Hours after a coordinated group of terrorists killed more than 150 people in Paris, France, the Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack and warned of more to come.
“Let France and those who walk in its path know that they will remain on the top of the list of targets of the Islamic State,” the group warned, after praising the actions of the “eight brothers” who carried out the attack.
The statement also referred to a “Crusader” campaign, perhaps alluding to hundreds of yearslong military campaigns in which several armies affiliated with the Catholic church battled against Muslim forces in the Holy Land during the Middle Ages.
“Let France and those who walk in its path know that they will remain on the top of the list of targets of the Islamic State, and that the smell of death will never leave their noses as long as they lead the convoy of the Crusader campaign, and dare to curse our Prophet,” ISIS wrote.
“This attack is the first of the storm and a warning to those who wish to learn.”
