ISIS new statement threatens Israel, Iran, others

ISIS released a new statement

ISIS appears to also threaten Israel in latest message, urging its Sinai affiliate to strike Israel

 

Rudaw reports the following:

The Islamic State group (ISIS) vowed to shift its focus from the remnants of its “caliphate” towards Israel, in its first audio statement since confirming the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. In a purported audio message by its spokesman Abu Hamza al-Quraishi, the jihadist organisation called for sabotaging a so-called peace plan US President Donald Trump is due to unveil. The spokesman said ISIS leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Quraishi encourages the group’s fighters to launch “a new phase” and vowed major operations against Israel. “The eyes of the soldiers of the caliphate, wherever they are, are still on Jerusalem,” the spokesman said in the 37-minute message.
