After the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, France, which are believed to be the work of the Islamic State, a new video has reportedly emerged from the group, stating that their next targets would be key cities in the western world, including Washington, D.C.
The warning came from ISIS in a new video uploaded on Monday, warning countries which are continuing to strike back at them in Syria, that they would suffer the same fate as the people of France, should they continue with air strikes.
Dressed in fatigues and a turban, a man identified as Al Ghareeb the Algerian in subtitles, appears in the footage which was uploaded to a channel used by the Islamic State, according to BCNN1.
The video begins with news footage of the devastation caused in Friday’s Paris attacks where a reported 132 victims were killed. It is reportedly aimed at countries involved in what it calls the “crusader campaign.”
“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 man said.
Ignoring the video of what is thought to be the work of Islamic State fighters in Salahuddine, a province north of Baghdad, Iraq, fighter jets from France launched their biggest raids yet on Syria and the Islamic State. The ISIS stronghold in the city of Raqqa was one of the first targets for the French attack in retaliation for the terrorist attacks.
