ISIS have released several new propaganda video celebrating the attacks in Paris and threatening to carry out another in Washington, D.C.
One video, a purportedly shows an Algerian member of the terror group addressing the United States, saying, “like France we will strike in its center in Washington,” according to global security firm and NBC News analyst Flashpoint Intelligence.

Islamic State warned in the new video on November 16, 2015 that countries taking part in air strikes against Syria would suffer the same fate as France, and threatened to attack in Washington. The video, which appeared on a site used by Islamic State to post its messages, begins with news footage of the aftermath of Friday’s Paris shootings in which at least 129 people were killed.

The man also threatens that ISIS is coming to Europe with “booby traps and explosives.”
In another video, fighters are seen congratulating their “brothers” in France for perpetrating Friday night’s massacre, and urging more violence, Flashpoint said.
A senior U.S. official told NBC News that the video had not yet been authenticated.
“It looks like a typical propaganda video, and it’s getting attention now because ISIS has been in the news,” the official said.
