The Islamic State militant group has issued a chilling message in a video, titled ‘We will drown you in blood’, that was released on social media 

The group formerly known as ISIS has warned that it will attack Americans anywhere in response to US attacks on them. Through the video, Islamic State also released a photograph of an American who was beheaded during the US occupation of Iraq.

With US carrying out air strikes in Iraq, reports in the US suggest that Isis is now seen as a greater threat to America than Al Qaeda was before the September 11, 2001 attacks.

“Every day that goes by, ISIS ... becomes a direct threat to the United States of America. They are more powerful now than al Qaeda was on 9/11," Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday.
