New IS video: Teen Australian fighter threatens to hoist 'black flag' atop White House

Canberra: Continuing its practice of threatening the Western countries by sending audacious messages in videos, the barbaric extremist group of Islamic State has made online a fresh video, in which an Aussie IS fighter has directly trained its guns on US, UK and Australia.

In the 4th episode of the IS series named “Message of the Mujahid”, an Australian fighter said to be a teenager, appears in the video and is directly addresses the people and the leaders of America, Britain and “especially Australia”, vowing not to put down the weapons, reported SITE monitoring group.

The IS fighter called Abu Khaled al-Australi, speaking in English, says how the Islamic State wasn't afraid of fighting the US-led coalition, daring the Western countries to rope in thousands of other nations. "Bring every nation that you want to come and fight us. It means nothing to us. Whether it's 50 nations or 50,000 nations, it means nothing to us," Site quoted the 17-year-old Aus fighter.

He then went on to directly address US President Barack Obama, UK PM David Cameron and Aus PM Tony Abbott, and threatened that the Islamic State would not rest until they saw black flag of the IS flying high atop the White House and Buckingham Palace.

"To Tony Abbott, I say this. These weapons that we have, these soldiers, we will not stop fighting," said the Australian fighter, who is said to have fled his home in Sydney's Bankstown in June.

“These weapons we have, these soldiers, we will not stop fighting, we will not put down our weapons until we reach your lands, until we take the head of every tyrant, and until the black flag is flying high in every, single land, until we put the black flag on top of Buckingham Palace, until we put the black flag on top of the White House,” the fighter said in video.

Reacting on the video, Australia said it reflects how grave is the threat posed by the IS (also referred to as the ISIL).

"As the Prime Minister has said on many occasions, ISIL is a threat that reaches out to Australia and our allies and partners," the AFP quoted Tony Abbott's spokesman as saying.

"That is why Australia has joined the coalition to disrupt and degrade ISIL in Iraq and is giving our law enforcement and security agencies the powers and resources they need to keep Australia and Australians as safe as possible."

Several foreign fighters have join the IS ranks and are fighting alonside them in Iraq and Syria.

In June Australia's Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said that some 150 Australians had gone overseas to fight with extremists in Iraq and Syria.
