The terrorist Islamic State says a terror attack against Russia is coming “very soon.”

The threat comes after Russia started carrying out airstrikes in Syria.

The ISIS foriegn language media division released a Russian langugage video that included chants saying: “Soon, very soon, the blood will spill like an ocean.”

“The kafir throats will tremble from the knives. We will make your wives concubines and make your children our slaves,” it added, according to the terror monitoring group SITE.

“Europe is shaking, Russia is dying. The Kremlin will be ours.”

The group previously called for attacks from supporters on Russia and the United States in retaliation for airstrikes on its fighters in Syria.

And a number of Western officials believe the group was behind the downing of the Russian passenger plane in Egypt several weeks ago, killing 224 people. The group claimed responsibility for the attack, though there’s been debate whether it was truly behind it.

Just last week, the Russian government said its special forces prevented a terror attack in the south after uncovering a huge bomb hidden on the side of the road.

The government said it killed those behind the prevented attack, including ISIS militants Aslan Byutukaev and Beslan Mahauri.

According to various reports, Russia’s entrance into the fight against ISIS has greatly boosted countries fighting against the terrorists, which include the United States.
