ISIS fanatics have vowed to bring bloodshed to the skies with attacks on aircraft.

The latest propaganda was released on pro-ISIS internet platforms with the threat issued in English, French and Arabic.
ISIS was widely believed to have been behind the downing of a Russian tourist jet leaving the Egyptian resort of Sharm el Sheikh in 2015 – killing all 224 people on board.

UK tour operators only resumed flights to the area – that travel over the nation’s Sinai region where ISIS has a foot-hold – this year.
The chilling vow comes as ISIS suffered yet another blow in the Middle East – where it has just three per cent of its captured territories remaining.
Security forces in Iraq have revealed they arrested a senior ISIS propaganda chief who was head of the regime’s radio station. He was captured along with three of his aides to the south of Mosul.
‘Security troops were notified that Islamic State’s Garallah Khairo Habash, who was the head of al-Bayan radio station, was along with three of his companions in al-Azaba village, south of Mosul,’ Cap. Khaled Walid, of Nineveh police command, said.

‘Fake ID cards with names of civil servants were possessed by the members. They were confiscated, while the members were detained at the operations command for investigations,’ he added.
The station went on-air from Mosul in 2015 – a year after the city was captured by ISIS forces.
It broadcasted in a range of languages including Arabic, Russian, Kurdish and English.
The al-Bayan programmes were credited with being ‘highly professional and slickly produced’ and were compared to the BBC for tone and quality.
The station offered a wide range of programming including Koran recitations, speeches, language instruction and interview shows, interspersed with regular news bulletins and war reports from al-Bayan correspondents in Iraq and Syria
Its English-language news bulletins were delivered by an American-accented, male newsreader.
The station went off-air after an air strike in late February 2017 as part of the battle to liberate the city.
Iraqi forces discovered the al-Bayan HQ in March 2017 in an upmarket area of Mosul. ISIS had burnt it down before fleeing.
