IS teen threatens of attack on Britain

London, July 12 (IANS) An Australian boy, who fled his home in Sydney last year to join the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, on Sunday threatened of attacks on Britain, media reported.

Elmir, 18, sent a message to the Daily Mail on Sunday threatening attacks on Britain. Boasting of his “connections” in the country, he warned, “brothers that I know there… are itching to do an attack”.

Dubbed as “Ginger Jihadi” because of his long red hair, Elmir became a poster boy for the IS and he appeared in their many propaganda videos.

“This is a direct threat,” he added.

He bragged that IS would not stop their murderous campaign until their flag flies over Buckingham Palace.

Elmir also confirmed that he married a British teenager, Amira Abase, 16 – who travelled to Syria with her two school friends from East London in February this year.

Elmir also callously mocked the massacre of 38 tourists by an IS-inspired gunman on a beach in Tunisia last month.

Police launched an investigation after the radicalised fighter sent the warning to the newspaper.
