ISIS spokesman and second Caliph Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Quraishi sent a recorded message to all the organization's operatives, mainly those in Sinai and Syria, to begin conquering Israeli "settlements," referring to both West Bank settlements and Israeli cities, multiple reports confirmed on Monday.
It is the second time the terrorist group sent a recorded message since the death of its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in October.
In the recording, Quraishi said that despite what the US and other countries may have thought of as the end for the terrorist organization with the death of al-Baghdadi, "we are still here, and we are ready to start a 'new stage' – hitting Israeli targets."
The newly-incumbent leader of the terrorist organization called upon supporters of ISIS to attack Jews in Israel and abroad with chemical weapons, declaring a religious war.
Quraishi also called on all Muslims worldwide to thwart US President Donald Trump's peace plan, and added that "The Muslims who live in Palestine... will be at the forefront of the fight against the Jews [and] foiling the 'Deal of the Century.'

The message instructed the operatives to begin targeting Jewish communities and markets, and to turn the conquered territories into fields of weapons and rocket experiments.
"
Today we have begun a new phase in our struggle with you. Our eyes now look towards Jerusalem."
Terrorist attacks associated with the organization have been carried out in Israel in the past. In June 2016, three terrorists opened fire on civilians in the Sarona Market in Tel Aviv, killing four and wounding seven others.
The perpetrators, Khalid al-Mahmara and Muhammad Ahmad Moussa Mahmara from the village of Yatta near Hebron, said they were inspired by the Islamic State.
