The presidential election is set to take place on Tuesday, and ISIS is planning to mark the occasion in a truly terrifying way. The terrorist group is reportedly planning to launch an attack on America on Tuesday, as they think we will all be distracted with voting.
Every American needs to see this…
ISIS has called for the “slaughter’ of Americans voting in Tuesday’s Presidential election.
The terror group has called on its followers to attack voters in the election and has told Muslims not to cast a vote.
It comes after the FBI was reportedly probing a major terror attack planned for the day before the US elections in multiple states.
It is thought that al-Qaeda is plotting to strike in Texas, New York and Virginia but specific locations are not yet known.
The new ISIS threats, reported by terrorist monitoring group SITE, were made in an essay published by the terror group’s Al Hayat media centre.
The essay said that militants “have come to slaughter you and smash your ballot boxes”.
The terror group also wrote there is no difference between the Republican and Democratic parties in the US in their “policies against Islam and Muslims”.
The threat comes as polls prepare to open for the closely-fought race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Speaking about the reported al-Qaeda threats, a spokesman told CBS News:
“The counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States.
“The FBI, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, shares and assesses intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety.”
The US is beefing up its cyber defences amid fears hackers could target electronic voting systems on polling day.
