In a disturbing new video from ISIS aimed at the Russian people, the terror organization threatens hell in Moscow.
This video features clips off ISIS fighters, European police, and running text of threats put to music.
A sample of what was said is:
“Soon, very soon, the blood will spill like an ocean…The kafir throats will tremble from the knives. We will make your wives concubines and make your children our slaves. Europe is shaking, Russia is dying. The Kremlin will be ours.”
Some people may have problems watching the video on their mobile devices so here is CNN’s video of it which should work on mobile. The original video is below that which is giving people problems.

From the video description:
ISIS on Thursday purportedly released a video and audio statement threatening to attack Russia “very soon.” In the nearly five-minute long video, a chant in Russian is heard over visual compilations of old ISIS propaganda and generic video of Russian cities and buildings. The video is titled “Soon Very Soon the Blood Will Spill like an Ocean” and was posted two weeks after a Russian commercial jet crashed in Egypt, killing 224 people. An ISIS affiliate has claimed it brought down the plane. The video was posted on ISIS-affiliated social media accounts.
Russian security services are working to verify the authenticity of the video, the country’s state news agency Sputnik reports.
Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told reporters in Moscow: “I’ve read news about this video, but have not seen it myself. I don’t know the authenticity of this video, and I don’t know the authenticity of these sources. “But in any case I’m sure this material will be subject of scrutiny by our special services.”
Russian air power has backed the Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad’s military in its fight against ISIS since October 1. While Russian officials have said their airstrikes target ISIS, U.S. officials have said some have not been in areas where the terror group is operating.
Russia has no wish to see Syria become a radical Islamist state or a long-term safe haven for terror groups, with possible consequences for its own Muslim regions in the Caucasus.
Images of the video are below where ISIS says soon, very soon, it is coming after Russia.
