In a new video released on Monday, Islamic State warned that countries taking part in air strikes against Syria ‘would suffer the same fate as France’, and threatened to strike Washington, reports Reuters.

“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,” says one of the terrorists in the video.

According to Reuters, it was not immediately possible, though, to verify the authenticity of the video.
