A new threat by ISIS shows a lone terrorist at one of NYC’s subway stations. The ISIS propaganda poster warns of a bombing raid on New York City’s subway
The sign in background shows the location to be High Street – Brooklyn Bridge Station
It comes with the chilling warning: ‘You will not expect where we will attack’
Daily Mail reports:
Wafa Media Foundation specialises in these types of graphics. Wafa’s threat, like others recently issued by pro-ISIS media groups, is a specific attack directive within a larger push by ISIS for lone wolf attacks as it rapidly loses territory in Iraq and Syria,’ said Rita Katz, director of the respected SITE Intelligence Group,
‘Though these threats should be taken seriously, there is also a publicity element to pro-ISIS media groups’ threats against places like the Vatican or events like 2018 FIFA World Cup.’
Across the poster is written; ‘Russia 2018. Putin you disbeliever. You will pay the price for killing Muslims.’
The threat is likely to be linked to Putin’s support for Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in his government’s fight against ISIS – a battle also fought by U.S.-backed Kurdish forces and other rebel factions in Syria.
The group’s propaganda wing – the Wafa Media Foundation – is continuing to churn out threats despite the so-called ISIS caliphate suffering huge losses in Syria and Iraq.
