Radical Islamists from the Bosnian-language Vijesti Ummeta website have announced revenge attacks in retaliation for strikes against the terrorist organisation Islamic State and threatened more casualties across Europe.
“You should know that we will come to you soon, and we are already among you. Blood will soon be flowing in the streets of all of Europe, in sha Allah (God willing). Our flag will soon be flying across Europe,” the website said in a threatening message, expressing regret that more people had not been killed in the attacks in Paris on Friday night.
It said that the Paris attacks were a response to “attacks on the Caliphate which have killed a large number of Muslim civilians (mostly women and children).”
“Where are now your aircraft and your technology, your surveillance cameras and your troops you are so proud of? You should know that all that is useless when you are fighting against Him who is above you and Him who created what you possess. You should know that there will be no help and salvation for you unless you accept Islam. Otherwise, the only cure for you is a sword at your throat and a bullet to your forehead,” the message read.
Commenting on the announcement by Bosnian security services that they would prosecute posts on this website, the authors of the message said that neither French nor American services, let alone Bosnian authorities, could stop Islamic State followers, threatening a bloody retaliation against Bosnia and Herzegovina.
