ISIS followers have been sending threatening Twitter messages and gruesome photos to America and its supporters, warning of retaliation over U.S. airstrikes in Iraq.
It began after President Obama approved airstrikes in Iraq aimed at Islamist terrorist groups on Friday morning, August 8.
The Islamist militants fighting for ISIS used the hashtag #AmessagefromISIStoUS with their tweets.
Some of the disturbing images included with the tweets were of the twin towers in flames on September 11, 2001, U.S. marines hung from bridges in Fallujah, decapitated men, and human heads on spikes, reports The Daily Mail.

Many of the images were of Allied soldiers injured or dead from previous fighting.
“This is a message for every American citizen,” read one sent Twitter message. “You are the target of every Muslim in the world wherever you are.”
In another tweet ISIS warned that it is “ready to cut your heads Dear Americans O sons of bitches. Come quickly.”

The hashtag #WarOnWhites was included with that tweet, along with #AmessagefromISIStoUS.
There were more than 14,000 messages sent.
It is not the first time the terrorist group has used social media to share their propaganda and provoke fear among their enemies. They have in the past posted images of beheadings and other acts of voilence through social media channels.
Americans and Brits did not take the onslaught from ISIS supporters without fighting back.
"There will only be one winner. U-S-A, U-S-A,” one tweeted.
"#AmessagefromISIStoUS just like Bin Laden, your fat Rolez-wearing Al Baghdadi will end his days cowering before an American muzzle #isis,” former conservative MP Louise Mensch tweeted.
A source from the White House told the Mirror: “President Obama is fully aware of the consequences of military action against the ISIS in Iraq but he was not prepared to stand by any longer and watch American personnel and thousands of innocent people placed in danger.
“He is prepared that they may be consequences and is constantly being briefed on developments."
