    The Daesh jihadist group has released a video threatening new attacks in Europe, particularly in Spain, local media reported.

    MADRID (Sputnik) — The militants posted online a six-minute video, featuring the footage of an antique map of the Iberian Peninsula slowly turning to red and an off-screen voice saying "We will recover our land from the invaders," Spanish newspaper La Gaceta reported Thursday.

    This is not the first time a jihadist group threatens to attack Spain.

    Earlier in January, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) terror group released a video featuring a militant threatening to carry out attacks in the Spanish capital of Madrid, as well as Naples and Rome in Italy.

    A few days ago, AQIM posted another video in which it threatened to annex two Spanish enclaves in North Africa, Ceuta and Melilla.
