ISIS supporters have threatened fresh attacks on the West in chilling propaganda posters showing attacks on London, New York and San Francisco.

The mocked-up images show the Palace of Westminster on fire in Britain and a terrorist wearing a suicide bomb in Manhattan.

They were shared on ISIS-linked media channels and obtained by the Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors jihadist content.

In one poster, the murderous jihadists urge their followers to ‘kill them all’ and ‘slit their throats [and] watch them die’.

The words are imposed on an image of an ISIS supporter waving the terror group’s black flag in the streets of San Francisco.

Another threatening image promises to ‘destroy the kuffar’ – an Arabic term for non-Muslims or infidels.

‘Through our blood comes our success and we will give it our best to destroy the kuffar – we will slaughter them all,’ the message reads.

The words caption an image of a suicide bomb-wearing terrorist next to what appears to be one of New York City’s trademark yellow taxis.

ISIS was forced out of its last holdout in Syria in March but security chiefs have warned the terror group and its devotees still pose a threat to the West.

Earlier this month ISIS backers released a chilling online poster showing a blazing fire ripping through a crumbling Houses of Parliament.

A hooded figure armed with a pistol was shown lurking nearby, seemingly poised to carry out a further killing spree.

The terror group also seized gleefully on Europe’s widespread horror at the Notre Dame fire in April, sharing a menacing image of the towers burning once again.

The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces declared a ‘total elimination’ of ISIS forces in Syria earlier this year after flushing out the last fanatics in their Baghouz holdout.

The fall of Baghouz marked the militants’ territorial defeat and the end of their self-declared Islamic caliphate over parts of Syria and Iraq.

However, security chiefs believe the terror group and its followers could still carry out attacks.

Britain’s government warns that ISIS ‘continues to threaten the UK and our allies with its network of terrorist affiliates’.

ISIS has previously claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks in 2015 among other attacks in Europe, and its supporters were linked to the wave of terror in the UK in 2017.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, ISIS’s reclusive leader, appeared to resurface for the first time in five years in a video released by the extremist group in April.

The video purported to show him talking about the Easter Sunday suicide bombings that killed more than 250 people in Sri Lanka.

Nicknamed ‘The Ghost’, he had not appeared in public since he delivered a sermon at a Mosul mosque in 2014 declaring himself ‘caliph’.

Raffaello Pantucci of RUSI, a defence think tank, warned earlier this year that the territorial defeat of ISIS was not the end and that and the ‘biggest danger’ was stepping back.

‘I think the danger is that we end up doing what happened in Iraq in 2009 – we just kind of left and left the whole place to its own devices,’ he said.

‘And essentially it didn’t get better, the governance continued to be a problem and that is how the environment was created for the group to grow in to.’
