In the video, the suspected Paris attackers are seen carrying out military training, beheadings and execution-style shootings. Parts of the video were reportedly filmed in the Syrian city of Raqqa — the Islamic State’s de facto capital.

The video’s narrator describes the militants as “nine lions of the caliphate who were mobilized from their lairs to make a whole country, France, get down on its knees.”

A narrator in the video makes threats against Britain, stating militants are ready to attack “anytime, anywhere” while images are being shown of London landmarks.

French President Francois Hollande said the video will not stop France from combating terrorism.

“Nothing will deter us, no threat will make France waver in the fight,” Hollande told reporters during an official state visit to India.

At least 130 people died in the Islamic State’s coordinated attacks in Paris. Nine of the suspected 12 militants involved in the attack died either on the day of the attack or in the massive manhunt operation that followed. A manhunt for suspects Salah Abdeslam and Mohamed Abrini continues.
