ISIS has issued a new threat against players and supporters just weeks ahead of the World Cup, calling on ISIS supporters to launch attacks in Russia next month.

A poster, circulated on the internet by the pro-ISIS Wafa Media Foundation, shows a knife cutting the World Cup symbol in half with a French caption that translates to “kill them all.”

The poster is just one propaganda image created online by the terror group leading up to the World Cup, which kicks off on June 14.

Previously, an ISIS poster showed an ISIS member holding an AK-47 and warning Russian President Vladimir Putin that he will “pay the price for killing Muslims.”

Other images include a picture of an ISIS team facing off against the Russian soccer team. Messages in the picture include “IS vs Russia” and “life or death.”

Another image includes soccer star Lionel Messi in an orange jumper kneeling beside an ISIS fighter. Similar images are often used by ISIS to target well-known public figures.

In April, 14 people were killed in an ISIS attack when a bomb detonated underground in St. Petersburg.
