ICC Note: Leaflets in Jerusalem are threatening the Christians in the city of a massacre. Signed by ISIS, the leaflets warn Christians to leave the city by Eid al-Fitr, the final day of Ramadan on July 19th. ISIS does not have a known operational presence in Israel but Arabs in the area have been influenced by their radical beliefs. While suspicion remains as to the legitimacy of the leaflets, Israelis expected to increase security in the area.
Militants from the Islamic State (IS) group are threatening to massacre Christians in Jerusalem, according to leaflets distributed in Israel’s capital.
Signed “Islamic State, Jerusalem Emirate,” the leaflet says IS knows where most Christians in Jerusalem live, and warns they have until Eid al-Fitr – the festival marking the end of Ramadan on July 19th – to leave the city or be killed, several Israeli media reported.
Israel’s Arutz Sheva news service said IS does not have an operational presence in Israel, though support for the group “has been growing” among Arabs.
Several Christian groups, ranging from the pro-Israel ‘International Christian Embassy Jerusalem’ (ICEJ) to the global television network GOD TV have offices in Jerusalem.
Security was expected to be increased in a nation already on edge following several terror attacks in recent years.…
Pray that God will frustrate their effort.
