ISIS has urged fanatics to ‘burn America’, attack London and target Russian political and religious leaders in new propaganda.
One chilling poster warning of attacks in London shows a militant in front of an image of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
A second calls on extremists to ‘break the cross’ and shows Russian President Vladimir Putin and Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church in crosshairs.
The same poster encourages supporters to ‘burn America’, according to the respected SITE Intelligence group which monitors terror activity.
In the past, ISIS has threatened attacks in Russia over the Kremlin’s backing of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.
The propaganda material, released by pro-ISIS groups, comes days after the terror group claimed responsibility for an attack on an Orthodox church in Russia.
Khalil Khalilov screamed ‘Allahu akbar’ as he opened fire with a hunting rifle killing five women before he was shot dead by police in Kizlyar, a town in the mainly Muslim region of Dagestan.
It is not the first time ISIS has used an image of Big Ben in threats to attack London.
In November, the landmark was shown burning with a large crack across its side and an ISIS flag flying from the top.
Running down the side of the image was a message, reading: ‘We will destroy your country, as you destroyed our country’.
The other showed a bloody knife over an image of Queen Elizabeth II, with the message; ‘Under observation… soon’.
ISIS revved up its propaganda machine ahead of the Christmas holidays, producing a series of graphic posters threatening attacks on Christmas shoppers in Europe and the United States.
it coinciding with the terror group losing huge swathes of territory across its so-called caliphate in Syria and Iraq.
