Islamic State message to America

As Iraqi forces retake control of the country’s largest dam, a video by Islamic State militants have vowed to “drown” American targets in blood if the United States continues to launch airstrikes against the group.

Specifically, the militants said that they would launch attacks against Americans “in any place” if their members are killed by airstrikes, Reuters reported. The recording also showed images of an American man who was beheaded during the initial war in Iraq and flashed a message that read, “we will drown all of you in blood.”

The video’s release comes as President Barack Obama announced Iraqi and Kurdish security forces, with the help of US air power, were able to regain control of the Mosul Dam, marking the most significant victory for Iraq’s military since American airstrikes began more than one week ago.
