ISIS Calls for Attacks on Halloween Celebrations: 'Get Out Before It's Too Late'

A pro-ISIS media group circulated an image today of a knife dripping blood over the Eiffel Tower, calling on lone jihadists to attack on Halloween.

"Enjoy their gathering," reads the text superimposed over the image. "Terrorize October 31."

Added was the hashtag #Paslechoix: "no choice." Below that was the message, "Get out before it's too late."'

It was produced by Centre Médiatique An-Nûr, which has produced in French not only videos about jihadist operations but about how online jihadis can practice web security. The group also distributes ISIS' Rumiyah magazine, which has not yet been published this month, in French.

The image was shared by a Twitter account that distributes caliphate news, images and videos in French.

The threat came on the same day that French President Emmanuel Macron signed a controversial counterterrorism law that supplants the state of emergency that has been in effect since the November 2015 terror attacks that claimed 130 lives around Paris.
