ISIS vows to attack Washington next in chilling new video and vows EVERY nation involved in Syrian airstrikes will 'suffer France's fate' as CIA director warns 'this is not a one-off'
Terrifying video footage of a sustained attack on a restaurant during the Paris Massacre can be revealed by the Daily Mail today.
The exclusive images show the merciless savagery of an Islamic State assassin and the extraordinary bravery and survival instincts of his intended victims.
They also show the incredible luck of a young woman who would have died had the terrorist's assault rifle not misfired as he held the weapon over her head, giving her a chance to run away.
Police believe her to be the luckiest person to escape with their life during Friday's psychopathic rampage which left 129 people dead and 99 critically injured.
There is also remarkable footage of a 20 year old waitress who ducked under the bar and wrapped her arms around an older, injured woman as the Islamic State gunman who sprayed the restaurant and its outdoor dining area with bullets.
It is the first time any film has been seen of the mayhem caused inside a property targeted by Islamic State six days ago.

Shocking: Extraordinary video of a sustained attack on a restaurant during the Paris Massacre can be revealed by the Daily Mail today. Three CCTV cameras inside the premises recorded the heart-stopping effect as at least 30 bullets came into the premises from the street, leaving the pizzeria engulfed in a blizzard of dust and splintered glass as terrified diners run for cover behind counters and under tables

The Daily Mail can reveal that the gunman responsible for the attack on the restaurant, which is not being named for security reasons, is believed to be 26-year-old Belgian born Salah Abdeslam
The Daily Mail can reveal that the gunman responsible for the attack on the restaurant, which is not being named for security reasons, is believed to be 26-year-old Belgian born Salah Abdeslam.
The terrorist seen in the footage bears a striking resemblance to Abdeslam, who fled Paris after the attacks and evaded capture after a shocking blunder by police near Franco-Belgian border. He remains at large.
Sources said it was possible a second, as yet unidentified gunman, might have involved in the restaurant attack. He may still be on the run, too.
The pictures come from a chilling collection of CCTV footage, obtained exclusively by the Daily Mail.
Miraculously, none of the diners or staff inside the restaurant died during the attack, which lasted less than a minute, before the gunman is seen climbing into the terrorists' black Seat getaway car.
A man who had just arrived outside the restaurant to collect a pizza was shot in the back and died in the street.
Police are examining the video in their hunt for clues about the identities of the murder gang and to analyse the increasingly violent methods used by Islamic State to carry out mass attacks on innocent civilians.
What is particularly horrifying is the calmness of one of the Islamic State gunmen seen in the film as he stalks the street looking for victims and quits trying to murder a woman cowering under a table outside after his assault rifle malfunctioned.
Two diners suffered minor bullet wounds but nearby another five people, including the man collecting his Pizza, perished in the gun attack. A further eight individuals in the vicinity were seriously injured.
The restaurant is located in Paris's trendy 11th district, which is particularly popular with well-heeled middle class people who work in advertising and the media.
Dozens of flowers have been left outside the restaurant, with harrowing messages to those who lost their lives.
Three CCTV cameras inside the premises recorded the heart-stopping effect as at least 30 bullets came into the premises from the street, leaving the pizzeria engulfed in a blizzard of dust and splintered glass.
Staff ducked behind the bar or made their way upstairs or downstairs to a basement during the commotion.
The injured woman can be seen nursing her arm while a couple hug each other under a table.
The killer, dressed casually in a blue tee shirt, then emerges for the first time and can be seen hunting more victims with his AK47 in hand.
The gunman - who is notably not wearing a suicide vest like the other killers - then disappears for several seconds before emerging at the window of the restaurant.
He can be seen pointing his weapon towards one of two helpless hiding under an outside table. The women, who the Daily Mail has chosen not to name, returned to the scene the following day.
Stared death in the face: The woman heard the gunman's AK-47 go 'click, click, click' as the weapon misfired giving her the chance to escape
THE TIMELINE OF TERROR: Second by second, how the terrifying attack on the Paris cafe unfolded
By Richard Pendlebury
The time is 9.34pm.
It is an unseasonably pleasant evening and some of the restaurant's customers are eating or drinking on the terrace outside. At one table, to the right of the door looking out from the restaurant bar, sits a young woman in a chic trench coat. Her name is Lucille and she is having an al fresco supper with her boyfriend Quentin and another male friend.
At the other table on the left side of the door sit the two twenty-something women. All are regulars.
Inside the pizzeria only two tables are occupied at this hour.
At one, beneath a mirror by the main door, another two women can be seen chatting and laughing over drinks. At another table next to a side door a young couple are eating pizzas. The dark haired man has put his quilted jacket over the back of his chair.
Behind the bar two members of staff chat to each other as they work.
One is Samir, a short, bald headed young barman and waiter. He is folding napkins and placing them on the counter.
The other, washing glasses, is Jasmine, the pizzeria's 20-year-old waitress who will shortly become the heroine of this story.
She is a student and has only been in the job for a month. Jasmine is Parisian-born, but her parents hail from Morocco and Algeria; the same ethnic background as the men who even now are in the street outside and are about to shatter this relaxed and scene in a hail of indiscriminate and murderous gunfire.
Just a normal evening: Waitress Jasmine chats to barman Samir as he folds napkins at La Casa Nostra. Just two tables inside and two on the terrace are occupied
9.34 and 8 secs.
From the CCTV camera above the bar you can see the people at the tables outside chatting animatedly. A man, thought to be Quentin, can be seen through the window of the side door. His head is thrown back in laughter. It is the last moment before the horror engulfs them all.
9.34 and 9secs.
The world explodes. The view in all three tapes is suddenly clouded by flying debris as the first volley of automatic fire rips into the restaurant. There is a maelstrom of shattering glass. In the next few seconds the effect of multiple bullet impacts can be seen on the back wall above the bar, close to the main CCTV camera.
Samir's mouth falls open, he and Jasmine clutch each other and instinctively duck behind their counter, the waitress pushing her colleague's head further into cover.
Almost immediately Samir wriggles away and flees down the stairs to the cellar kitchen, Jasmine is left alone, crouched behind the bar.
One of the women sitting at the table under the mirror stands up and cowers with her face to the wall. Her companion flinches and throws herself to the floor. The young man eating pizza has pulled back his chair and dived under his table. His female companion also disappears from sight.
All hell breaks loose: Without warning, the view is clouded by flying debris as a volley of gunfire rips into the restaurant. Samir and Jasmine dive down behind the bar
The firing is relentless: Pushing Samir's head further down, Jasmine cowers as the fusillade continues. The terrified diners can be seen hunched over their tables
Samir crawls to the top of the staircase and runs down the stairs as Jasmine crouches down for cover below the bar area
9.34 and 15-17secs.
The first fugitive from the bloodbath outside bursts through the restaurant door. It is Lucille and she has been shot through the wrist.
Bent over and holding her arm the terrified young woman runs across the restaurant dining area and throws herself behind the bar.
CCTV footage shows Jasmine immediately begin to comfort the wounded older woman, cradling her head.

