The ISIL Takfiri militants have threatened to strike U-S targets around the globe.
In an online video, the militant group that has seized large parts of Iraq says it will attack Americans in any place if U-S air strikes hit them. The footage shows a photograph of a U-S citizen who was beheaded during the U-S occupation of Iraq in 2011 and victims of snipers. It also features a statement that reads: "We will drown all of you in blood." The warning comes as Washington is helping Kurdish peshmerga forces recapture territories captured by militants. On Sunday, U-S forces carried out several airstrikes near Erbil and Mosul.
