The terrorists group ISIS with crowing English-language message has threatened more attacks as jihadi supporters celebrate the ‘successful’ slaughter of kids
The group fanatics have warned of more “severe” attacks in Britain as they claimed responsibility for the Manchester massacre that has left at least 22 dead.
In a crowing English-language message boasting of the bloody attack, ISIS’ media wing said: “What comes next will be more severe on the worshippers of the Cross and their allies”
It said: “With Allah’s grace a soldier of the Khilafah managed to place explosives in the midst of the gathering of the Crusaders in the British city of Manchester in revenge for Allah’s religion.
Claiming the massacre was “in response to their [the West’s] transgressions against the lands of the Muslims”, ISIS claimed an IED was placed “inside the shameless concert area”.
Supporters of the terror group had earlier gleefully shared propaganda saying the attack that killed 22 and injured 59 others during Ariana Grande’s gig was revenge for Mosul airstrikes.
One extremist shared an image of an explosion with a caption: “Kill him everywhere.”
Another Twitter user, who appeared to be an ISIS supporter, posted an ominous message saying: “We have more #manchesterarena”.

One jihadi shared a shot of injured children, saying: “It seems that bombs of the British airforce over children of Mosul and Raqqa has just came back to Manchester.”
Many of those killed in the Manchester attack are feared to be youngsters watching Ariana, who had just left the stage.
Thousands who had watched the show fled after hearing a “massive bang” with crowds of screaming and crying teens rushing from the venue.
Bomb squads were called in and carried out a precautionary controlled explosion, which was later found to be abandoned clothing.
Cops confirmed the explosion went off in the foyer area of the stadium, injuring dozens of people as they tried to make their way out of the arena.
Shocking pictures and video footage have shown the bloodied injured leaving the 21,000 capacity arena as passers-by rushed to try to help.
It has also emerged that many of those caught up in the blast were injured by shrapnel with the bomber believed to have packed the device full of nails.
Courtney Spencer, a 17-year-old student who was at the concert with a pal, told The Sun: “It happened just in front of us at the top of the stairs. We didn’t know what had happened. It could have been a gun or a bang or an explosion.
“We just grabbed each other and got away. One lass was laying in her mother’s arms. I’m not sure if she has collapsed in shock or was injured.”
Terrified fans who escaped the deadly explosion were left struggling to make it home after nearby Victoria station was evacuated and all trains and trams cancelled.

Kind-hearted strangers rallied to help, with hundreds of Manchester locals offering up places to stay for the night using the #roomformanchester hashtag.
Social media was awash with generous gestures, with some offering free taxi rides and others saying they could provide cups of tea and hugs.
Rachel Ellis tweeted: “If you need a bed, a cup of tea, a charged phone etc. – I’m 15 mins from Manchester Arena. DM me, they’re open! #RoomForManchester”
Sarah Donohoe said: “Double bed & double air bed available at our flat near Piccadilly if anyone affected needs a place to stay #roomformanchester #manchester.”
Hannah S tweeted: “We have a spare room, we are in the city centre, if anyone can’t get home. #manchester #roomformanchester.”
Another said: “Wonderful people of Manchester using #RoomForManchester to help those in need.”
Desperate parents who had not heard from their kids since the concert posted details on social media.
Hospitals were told to expect a “rush” of patients following the horrific attack.
Extra medics were reportedly drafted in at Wythenshawe Hospital to help in the aftermath of the incident.
