ISIS Threats to Iran: "Zoroastrian" Iran Is an Enemy of Islam; We Will Avenge Blood of Muslims in the Region

On Jun 29, 2019, the Islamic State's (ISIS) official Nasher News Telegram channel released a video showing five masked and armed fighters, one of whom reads a short message in Farsi, saying: "Apart from the Islamic State, we do not find anyone who can defend the Muslims and can face these polytheists with a pure and correct ideology. We warn the Zoroastrian [i.e., Iranian] state and its friends: Wait for our actions, not our words."

Abu Mujahid Al-Farsi: "Since its establishment, the Zoroastrian state of Iran has been hostile to the people of Islam and to the monotheists everywhere, and it has joined forces with all enemies of this religion. We can see what it has done in Iraq and Afghanistan with the Crusaders. Through their servants in the Levant, they killed the monotheists and hurt the Muslims. Apart from the Islamic State, we do not find anyone who can defend the Muslims and can face these polytheists with a pure and correct ideology. We warn the Zoroastrian state and its friends: Wait for our actions, not our words. We will avenge the Muslim blood in Khorasan, Iraq, the Levant, Yemen, and elsewhere."
