Weeks after Islamic State terrorists shook France’s capital, the dreaded terror group, in a newly released video, on Thursday, threatened to bomb the White House, and vowed to conduct more attacks in Paris.
The six-minute video titled “Paris Before Rome” showed an IS fighter threatening to attack French monuments and vowing to strike the White House. Xinhua reported that, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, based in Washington, the video was produced by the IS in the Dijlah province in Iraq.
“We began with you, and we shall conclude with the so-called White House,” a fighter in the video said, “We shall blow it up, just like we blew up the idols on this good land”.
Threatening the US President Barack Obama, and French President Francois Hollande, another fighter in the video said, “We shall burn you with our suicide belts and our car bombs, we shall track you down wherever you go”. This latest threat came one day after the militant group released a video that threatened to attack New York City.
Reacting to the threat, FBI Director James Comey said, on Thursday, that, he was not aware of any credible threat of a “Paris-type attack” in the US, and saw no connection between the Paris attackers, and those threatening to attack the US.
“IS and its supporters put out all kinds of propaganda like videos and magazines, but that is not credible intelligence,” he said.
The IS had claimed responsibility for the recent bloody Paris carnage that killed at least 129 people, and injured hundreds others. The group, in its magazine, claimed to have killed two hostages recently.
