ISIS has issued a chilling threat to carry out an attack at the World Cup in Russia next year with a poster of footballer Lionel Messi crying blood.
SITE Intel Group, an intelligence organisation, has published an image released by pro-ISIS media unit Wafa’ Foundation.
The image shows 5-time world footballer of the year Lionel Messi behind bars and shedding tears of blood.
The image has the words “You are fighting a state that does not have failure in its dictionary.”
The image also has the words “Just Terrorism”, a likely play on sport brand Nike‘s “Just Do It” slogan.
In another similar poster, a terrorist can be seen armed with a gun and explosives near a football stadium in Russia along with the words: ‘I swear that the Mujahideen’s fire will burn you… just you wait’.
