A chilling picture of Argentina star Lionel Messi crying blood from behind bars has been released by pro-ISIS media house in a threat to football fans and players.
The poster which has been discovered by SITE intelligence group was released by Wafa Media Foundation to spread fear ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and it reads: “You are fighting a state that does not have failure in its dictionary.”
Nike’s famous catchphrase, “Just Do It” has also been used changed to “Just Terrorism” on the poster.
This is not the first time the terror outfit has tried to threaten fans before the showpiece event. Earlier, they had released a poster with the logo of the 2018 World Cup and an armed man posing beside it.
ISIS had issued similar threats before 2016 European Championship and the 2017 Women’s European Championships, however, those events went off with out any trouble.
In November 2015, series of bombs exploded outside the Stade de France, while France and Germany friendly game was underway. ISIS had claimed the responsibility for the attack.
The World Cup will kick off June 14 and run through July 15.
