In a statement, the terrorist group warned its troops against going to Europe because of the outbreak of the Covid-19 coronavirus.
Europe is being hit hard by the outbreak of the Covid-19 coronavirus, including France, whose provisional death toll now stands at 127 deaths out of 5,423 confirmed cases of infected persons. And this pandemic, which is affecting more than 150 countries around the world, has come to the attention of the ISIS terrorist group, which has strongly advised its troops not to go to Europe at this time, reported the New York Post.
The jihadists were therefore ordered, through the propaganda bulletin Al-Naba, not to go to Europe for the time being. 'Healthy people must not enter the countries affected by the epidemic, and those who are infected must not leave,' said the statement, which described the spread of the pandemic as a 'punishment from God.'
The coronavirus is also present in the Middle East
As a reminder, the Middle East has not been spared by the coronavirus. Indeed, in Iraq, where most of the ISIS fighters reside, 110 cases of coronavirus contamination have been recorded, including at least 10 deaths.
