ISIS Threatens New York City

A new video released by ISIS on Wednesday praises the recent terror attacks in Paris and threatens a new attack in New York City’s Time Square.

The video was released by the Furat Media Center, ISIS’s media arm, and features several men speaking in Arabic and French. They congratulate ISIS over the Paris attacks and promise that they will prevail.


Before scenes from Times Square are shown, an ISIS  jihadist declares that “the attacks in Paris were just the beginning.”

The video then cuts to a militant donning a bomb vest mixed with footage of flashing billboards and yellow taxi cabs.

The video ends with a message on screen that reads “and what is to come will be worse and more bitter.”
While no one in the video specifically mentions Times Square as their target, their point is unmistakable.
New York City Police Department spokesman Stephen Davis said the agency is aware of the video, and will continue to work with the FBI and intelligence community.
Some of the images in the video were used in an ISIS propaganda video threatening New York last spring.
A year ago, Farah Mohamed Shirdon, a jihadist from Canada who joined ISIS in Syria, told Vice News that there would soon be attacks in New York City.
“A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now,” he said.
