It’s only been a few days since Barcelona, Spain, was hit by a terror attack from ISIS. But the terrorist group, in a new video, is already vowing more of the same.
The country’s sieve-like borders are proving fatal.
In Barcelona, terrorists just killed 15 and injured more than 100.
And now, a new ISIS video shows terrorists speaking Spanish to make clear the message: We’re not done with you, just yet.
Fox News has more:
In the video, two ISIS fighters are heard speaking in Spanish proclaiming that Al Andalus, a region in central and southern Spain once controlled for more than five centuries by Muslims, would once against become “part of the caliphate.”
“If you can’t make the hegira [journey] to the Islamic State, carry out jihad where you are; jihad doesn’t have borders,” one of the men says.
The man, whose face is uncovered, is identified in the video as Abu Lais Al Qurdubi or Abu Lais “of Cordoba,” the southern Spanish city that was once the capital of Al Andalus.
El Pais reported that police identified the person speaking as 22-year-old Muhammad Yasin Ahram Perez from Cordoba.
“Spanish Christians: Don’t forget the Muslim blood spilled during the Spanish Inquisition,” Muhammad Ahram said in the video. “We will take revenge for your massacre, the one you are carrying out now against the Islamic State.”
The second man in the video, whose face is covered, is identified as Abu Salman Al Andalus.
“We hope that Allah accepts the sacrifice of our brothers in Barcelona. Our war with you will continue until the world ends,” he says in the video.
ISIS declared a worldwide caliphate in 2014. This video is the first in Spanish to be released by the terrorist group.
The video comes more than a year after the group issued its first threat to Spanish-speaking countries.
“We are going to kill any Spanish infidel ‘innocent’ if we find them in Muslim lands, and if we do not achieve it in our lands, remember that men and women who follow our message [are] citizens of Spain and all Spanish-speaking countries,” read the statement.
