Isis has called on followers to attack Christians and Jews across  America Europe and Israel this Ramadan.

Delivering the message on Thursday through the Telegram messaging app, Isis spokesperson Abu Hudhayfah al-Ansari called on “lone wolves” to murder Jews and proclaimed that Ramadan marks the month of jihad.

The Mirror reported that Hudhayfah al-Ansari delivered a 41 minute address in which he also celebrated the deadly Moscow terror attack that killed 140 people in Russia last week.

Russia said that 139 people were killed in the deadly attack on Friday, which Isis has claimed responsibility for. The jihadi terror group released a video of the atrocity.

In the latest address Al-Ansari also said that the presence of American troops in Iraq would "lead to more attacks".

The message, which coincides with the 10-year anniversary of the terror group’s declaration of a caliphate in Iraq and Syria, was titled “By Allah, this matter will be made possible.”

Al-Ansari called on “members” in Mozambique to "double attacks" and appealed to militants in the Philippines to "move operations into major cities.”

According to The Mirror, Al-Ansari replaced spokesperson Abu Omar al-Muhajir following his arrest in Tahrir al-Sham.

Speaking in message titled 'And Kill Them Wherever You find Them' on January 4, 2024, Al-Ansari said: “Monotheism is the goal, and jihad is the path…the war with the Jews will not end in a one-state solution or two-state solution, as nationalists believe. It is a religious ideological war that will continue until we kill their antichrist under the banner of the Prophet of Allah… tighten the plans and diversify operations: Blow them up with explosives, burn them with incendiary bombs, shoot them with bullets, slaughter their necks with knives, and run them over with buses."
