IS releases kill list with names of 8,786 Americans
The Islamic State has put up a kill list yet again. This time the threat is to US President Donald Trump and the list features only Americans in it. SITE Intel Group reported that the kill list has 8,786 names on it.
The list was released by the pro-Islamic State United Cyber Caliphate hacking group. The group released a video message threatening the US and President Trump, along with a 'kill list' of 8,786 names and addresses, commanding, "Kill them wherever you find them."
The IS is known to put out such lists. It had also put out a similar list for Indians last year, with 4,681 civilians picked in a random manner. 'O individual wolves out there in the world kill the cross where ever you find it and Kill them strongly, kill them hardly'. This was a chilling message on the private Telegram channel of the Islamic State United Cyber Caliphate. This was a message was put out before the IS put out a kill list of 4,681 civilians across the world of which 285 were Indians.
The list was examined by the NIA, who has said that on the face of it, the list appears to be a diversionary tactic. The list of Indians was prepared by Yusuf al-Hindi aka Shafi Armar, the alleged handler of the IS based out of Syria.
