ISIS reportedly released another video Monday threatening to attack the countries currently taking part in air strikes against Syria, adding that it will specifically target Washington, D.C.

We say to the states that take part in the crusader campaign that, by God, you will have a day, God willing, like France’s and by God, as we struck France in the center of its abode in Paris, then we swear that we will strike America at its center in Washington,” said a man in a turban and fatigues in the latest slick, stylized propaganda video from the extremist group.

The man, identified in the footage as “Al Ghareeb the Algerian,” added, “I say to the European countries that we are coming, coming with booby traps and explosives, coming with explosive belts and silencers and you will be unable to stop us because today we are much stronger than before.”

Currently, the Department of Homeland Security has not received any indication of a potential attack, with a DHS spokesperson telling Reuters, “While we take all threats seriously, we do not have specific credible information of an attack on the U.S. homeland.” A U.S. official told NBC News that the video has not been authenticated, but “it looks like a typical propaganda video, and it’s getting attention now because ISIS has been in the news.”
