A disturbing new ISIS propaganda pamphlet has the New York City Police Department on edge, with the terror group now directly calling for strikes on the Big Apple’s mass transit system.
The chilling poster shows an ISIS fighter stalking New York’s High Street-Brooklyn Bridge subway station, saying “You will not expect where we will attack.”
The international terror group has ratcheted up its propaganda war against the West in recent weeks; calling for strikes in Paris, London, and vowing to attack the World Cup soccer competition in Russia.
“Wafa Media Foundation specialises in these types of graphics. Wafa’s threat, like others recently issued by pro-ISIS media groups, is a specific attack directive within a larger push by ISIS for lone wolf attacks as it rapidly loses territory in Iraq and Syria,’ Rita Katz, director of the SITE Intelligence Group, told the Daily Mail.

IT WAS ISIS: Terrorist Declared Allegiance to ISIS Before NYC Massacre
The suspect behind Tuesday’s devastating truck-attack in lower Manhattan left behind a would-be suicide note in the cabin of the vehicle, declaring his allegiance to the Islamic State and writing, “ISIS Lives Forever.”
Eight people were killed and 11 were seriously injured when 29-year-old Uzbekistan native Sayfullo Saipov rammed his rented pick-up truck into pedestrians and bicyclists in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood.
According to NBC News, Saipov left behind the ISIS-inspired writings in the hopes that he would be killed by law enforcement during the attack. After crashing into a school bus, the terrorist ran through the streets of lower Manhattan, screaming “Allahu Akbar” while holding a paint-ball gun and a BB pistol.
Saipov was shot in the abdomen and is recovering at a local hospital.
The NYPD and FBI believe the suspect is an Uber driver currently residing in New Jersey with his wife and three children.
“We are horrified by this senseless act of violence. Our hearts are with the victims and their families. We have reached out to law enforcement to provide our full assistance,” an Uber Spokesman said.
JIHAD ENOUGH: NYC Bomber TAUNTED TRUMP Minutes Before Botched Attack
The suspected terrorist behind this week’s botched suicide-bombing in the heart of mid-town Manhattan taunted President Trump on social media hours before the attack, saying Trump “failed to protect” the United States.
Akayed Ullah -the 27-year-old Bangladeshi native who attempted to sow chaos during the nation’s busiest rush hour commute- mocked the President on Facebook, posting the chilling message moments before he traveled to Times Square to commit his brutal act of terror.
“Trump you failed to protect your nation,” he wrote.
According to the New York Post, Ullah also scribbled bizarre notes in his passport prior to the incident, including “O AMERICA, DIE IN YOUR RAGE.”
Officials close to the investigation say Ullah was radicalized in 2014, when he began reading ISIS inspired propaganda online and listening to the sermons of a jailed jihadi cleric on the internet.
The Brooklyn resident attempted to detonate a home-made pipe-bomb Monday morning, concealing the explosive under his jacket as he stalked the hallways under New York City’s Port Authority Bus Terminal.
Ullah and four other innocent bystanders were injured when the improvised bomb failed to properly detonate.
