The Islamic State has released a new video which praises Omar Mateen and specifically threatens Las Vegas and San Francisco with video of the area.

The video of San Francisco shows footage shot from a car driving across the Golden Gate Bridge and also shows camera footage of different locations around the city, including the financial district, panning back and forth as if showing the innocent targets oblivious being filmed by terrorists.

The Las Vegas video shows clips shot from the Vegas strip.  

The video also shows footage of Omar Mateen and the aftermath of his Orlando attack.  Praise for various Paris attacks is shown as well.  

The film ends with scenes of President Obama and French President Francois Hollande in the aftermath of recent terrorist attacks with blood and fire in the background.  

Retired military member Scott Mann now runs a counterterror non-profit. “They should be concerned because ISIS is not about just spewing things out, Al-Qaeda isn’t either, but when ISIS tells you they’re going to do something, they typically do it, they don’t mince words,” he said, reports ABC News.
