As Christmas looms, ISIS again threatens attack on Pope Francis

A pro-ISIS media group has threatened to attack Pope Francis as Christians around the world gear up to celebrate the birth of Christ.

Al-Abd Al-Faqir made the threat in a new propaganda poster showing a handgun being pointed at the Pope. It carries the slogan ‘Don’t think you are away from our attacks’.

Another poster threatened violence to ‘slaves of the Cross’ and showed a gunman creeping up behind the Pope, PJ Media reports.

Last year, the ISIS-affiliated media group Wafa Media Foundation made a similar threat of violence in the run-up to Christmas when it released a poster showing a man in a balaclava driving towards the Vatican. It was captioned ‘Christmas blood … so wait’.
