AMMAN - Islamic State urged its followers on Tuesday to escalate attacks during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan on Christians, Shi'ites and Sunni Muslims fighting alongside a US-led coalition that seeks to defeat the ultra-radical group.

Islamic State spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani called on jihadists in an audio message to turn the fasting month of Ramadan, which began last week, into a time of "calamity for the infidels...Shi'ite and apostate Muslims", urging more attacks in Iraq, Syria and Libya.

He also called on Arabs in the Levant and Saudi Arabia to rise against their "tyrannical leaders."
