Cairo: Islamic State has released a video threatening attacks in Russia “very soon”, the SITE monitoring group said on Thursday.

Al-Hayat Media Center, Islamic State’s foreign language media division, released a Russian language video with chants of “Soon, very soon, the blood will spill like an ocean”, SITE reported.

Islamic State has previously called for attacks on Russia and the United States in revenge for air strikes on its fighters in Syria.

Western intelligence officials suspect the ultra-hardline Sunni group of planting the bomb in the Russian passenger airplane which crashed in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula two weeks ago.

The video was released on November 12, 2015 and is titled “Soon, Very Soon the Blood Will Spill Like an Ocean.” It includes video clips from various, violent ISIS videos previously released overlaid with the jihadi nasheed.
