ISIS Releases New Video of Fighters Destroying Statues and Threatening Pope (VIDEO)
ISIS released a new video from their Filipino affiliate.
In the video the Islamic State fighters rip up photos of Pope Francis and destroy Christian statues in a Catholic Church.
FOX News reported:
Pope Francis’ top aide said a propaganda video released by Islamic State group militants in the Philippines threatening the pontiff is worrying but notes Vatican security was already at a high level.
Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Holy See’s No. 2 official, said he has seen the video of militants desecrating Christian statues and threatening the pope by saying they’ll come to Rome, as they tear in half photos of him and his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI.
The video was mostly filmed in the Philippines, where ISIS has been clashing with government forces for control of the city of Marawi, MailOnline reported.
In March 2016 Pope Francis said the way to defeat ISIS was “with love.” In response ISIS announced new attacks were on the way.
