Even if they don’t pull it off, the threat alone serves to “strike terror in the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60).
England are set to play one of their World Cup matches at a Russian stadium which has featured in a chilling ISIS propaganda campaign.
Sick jihadists earlier this year released an image of a terrorist brandishing a sub machine gun and a bomb, with the Volgograd Arena in Southern Russia in the background.
It carries the words ‘Wait for Us’ underneath the sinister figure.
The stadium will host Gareth Southgate’s side when they face Tunisia on June 18, today’s World Cup draw revealed.
Although Volgograd is not an area which the Home Office advises football fans not to visit, it has urged supporters travelling to watch the tournament to see travel advice before travelling.
The image, shared throughout pro-ISIS channels on the encrypted messaging application Telegram, featured an excerpt of a Quranic verse manipulated by the ISIS followers to urge fellow jihadis to take every opportunity to conduct deadly attacks in the U.S. and Russia.
Groups linked with ISIS have swamped social media with the image, as well as horrifying manipulated pictures featuring Argentina star Lionel Messi and Brazilian ace Neymar.
Barcelona star Messi appears to have been beheaded and Neymar is pictured on his knees crying while a terrorist stands next to them both with a knife in his hands.
The image was made and distributed by the pro-IS Wafa Media Foundation….
