The Islamic State has released a new video on the anniversary of 9/11 in which it threatens the US with a fresh wave of attacks. During the 10-minute video, the terrorist group warns the US that its militants are "back in America" and that the country can expect another large-scale attack like the one in 2001.
According to the Daily Mail, the video also claims the US should be prepared for "cars full of explosives and suicide bombers". The video, which was released on the 14th anniversary of the attack on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre in New York City, quotes deceased Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
"We declared jihad against the US government, because the US government is unjust, criminal and tyrannical. It has committed acts that are extremely unjust, hideous and criminal whether directly or through its support of the Israeli occupation," Bin Laden is quoted as a jihadi song in English plays in the background.
The Daily Mail reported that the footage, which was claimed by Isis, also shows photos of Bin Laden next to images of the burning Twin Towers after they were hit by the hijacked planes. It also quotes the former Al Qaeda leader stating, "Every Muslim, from the moment they realise the distinction in their hearts, hates Americans, hates Jews, and hates Christians."
Footage of Isis militants fighting are interwoven in the video with the lyrics, "The soldiers of Allah are ready," being sung in English. The warning against the US is seen later in the video, the Daily Mail reported. "We will repeat September 11 and we will send cars full of explosives and suicide bombers."
Images of the terrorist organisation's "Islamic Cyber Army" depict the names of members, including "Dr Isis," "Syria Virus" and "Hacker Aldmar." The Daily Mail noted that the video was released just a day after a recording from Ayman al Zawahiri, the current leader of Al Qaeda, encouraging home grown attacks by Muslim men in the US and other Western countries.
