NEW DELHI: After French President Francois Hollande accused the ISIS of waging an ‘act of war’, the terror outfit came out and issued a warning saying the Paris attack was just the ‘first of the storm’ that was heading towards France.

According to reports, ISIS claimed responsibly for the cold-blooded series of attacks in Paris in an audio statement released online in multiple languages, saying the ‘blessed’ attacks by the ‘soldiers’ had targeted the ‘capital of prostitution and obscenity, the carrier of the banner of the cross in Europe.’

The statement added that the deadly attack was the ‘first of the storm and should be a warning to those who wish to learn’.

“Let France and those who walk in its path know that they will remain on the top of the list of targets of the Islamic State,” the terror outfit said in their statement.

Earlier, Hollande held the ISIS responsible and vowed to lead a ‘merciless’ retaliation against them.

"Paris attacks were an act of war by Islamic State jihadists. The attacks were carried out by eight gunmen and suicide bombers and were planned and organised from abroad with help from inside France. France is strong and even if she is wounded, she will always get up," the President addressed the nation in his second statement of the day.

In an attack that is being touted as the deadliest of its kind that France has faced since World War II which has left the nation reeling from grief after 129 Parisians were killed, Hollande in a strong message earlier, swore to the country that he intends to take revenge on those who committed the 'barbaric' act.
