Islamic State extremists have released a threat targeting 4-year-old Prince George. The terrorist organisation published a photo on instant messaging app Telegram of Britain’s king-to-be entering school, accompanied by a dark message.
“Even the royal family will not be left alone”, the image was captioned, alongside the address of the school in Battersea, South London and the words “school starts early,” The Daily Mail reports.
The message also featured Arabic text from a jihadi song, which translates to: “When war comes with the melody of bullets, we descend on disbelief, desiring retaliation.”
The private school is now working with leading security agencies to ensure the premises is secure.
The royal family has previously received threats from ISIS, with a Prince Harry being challenged to a fight just last month by ISIS militant Abu Uqayl. Similarly, in 2015, the Queen herself was threatened prior to commemorations for World War II’s 70th anniversary.
