In the new video published on an ISIS-linked jihadi forum, one of two fighters threatened U.S. and French presidents Barack Obama and Francois Hollande with more attacks similar to the Paris massacre, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, Fox News reported.

"We will fry you with [suicide] belts and explosives," the fighter said.

The second fighter addressed France, saying, "You not prosper and you will not last long. We have started by you and we will end at the so-called White House which we will turn into black with our fires."

It was the second ISIS video in 24 hours threatening the U.S. A separate video that included previous footage of a simulated attack on New York City emerged on Wednesday.

The FBI responded, "While there is no specific articulable threat to the city at this time, the FBI NY Joint Terrorism Task Force continues to vigilantly work with NYPD and our other law enforcement partners to keep our community safe and fully investigate any threat information."
