Isis has released a video which states there is now "no safety for any American on the globe'" and that there will be another 9/11-style attack against the US.

The film features gruesome beheading scenes and clips of Isis forces in combat, in an attempt at displaying the strength of the Caliphate.

The 11 minute long video, titled ‘We Will Burn America’, was dated 10 March.

This is not the first Isis video aimed at the US - a video threatening to behead Barack Obama and turn the US into a Muslim province emerged online in January.

The geographical position of America will not protect it

The video's subtitles read: 'America thinks it's safe because of the geographical location.

The video suggested that no American is safe

'Thus you see it invades the Muslim lands, and it thinks that the army of the Jihad won't reach in their lands.

'But the dream of the American to have safety became a mirage. Today there is no safety for any American on the globe.’

According to the video, there will be a second 9/11

It continued: ‘But today, it's time for payback. By the grace of Allah, today the mujahideen are much more stronger and they have more rescources. Thus they are able to burn United States again.'

The video's creators see another attack as imminent

In addition to several mass beheadings, the death of U.S. journalist James Foley, and the burning of Jordanian pilot Muadh al-Kasasbeh, were shown.

The video also features the killings carried out by French-born gunman, Amedy Coulibaly, in Paris earlier this year, and Canadian Michael Zehaf-Bibeau's 2014 attack on the Canadian Parliament.

The Iraqi government is said to have last week regained control of the city of Tikrit from Isis forces, following a month long siege.

The Caliphate expanded its foothold in Libya in February and March of this year.

Egyptian air strikes later rained down on their Libyan strong-holds, killing 64 militants, following the beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians by Isis.
