Canada: RCMP Issues Warning To Police And Military After ISIS Issues New Threat
Qur’an Sura 8:59a, “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us …”
Qur’an Sura 58:20, “Those who resist Allah and His Messenger will be among those most humiliated.”
The notice went out Monday. Police and military were told to exercise vigilance and caution upon starting their shifts this week.
Several police forces, including those in Montreal and Quebec City, confirmed the RCMP advisory.
Montreal police sources tell QMI that its force held top-level meetings with the RCMP this week.
The RCMP warning is specifically aimed at police on solo patrols, who have been deemed to be at greatest risk.
Quebec’s Public Security minister, Lise Theriault, said the RCMP advisory follows an earlier threat from ISIS.
In September, ISIS spokesman Muhammad Al-Adnani called on followers to kill Canadians and others by various means including to ‘slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car.’
Theriault told QMI that citizens, as well as police, need to keep their eyes open for threats.
‘I think that vigilance will always be appropriate,’ she said. The minister urged citizens to call police if they believe someone has become radicalized or if they see violent Internet postings.
Two Canadian soldiers were killed by homegrown extremists last week.
