The Islamic State (aka ISIS/ISIL) has released a new video in which they praised Orlando night club terrorist Omar Mateen for his attack on the Pulse night club earlier this month in an incident that left 49 people dead and many more wounded.
In the same video, ISIS calls for new attacks in the West and names specific targets including San Francisco and Las Vegas.
The videos show very specific footage of the Vegas Strip as well as the Golden Gate Bridge and financial districts of San Francisco.
The video comes on the heels of an attack carried out earlier today at an airport in Istanbul in which at least 50 people were killed and many more injured by three suicide bombers who detonated explosives near a security checkpoint after opening fire with automatic rifles.

According to a Washington Times report on the video:
The video also shows footage of Omar Mateen and the aftermath of his Orlando attack. Praise for various Paris attacks is shown as well.
The film ends with scenes of President Obama and French President Francois Hollande in the aftermath of recent terrorist attacks with blood and fire in the background.
Retired military member Scott Mann now runs a counter-terror non-profit. “They should be concerned because ISIS is not about just spewing things out, Al-Qaeda isn’t either, but when ISIS tells you they’re going to do something, they typically do it, they don’t mince words,” he said, reports ABC News.
In a publication from the terror group put out this week, they call for lone wolf terrorists to attack white Americans during their attacks and avoid minorities and gays so the attack will not be mistaken for a hate crime.
ISIS has called for attacks around the world by its supporters during the Islamic month of Ramadan which runs from June 5th – July 5th.
Please note, we do not publish ISIS propaganda videos on this website. Spreading their message of hate is what they hope for and we will not give them the platform here.
