ISIS Calls On Followers to Light Forest Fires in America & Europe
Islamic State urges supporters to spark 'ecological carnage' in chilling new propaganda
ISIS terrorists are urging their followers to light devastating forest fires across America and Europe, as the terror group hopes to create ecological carnage in the wake of their leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's death last month.
Chilling propaganda has emerged from the Islamic State that appears to be inspired by the historic summer blazes in California and Spain this year.
At least four posters from Islamic State mouthpiece Quraysh have been published that encourage fanatics to "ignite fires" to support the terror group's jihad.
"Ignite fires in the forests of America, France, Britain, and Germany, for they are painful to them," one of the posters released on Monday reads.
It was the fourth in a series of propaganda material that has been tracked since April by the Middle East Media Research Institute.
The so-called caliphate is still seeking to cause carnage around the world through its social media campaign, despite the death of ISIS chief al-Baghdadi during a US raid in Syria last month.
Historic forest fires have raged through California, Spain, and Portugal over the summer.
ISIS frequently preys on the Western misery of the day in their barbaric propaganda, according to the Daily Mail.
Indeed, the inferno which engulfed the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris in April was touted as a victory and a curse upon followers of the Christian deity.
Al-Baghdadi blew himself up, along with three of his children, during an October 26 assault by American special forces on a heavily fortified compound in Idlib, northwestern Syria.

The raid was a major blow to the group, which has lost territories it held in Syria and Iraq in a series of military defeats by the U.S-led coalition and Syrian and Iraqi allies.
Many IS members have escaped through smuggling routes to northwestern Syria in the final days of battle ahead of the group's territorial defeat earlier this year.
While others have melted into the desert in Syria or Iraq.
The reclusive leader al-Baghdadi was known to be close to one of his brothers, known by his nom de guerre Abu Hamza.
Al-Baghdadi's aide, a Saudi, was killed hours after the raid, also in northwestern Syria, in a U.S. strike.
The group named a successor to al-Baghdadi days later, but little is known about him or how the group's structure has been affected by the successive blows.
