ISIS supporters are attempting to strike fear across the globe by threatening attacks on major cities.
A poster released by pro-ISIS group Muharar al-Ansar shows a handful of landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Sydney Opera House, and the Statue of Liberty in New York.
Written across the ‘terror meme’ in red letters are the word’s ‘What Will Be the Next?’, alluding to potential attacks on one of the cities.
The poster was initially shared on Telegram, an encrypted messaging app favoured by jihadists, before it was picked up by monitoring groups.
Since ISIS’s ‘caliphate’ in Syria and Iraq has been destroyed, the terrorist organisation now only controls small pockets or territory across the Middle East and north Africa.
Supporters have therefore increasingly turned to online campaigns to project an image of terror and power.
Yesterday, Muharar al-Ansar released another poster, calling on would-be jihadists to carry out deadly attacks using a lorries.
The poster showed a black-and-white front of a truck, with the words ‘hit them with a truck’ and to ‘kill them all’, terror monitoring agency SITE Intelligence group reports.
Last Tuesday, another one of their posters urged followers to carry out attacks using automatic weapons.
The poster declared the AR-15 assault rifle the ‘weapon of choice’ for ‘festivals and large gatherings’.
‘Select a high place. Therefore you will have a great angle of vision to direct shots.’
