The Islamic State has called on its followers to kill Australians at several Australian landmarks including the Sydney and Melbourne Cricket Grounds, where matches for the 2016 Australian Football League finals will be held this week.
The IS urged its supporters to target the SCG, MCG, Syndey Opera House, Bondi Beach and other landmarks to avenge the recent death of IS Australian fighter Ezzit Raad in Syria.
Through its propaganda magazine “Rumiya,” the IS urged its followers to “stab, shoot, poison and kill” Australians “wherever you find them.”
“Kill them on the streets of Brunswick, Broadmeadows, Bankstown, and Bondi,” IS magazine Rumiya reads (via Sydney Morning Herald). “Kill them at the MCG, the SCG, the Opera House, and even in their backyards.
“Stab them, shoot them, poison them, and run them down with your vehicles. Kill them wherever you find them until the hollowness of their arrogance is filled with terror and they find themselves on their knees with their backs broken under the weight of regret for having waged a war against the believers, and by Allah’s will, and then through your sacrifices, this Ummah will be victorious.”
