BEIRUT — The underground Islamic Jihad Organization said today that it will escalate its terror war against the United States in 1986 with more kidnapings and suicide bomb attacks.
The group also threatened action against Israel and Turkey, accusing both nations of being tools of U.S. imperialism in the Middle East.
The threat was in a statement mailed to a Western news agency office in Beirut.
The statement said the decision to escalate the anti-American actions was made at a meeting of the high command of the Islamic Jihad Organization on Nov. 25.
"The terrorist Reagan must know that other American embassies and warships will be blown up like the American Embassy and U.S. Marine headquarters in Beirut," it said.
