ISIS issues ‘hit list’ against U.S. military members
(TRUNEWS) ISIS has issued a “hit list” containing the names of American military personnel.
The Pentagon is concerned the personal information of as many as 70 high-ranking officials was made public, which included names, addresses, phone numbers and photographs. Lieutenant Sean McFarland, commander of coalition forces in Syria was at the top of the list. The other targets were also in charge of U.S. strikes in Syria and Iraq.
“As you continue your aggression towards the Islamic State and your bombing campaign against Muslims, know that we are in your e-mails and computer systems, watching and recording your every move,” read the warning to the U.S. military officials, as reported by The Jerusalem Post.
The warning also stated that the caliphate “will strike at your necks in your own lands”.
“Kill them wherever they may be. Knock on the doors of their homes, cut off their heads, stab them, shoot them in the face or blow them up,” the message urged jihadists.
In a separate “hit list”, the Islamic State Hacking Division, an ISIS affiliate threatened to kill 75 U.S. Air Force members. According to RT, they claim to have a mole inside the Ministry of Defense in the UK and that they will infiltrate the country and the U.S.
The terror organization also issued a kill list against some New York City residents. About 3,600 people were named, including employees of the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security and some random citizens. The names were posted to an internet channel only accessible to ISIS supporters and was subsequently taken down, as reported by NBC New York.
Addresses were included.
WABC has reported the move is intended to cause alarm, but there have been no immediate threats.
