The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for Friday’s attacks in Paris, capital of France, according to Reuters.

The news agency obtained a video where the group called on its members in France to continue carrying out attacks.

“The location of the fighters in the video was not clear and it was not possible to determine when it was filmed, but the message was unmistakable,” the agency said in a report.

The group’s foreign media arm, Al-Hayat media centre, made threats through several militants.

The militants, who appeared to be French citizens, sat cross-legged in a group wearing fatigues and holding weapons in what appeared to be a wooded area.

The video also showed the militants burning passports.

“As long as you keep bombing you will not live in peace. You will even fear traveling to the market,” said one of the militants, identified as Abu Maryam the Frenchman.

Another militant, identified as Abu Salman the Frenchman, said: “Even poison is available, so poison the water and food of at least one of the enemies of Allah.”

“Terrorise them and do not allow them to sleep due to fear and horror.”

“Indeed you have been ordered to fight the infidel wherever you find him – what are you waiting for? There are weapons and cars available and targets ready to be hit,” said Abu Maryam.

Describing the attacks as unprecedented, after declaring a state of emergency and ordering closure of the country’s borders, President Francois Hollande promised to bring the attackers to justice.

Foreign fighters who join Islamic State, the group which controls large swathes of Iraq and Syria, are seen as especially dangerous because Western passports enable them to live in and travel to Western countries undetected.

About 128 persons lost their lives in the incidents said to be one of the worst attacks in modern history.
