WASHINGTON, U.S. - In yet another shocker from ISIS, a group of hackers with links to the brutal terrorist group have released a kill list, that names some 8,786 Americans - including celebrities, politicians, religious leaders, and the biggest of their target - U.S. President Donald Trump. 

The list was released by Pro-ISIS United Cyber Caliphate, formed in April 2016, that even posted a video threatening Trump directly.

The video was tracked down by the world’s leading non-governmental counter-terrorism organisation, the SITE Intelligence Group.

The group said that it is releasing the names and addresses of the people that it wants killed and urged for lone wolf gunman attacks on those on the list. 

This is, however, not the first time that such a kill list has been released by the terrorist group. 

Last year in April, the militant group released names of over 40 Americans with ties to the government. 

A month later, 76 military members were listed in a similar kill list along with New York citizens and 1,543 from Texas.

This is, however, the first time the group has released names along with addresses. 

According to SITE, the group urged lone wolf attacks to “Kill them wherever you find them.”

In its direct message to Trump, the group said, “We have a message to the people of the U.S. and most importantly your President Trump. Know that we continue to wage war against you. Know that your counter attacks only make us stronger. The UCC will start a new step in this war against you. So expect us soon Insha Allah!’

According to reports, 7,848 of the 8,787 people named on the list are Americans. 

The hacking group has said that it will soon publish the home addresses of those involved. 

The militant group has previous featured Donald Trump in its propaganda. 

A video produced by the pro-ISIS group al-Battar earlier showed footage of Trump describing Brussels as a “horror show.”

So far, counter terrorism officials have not substantiated to see whether the threats presented by the group are credible. 

Last year, just days before the Orlando nightclub massacre, former FBI agent-turned-lawyer Stuart Kaplan had warned that “lone wolf” supporters of the Islamic State and other jihadist groups pose an especially difficult danger to the population for police to prevent.

He had stated in an interview then, “Should a sympathizer get hold of a list and can readily able to identify you as being his neighbor and, then, decides to go out and do something horrific to you, there is no way to calculate the potential or to prevent that.”

Recent, ISIS-inspired lone wolf attackers have struck London and Berlin while the recent attack in Russia’s St. Petersburg is yet to be claimed. 

According to reports, ISIS used a secretive messaging site looking for a ‘lone wolf’ terrorist to target London just weeks before the Westminster attack.

The message reportedly included an image of an ISIS fighter resembling Jihadi John wielding a sword in front of Big Ben.
