Islamic State jihadists have threatened “a calamity for kuffars” over the fasting month of Ramadan, at the same time releasing a gruesome new video of unorthodox execution methods.
The chief propagandist for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, released the audio tape of his Ramadan message.
In it, he says that Haditha – west of Ramadi – will be the next town in Iraq to fall under Isil’s sway, and incites more attacks by its followers worldwide. The attacks should be on “kuffars” (infidels), “Crusaders, Shias and Apostates”, he says.
“Be keen to conquer in this holy month and to become exposed to martydom,” he says.
