SHAFAQNA- In a new propaganda video, the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group has threatened to conduct suicide attacks on the White House, the official residence and workplace of the US president in Washington, DC.
In the video, which was released on Thursday, militants also hailed last week’s coordinated attacks in Paris, vowing to wreak more havoc in France.
The video opens with news clips of the Paris attacks that killed 132 and then shows two militants separately speaking to the camera.
Titled “Paris Before Rome,” the footage shows a terrorist threatening to “pound” French monuments and vowing to strike at the White House.
“We will blow it up, the same as we blew up the idols in this good land,” one terrorist says in regard to the White House, Press TV reported.
The second fighter threatens to “grill” US President Barack Obama and French President Francois Hollande with explosives.
“Everybody here in the United States government are taking these threats seriously,” US State Department spokesman John Kirby said.
James Comey, the Director of the Federal Bureau Investigation (FBI), said that he was not aware of any “Paris-type attack” threats in America.
The clip is the latest in a series of propaganda videos by the terror group since the attacks on the French capital, that mention major US cities as their next target.
One day earlier, the group released another video threatening to attack New York, America’s most populous city. Washington, DC, was also featured in a previous video.
Daesh has also released a similar video threatening Russia in retaliation for the country’s airstrikes that have been targeting the Takfiri terrorist group in Syria since late September.
The Takfiri group periodically releases propaganda videos that show ghastly scenes such as videotaped beheadings and summary executions.
