The Islamic State threatened to launch massive attacks against the international World Cup soccer competition Friday; vowing to “kill them all” during the upcoming global tournament in Russia.
The terror organization released its newest threat through its French-language based media wing; showing a picture of a bloody knife severing the World Cup 2018 logo under the banner “Kill them all.”
According to the Daily Mail, the threat is likely a direct response to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s staunch support of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, who has waged an ongoing war against ISIS for over six years.
The terror group has been releasing propaganda pictures for months; vowing to strike the World Cup’s audience as well as sports stars from across the globe.
The disturbing image is similar to a recent ISIS photo depicting a lone-attacker stalking the New York City subway system, saying Americans “won’t know” when and where the next attack will occur.
