Islamic State terrorists sent a blunt warning to the United States via video, threatening to fill the streets with blood if White House-inspired airstrikes are successful and disrupt their raids.

Specifically, the video showed a photograph of an American who was beheaded while U.S. soldiers occupied Iraq, along with other victims, along with the English statement: “We will drown all of you in blood.”

The video message also vowed to attack Americans “in any place,” The Times of India reported.

The United States has been conducting more than 30 air attacks over Iraq aimed at helping Iraqi and Kurdish forces fend off the terrorists. The latest airstrikes helped Kurds recapture Mosul dam, a key property that provides much of Iraq’s electricity and power — and a terrorist-held facility for nearly two weeks.

The Islamic State is trying to declare a caliphate and instill Sharia law, and has so far taken over larges swaths of lands in Iraq and Syria.
