Just a month after a jihadist-inspired killing spree killed over a dozen people in Paris, the Islamic State called for more attacks against France on Wednesday.

In a new video circulated on social media, the extremist organization that has managed to carve out a de facto jihadist state across large swaths of Syria and Iraq is urging French Muslims to defect from the Fifth Republic and take up arms in the new “caliphate.”

Existence of the video was reported by AFP.

Beaten, caged, and burned alive, Muath al-Kasaesbeh, a Jordanian pilot engaged in a global mission against Islamic State, is the latest victim of the brutal terrorist network.

A video released online on Tuesday showed his murder from several angles. He is seen, apparently soaked in an accelerant. A line of fire approaches a barred pen, encircles the prisoner, and consumes him.

Jordan’s armed forces confirmed Kasaesbeh’s death to his family, vowing to avenge him with “strong, earth-shaking and decisive” action.

In the latest video, a masked terrorist is seen surrounded by his ISIS colleagues calling for further atrocities in France.



The terrorists called on Muslims to attack security forces in the country as well as civilians who gathered to protest the slayings of the staff members of the satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

ISIS is also demanding that the French government release suspected jihadists that were arrested by authorities for taking part in the fighting in the Middle East.
