ISIS fanatics have made a new threat to carry out a terror attack at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia – as well as targeting the US and Europe.

One chilling poster shows a terrorist armed with a gun and explosives near a football stadium in Russia along with the words: ‘I swear that the Mujahideen’s fire will burn you… just you wait.’

Another shows New York’s One Worldwide Plaza skyscraper along with a gunman, a meat cleaver covered in blood and the caption: ‘Soon. Just terror. So the penalty of your strikes will be paid in your lands.’

The message, which came as part of a fresh warning of attacks against the US and Europe, appears to be a reference to coalition bombing campaigns aimed at driving the jihadists out of Syria and Iraq.

According to SITE, which monitors terror activity, pro-ISIS group the Wafa’ Media Foundation, published the new World Cup warning in the wake of another recent threat.

Last week, the terrorist group published an image of a rifle-carrying ISIS fighter and a bomb baring the regime’s infamous black flag in front of a football stadium.

The official symbol of the 2018 World Cup finals was also included in the alarming promise to bring mayhem to the tournament.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be played across 11 cities in Russia from 14 June to 15 July, when the final will be played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

Tens of thousands of fans are expected to base themselves in St Petersburg for the month-long finals.

St Petersburg, Russia’s second largest city, was the scene of an horrific ISIS attack when a briefcase bomb detonated on the underground in April, killing 14 people.

The blast was in retaliation to Russia’s airstrikes in Syria that have helped bring the regime to its knees.

Earlier this month, ISIS released another propaganda image featuring bullet-ridden photos of US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, and inviting its followers to stage more attacks on the group’s two leading foes abroad.

Thousands of Russians from mainly central Asia have travelled to the Middle East to fight for ISIS.

Experts in Moscow believe around 2,400 joined the regime in 2015 alone.
