Before Ramadan, ISIS threatened “a month of calamity everywhere for nonbelievers.”
Their final score for their fulfilled month of calamity was 350 killed and hundreds more injured across several countries.
ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani released an audio recording on May 21, in which he called on jihadists to “get prepared, be ready … to make it a month of calamity everywhere for nonbelievers…especially for the fighters and supporters of the caliphate in Europe and America.”
He told the jihadists to “punish the Crusaders day and night, and bring fear to them, all the time, until neighbors become terrified of one another.”
He also urged jihadists to conduct lone-wolf attacks and said doing so would produce “the great reward of martyrdom.”
From Orlando to Istanbul to Bangladesh to Iraq to Saudi Arabia, the terrorists heeded his call.
Now, ISIS has made a new threat – to continue their slaughter “until Islamic law is established worldwide.” New York Post reports the following:
Meanwhile, Islamic State warned that attacks would continue until Islamic law was established worldwide, saying in a video that the Dhaka assault was just a hint of what is to come.
“What you witnessed in Bangladesh … was a glimpse. This will repeat, repeat and repeat until you lose and we win and the sharia is established throughout the world,” said a man identified as Bangladeshi fighter Abu Issa al-Bengali, in the video monitored by SITE intelligence site.
The video began with pictures of recent attacks in Paris, Brussels and Orlando in the United States that the Middle East-based militants have claimed.
Police said they were stepping up security in response to the video threat.
