News has sourced that ISIS militants have made concerning, and credible, threats against the United States and France, in the form of an imminent attack on rail lines.
Sources in Iraq claim that the threats are credible and are targeting New York City subway systems as well as Parisian subway systems. The warnings came from Iraq’s Prime Minister, Haider al-Abadi.
Abadi’s exact words were “I’m not sure”, in reference to whether or not these threats were imminent. He also confirmed that the suspected attack planners were foreign fighters that are members of ISIS; particularly US and French natives who defected to ISIS.
“They plan to have attacks in the metros of Paris and the U.S.,’ he added, speaking in English. ‘From the details I have received, yes it looks credible.”
“They are not Iraqis. Some of them are French, some of them are Americans. But they are in Iraq,”
According to the Prime Minister, his intelligence came from officials currently in Baghdad, who relayed him the messages this morning.
This news comes just days after the US and France ordered bomb strikes in Syria, targeting ISIS specifically. The President of Syria was warned about the attacks ahead of time, and told to seek refuge.
The strikes were targeted at high value targets of the Islamic State, particularly oil refineries now owned by ISIS; which yields approximately $2 million per day for the group. ISIS contracts expert engineers to extract thousands of oil barrels each day from sources in Iraq and Syria.
