ISIS SPOKESMAN ABU HASSAN AL-MUHAJIR CALLS FOR ATTACKS ON WEST AND RUSSIA IN FIRST SPEECH FOR NEARLY A YEAR

The terror group chief discussed a ‘new phase’ for future fights against Russia and Iran

ISIS spokesman Abu Hassan al-Muhajir has released his first speech in 10 months – calling for attacks in the West and Russia.

The beleaguered group once controlled lands the size of the UK in Iraq and Syria, but is now clinging on to less than three per cent of its territories.

Now, in a rambling 50-minute address released through pro-ISIS chatrooms on the messaging service Telegram, the group also called on fighters to target nations in the region, as well as World Cup host Russia.

Abu Hassan discussed a “new phase” for future fights against Russia and Iran as the US disengages from the region.

He said: “Make (Iran and Russia) a stage for all your operations, so that the pagans and the Russians after them would taste some of the hell of their tyranny.

In the speech the senior ISIS chief also pledged his continued allegiance to Ieader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The vow of loyalty suggests Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is still alive

There have been conflicting reports about his fate after the regime was run out of Mosul last year but the vow of loyalty appears to suggest he is still alive.

His speech was also scathing about US president Donald Trump’s boasts of victory over ISIS.

The militant ranted: “What victory are you talking about, America, when the mujahideen are strong, unified, and in a better state than when you left Iraq defeated years ago.

The spokesman said there was “no difference” between fighting the leaders of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iran and the Palestinians “and their American Crusader allies, or the Russians or the Europeans”.

He argued that they deserved to be treated even more harshly because “these are Arabs and are more fierce and vicious against Islam”.
