Things are not looking too good in the Middle East right now.
After President Obama launched an airstrike in Iraq, many alleged supporters of the ISIS terrorist group took to Twitter to make threats against the U.S. and show some gruesome photos of dead American soliders.
The tweets that were sent out showed graphic photos of dead bodies and U.S. marines being hung from bridges, and users used the hashtags #AmessagefromISIStoUS and #WarOnWhites.
One Twitter user wrote along with a picture:
‘This is a message for every American citizen,’ read one message sent with the hashtag. ‘You are the target of every Muslim in the world wherever you are.’
‘US citizens will be a target for ISIS,’ another reads, ‘because of American airstrike[s] on Iraq.’
The Daily Mail reports:
The extremists have taken hundreds of women from a religious minority captive, according to an Iraqi official, and thousands of other civilians have in fear.
The latest Twitter blitz in an extension of ISIS’s propaganda push on social media that the terror group has used throughout their campaign to spread fear and intimidate the world.
Over the last few months the medium has been used to post graphic pictures of beheadings, mass killings and boastful messages from fighters who have come from Western countries.
Some of the tweets have been deleted, as well as some of the accounts. To see photos of the gruesome threats, click here.
