ISIS threatens to bomb New York subway in poster of terrorist dressed as tourist

ISIS propaganda chiefs have threatened to bring death and destruction to New York’s subway – in a chilling new poster.

The terror group has vowed to attack Paris and target the World Cup finals in Russia in recent weeks as part of a global campaign of ‘lone wolf strikes’ as they lose ground in the Middle East.

In the latest warning by Islamic State, uploaded to militant Islamist messaging platforms, a man stands on the platform at New York’s High Street/Brooklyn Bridge Metro Station with explosives and a timer behind him.

The poster includes the threat: "You will not expect where we will attack."

ISIS’s propaganda wing, the Wafa Media Foundation, continue to issue fresh threats at Western targets despite the so-called caliphate losing ground in Syria and Iraq.

Rita Katz, director of the SITE Intelligence Group said: "Wafa Media Foundation specialises in these types of graphics.

"Wafa’s threat, like others recently issued by pro-ISIS media groups, is a specific attack directive within a larger push by ISIS for lone wolf attacks as it rapidly loses territory in Iraq and Syria.

"Though these threats should be taken seriously, there is also a publicity element to pro-ISIS media groups’ threats against places like the Vatican or events like 2018 FIFA World Cup."

ISIS has claimed responsibility for a number of deadly attacks in Europe last year – including those in Manchester and London.

It has made frequent threats against Pope Francis and the Vatican, especially in the lead-up to big events including Christmas.

In December 2016, 12 people were killed when an ISIS terrorist killed a lorry driver and ploughed his truck into the Christmas market in Berlin.
