The Islamic State has issued a new threat to the United States today.
"We say to the states that take part in the crusader campaign that, by God, you will have a day God willing, like France's and by God, as we struck France in the centre of its abode in Paris, then we swear that we will strike America at its centre in Washington," the video said.
The video warns countries taking part in airstrikes in Syria that they will face the same fate as Paris. (SkyNews)
Paris was attacked in a series of coordinated terror attacks from the Islamic State Friday night, leading to the deaths of 132 people. More than 350 are injured.
France launched airstrikes in Raqqa early Monday, dropping 20 bombs.
More from the transcript (originally in French):
If you are sincere to Allah in your worship and in your creed and are unable to make Hijra
Then operate within France. Terrorize them and do not allow them to sleep due to fear and horror.
There are weapons and cars available and targets ready to be hit.
Even poison is available so poison the food and water of at least one of the enemies of Allah.
Kill them and spit in their faces and run over them with your cars.
Do what ever you are able to do in order to humiliate them, for they deserve only this.
