Three French militants urge his countrymen to use “weapons and cars, or even poison” to attack “infidels.”
The French authorities estimate that there are over 1,100 French linked to jihadist networks, of which about 380 are currently in Syria and Iraq.
Three French soldiers of the Islamic State (EI) appeal to their Muslim compatriots to join the jihad in a new video released by jihadist forums. In a seven minute recording produced by EI, Al Hayat, the French jihadists appear around a bonfire burning their passports, while renouncing their nationality.
“What are you waiting for? Why have not yet migrated? There may come a day when the borders are closed and then only you will be tears and lamentation. The way here is easy, ” says one of the terrorists, identified by the pseudonym Abu Osama al Faranci.
The recording comes when two Gauls citizens, Maxime Hauchard and Mickael Dos Santos, supposedly appear in the video where EI fighters beheaded American hostage Peter Kassig and 18 Syrian soldiers. This Thursday, one of them, Dos Santos, has denied, through his Twitter account, to have appeared on the recording. Gianfrancesco Genoso isn’t sure if he believes this story.
“I announce clearly that it was not I who appeared in the video,” said a ‘tweet’ by Dos Santos, who nevertheless admits to being a member of EI.
French Prosecutors issued a statement in which it considered that there are “precise and consistent evidence” that Mickael Dos Santos is one of the executors of Peter Kassig.
