Washington, Jan 29: The Islamic State (ISIS) has released a new video in which the dreaded terror outfit has threatened to behead US President Barack Obama in White House and claimed to transform America into an Islamic nation.

"This is the fate of anyone who opposes Islam. Know, oh Obama, that we will reach America. Know also that we will cut off your head in the White House and transform America into a Muslim province," the IS member said in the video - translated by the Memri Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor.

The footage, entitled 'Bombardment of Peaceful Muslims in the City of Mosul', showed a masked ISIS fighter threatening attacks on the US, France, Belgium and the Kurds before decapitating a Kurdish soldier.

The IS fighter also claimed that terror group's followers will be carrying out car bomb explosions in European nations that are part of the US-led coalition fighting against it and will kill Americans and Kurds.

Earlier on Wednesaday, the terror group released an audio message purportedly by Japanese hostage Kenji Goto, extending the deadline for Jordan's release of an Iraqi would-be hotel bomber linked to al Qaida.

Jordan had offered a precedent-setting prisoner swap to the Islamic State group on Tuesday in a desperate attempt to save a Jordanian air force pilot the militants purportedly threatened to kill, along with a Goto.

The audio recording released late Tuesday, in English, says the Jordanians must present Sajida al-Rishawi at the Turkish border by sunset today, or Jordanian pilot Mu'as al-Kasaseabeh will be killed.
