A suspended Twitter account affiliated with the Islamic State allegedly tweeted about the Paris terrorist attacks before they began and said that Rome, London, and possibly Washington, D.C. are next.

An alleged screenshot by Anonymous affiliated @AnonRevolt_ of the suspended user @isis_9966 appears to be a warning to Parisians at 10:34 p.m. Paris time on November 13. The attacks began at 12:48 a.m. on November 14.

The alleged tweet by ISIS also threatened that there would be attacks in London and Rome on November 14 or 15. This was noticed by @VestraPvP.

ISIS affiliated accounts on Twitter claiming the Paris attacks for the Islamic State are using the hashtag “Paris on Fire†in Arabic, the same hashtag ISIS used to celebrate the Charlie Hebdo terror attack.

Tim Ramadan, reporter for Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, states that further hashtags under “Paris on Fire†also include “London on Fire†, “Rome on Fire†, and “Washington on Fire.â€

Whether there is any merit to this is still questionable. However, ISIS has officially claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks.
