A new propaganda video from ISIS shows the Las Vegas strips and officials there are treating it as a credible threat. A portion of the new video calls for people to launch lone wolf terror attacks in the United States, using knives or vehicles.

The video shows landmarks in Vegas, such as the Trump International Hotel and other locations on the strip. Police said they are stepping up security as they prepare for the summer holiday weekends

News sites are refusing to show the propaganda videos.

American Jihadist Narrates ISIS Propaganda Video

Trace Gallagher reports:

The video “was narrated by an American jihadist. When he calls on ISIS sympathizers to attack targets in Russia, Europe, and America, it shows video of the Las Vegas strip, including places like the Bellagio Hotel.”

Investigators say they believe the video is from somewhere back in 2015, but they say it would be irresponsible to dismiss the threat, especially in the wake of the Manchester Arena Attack and the fact that Vegas is a big retreat destination.”

“There are thousands of people walking around at any given moment.”

ABC reports:

“In Sin City, it’s the norm to see large crowds at concerts, shows, sports fights, TV and music awards every day. That’s why the recent terror attack in Manchester, England that killed 22 concertgoers and left dozens injured left many tourists and kababayans working on the Las Vegas Strip worried. A video released by the ISIS terrorist group contains shots of famous American landmarks, including the Las Vegas Strip.”

“We are a big city so we are kind of a big target, but I’m not sure,” said Maya Suwanakrit. “The world is crazy now.” “Nakakatakot, cause you don’t know what can happen,” said Marivic Petrovsky. “It can happen anytime. Nobody expected the 9/11 to happen, but it happened.”
