Terror group ISIS’ newly appointed spokesman made wild threats on Monday promising attacks against Turkish embassies around the world. The spokesman also urged hardline militants in the flashpoint Iraqi town of Tal Afar near Mosul not to flee as the group fights offensives on different fronts.
“Destroy their vehicles, raid them … in their shelters so they can taste some of your misery and do not talk yourselves into fleeing,” Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajer said in an audio recording posted online.
Muhajer also said that ISIS supporters would target “the secular, apostate Turkish government in every security, military, economic and media place even every embassy and consulate that represents it in all the world’s countries.”
It was not immediately possible to verify the authenticity of the recording said Reuters. ISIS has been fighting Turkish-backed rebel groups in Syria and U.S.-backed forces in Iraq.
