ISIS is promising to unleash attacks for the Christmas holidays in a feverish propaganda push. The warnings follow crippling blows dealt to the terror group from a recent U.S. military and allied surge.
Fox News reported on ISIS’s Christmas-themed warnings.
“Ten days till Christmas and there is this ominous warning from ISIS tonight. Soon on your holidays, soon, very soon,” host Martha McCallum said. “The terror group’s supporters promising attacks on churches over the course of the Christmas season and it comes just days after the failed suicide bombing in New York City in the subway system.”
“An Islamic state supporter posted this graphic showing an ISIS fighter looking at Washington’s National Cathedral, which is in flames,” Catherine Herridge said. “Like previous propaganda, it includes a crypic message suggesting, even threatening, an attack timed for the holidays.
“Previous propaganda includes a cryptic message threatening an attack and time for the holidays holidays,” Herridge continued. “This was not published by the ISIS news agency, but one of its followers. ISIS is now encouraging followers to flee the scene and survive.”
“The loss of the so-called caliphate — the group is facing a shortage of recruits who are willing to for the cause,” Herridge also said. “Also, a contact he does work for the U.S. Government tells Fox that he believes ISIS has not been more aggressive taking responsibility for the 27-year-old suspect and Monday’s New York City subway attack because the terror group is scattered, having lost its base in Iraq and Syria, and key decision-makers who ran their external operations and propaganda are dead.”
“Analysts are also telling us to watch Hamza bin laden, this is the son of Usama bin Laden,” Herridge said. “He is believed to be in his late 20s. It’s believed that Hamza could bring together Al Qaeda and the remnants of ISIS because he’s young, doesn’t have the baggage of the current Al Qaeda leadership, and Hamza bin laden, for obvious reasons, has the name recognition.”
