'We will be coming, we will come to crush your country': Homegrown French ISIS fighters issue threat of new attacks on France

By Sam Tonkin and Brendan Cole For Mailonline

Homegrown French ISIS fighters have issued a chilling threat of new attacks on France just 24 hours after the terrorist group used movie footage of the Eiffel Tower's collapse in another video.

A balaclava-clad militant is seen warning 'we will be coming, we will come to crush your country' in footage posted on Twitter earlier today.

It is unclear where the film was shot, but the man tells the camera: 'Hey you, François [Hollande], you declared a war that you cannot win, you will not be able to win, you promise victory for your people that is for the people of the West.

'[But] the victory has been promised to us by our creator, by our Lord.'

Prior to that he says: 'This is something that you do not want to happen. We will be coming, we will come to crush your country.'

Yesterday ISIS released a video showing the Eiffel Tower crumbling, although the footage was taken from a 2009 action movie.

In a video called 'Paris has Collapsed' ISIS members promised more attacks on the French capital like the one this month that killed 130 and injured hundreds.

Interspersed between scenes of French forces bombing the group in Syria and images from the November 13 is a clip of the Eiffel Tower falling.

The computer-generated footage has high production value, though it was revealed that the section of video was stolen from GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

In the past week videos have also been released threatening attacks on New York City and the US capital Washington DC.

One featured shots of yellow taxis and crowds in Times Square and Herald Square in Manhattan, with vibrant French music playing in the background.

It then cut to a man wrapping a bomb around his waist before walking into the crowds and pulling the trigger.

A day later, in separate footage, ISIS terrorists threatened to destroy the White House.

Speaking in the footage, a jihadi with a long beard and dressed in a headdress and robe worn by many ISIS fighters, warns: 'We started with [Paris] and we shall finish with the false White House.'
