A new message purporting to come from the leader of the group calling itself the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) warned that Israelis must expect strikes soon, the Euro News website reports today (December 26, 2015).
"Palestine will be your graveyard, Jews," said the audio recording, described as being by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
It said air strikes by Russia and a US-led coalition had failed to weaken it.
"Be confident that God will grant victory to those who worship him, and hear the good news that our state is doing well. The more intense the war against it, the purer it becomes and the tougher it gets," said the message.
