine, in Iraq, in the Levant and in the rest of the Muslim countries in the streets of Washington, Paris, London, Rome and the countries of the atheists,” said the IS spokesman. , Abu Hazifa al Ansari, in an audio broadcast on the terrorist group’s channels.
In an unusual speech lasting more than half an hour, the spokesperson assured that “the conflict” must now focus on Israel’s allies instead of on the Jewish State itself, as well as with the Arab countries that maintain relations with that nation.
“The war is with the Jews and their allies”
“Within the framework of our faith that the war is with the Jews and their allies everywhere, the Islamic State announces the deployment of all its fighters, especially, and of all Muslims, in general, in support of the vulnerable to “targeting Jews, Christians and their criminal allies anywhere under heaven,” Al Ansari added.
Likewise, he called for “revenge for the Muslims of Palestine, Iraq, the Levant and Muslim countries” and urged “diversifying plans and operations with explosives, shooting, knives and attacks.”
“Pursue the Jewish and Christian prisoners in the streets of the United States, Europe and all over the world and break into their homes and kill them,” said the spokesman, who asked “not to distinguish between civil or military atheists because the Jewish and Christian armies bomb to Muslim countries without differentiating between civilians and military.”
The Islamic State claims responsibility for the Iran attack
The statements by the Islamic State spokesman come on the same day that the terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the double suicide attack on Wednesday in the city of Kerman, in southern Iran, which left at least 84 dead and more than 200 injured.
The terrorist group controlled large areas of Iraq and Syria in 2014 until its territorial defeat in 2017 and 2019, respectively, which largely undermined its operational capabilities on the ground.
However, the organization continues to launch calls to recruit members and incites its followers to attack various countries around the planet, including those with a Muslim majority, which have been the hardest hit by IS attacks.
