Two and a half weeks into Ramadan (a Holy Month of fasting and especially deep devotion to the Islamic faith), ISIS spokesperson Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajer called for international members of the Islamic State community to carry out more attacks throughout Europe and countries such as the United States, Russia, and Australia. In a message through Telegram, an encrypted messaging app, al-Muhajer says to his followers, “To the brethren of faith and belief in Europe, America, Russia, Australia, and others. Your brothers in your land have done well so take them as role models and do as they have done,” referring to attacks carried out Iran, the UK, and Philippines over the past few weeks.
Please alway remain vigilant, and do not be afraid to report suspicious activity. If you are in the United States or abroad, you can report any tips or concerns to the FBI or Homeland Security. If you are in the UK, you can report to MI5.