She clutches her wound: Shot in the wrist and holding the bleeding injury, she sprints across the restaurant. Samir is gone, having fled down the stairs into the cellar
A woman, who was shot on the wrist, runs into the cafe and shelters herself behind the bar as the gunman goes on a rampage outside
9.34 and 18secs.
Seconds after Lucille, the male friend with whom she and Quentin had been dining comes hurdling over an upturned terrace chair and through the door. He is wearing a double-breasted camel coat and glasses.
More bullets can be seen impacting along its frame as he does so, missing him by inches. He is running for his life; how he has not been hit already, like the other two at his table, is a miracle.
He throws himself headlong onto the floor and huddles in a ball at the foot of the bar, in plain view from the street, before running up the stairs of the cafe.

9.34 and 20secs.
In the top left of the screen of the CCTV camera behind the bar pointing at the main door one can see the first sign of movement of the ISIS killers. It is a male dressed in pale clothes. He does not appear to be wearing body armour or a suicide vest but he is clearly carrying an AK-47 style assault rifle, carried at waist height. One can see the banana shaped magazine silhouetted against a yellow parked car. Unlike everyone else you see in the film he is calm and moving slowly from left to right across the street outside; unpanicked.
9.34 and 22secs.
The gunman turns around and raises the rifle to his shoulder. He has seen something out of shot and is taking aim.
9.34 and 24secs.
There are more flashes and flying debris as another ripple of automatic fire crashes into the pizzeria.
9.34 and 26secs.
The man thought to be Quentin can be seen through the side door raising his head from his hiding place under his table. Where have the gunmen gone? Three seconds later a woman outside can be seen standing up and fleeing up a side street. Quentin follows after her.
9.34 and 27secs.
Jasmine is examining Lucille's wound. She puts her arm around her shoulders to comfort and protect the casualty.

9.34 and 29-30secs.
No doubt realising that the position is no hiding place but a death trap, Quentin and Lucille's friend leap up from the restaurant floor and rush up a spiral staircase to the premises' first floor. He takes the steps two at a time.
As he runs his hands are over his ears. While there is no audio such detail gives a vivid impression of the tremendous noise of the close quarter automatic fire in the street outside.
The young man is a regular and knows the building's layout. That knowledge probably saves his life.
9.34 and 31secs.
The female customer who was cowering under the mirror has slid to the floor and is trying to build a pathetic barricade of furniture and her coat around herself.
For a brief moment you can see her pale, horror stricken face above the table top. She pulls another chair closer.

9.34 and 35secs.
The Islamic State gunman reappears in the top left of the screen. Again he is moving calmly from left to right, as seen from the bar's camera. But this time his intent is clear.
He is coming to the pizzeria and is going to stalk and kill the surviving customers. The next seconds are the most extraordinary record of the whole savage episode. The man is holding his rifle down at his waist as he begins to pick his way among the terrace tables and chairs, under which several customers are still sheltering.
9.34 and 39-41 secs.
The gunman is only a few feet from the open main door and looking directly at the CCTV camera. The tension is almost unbearable. Will he enter the pizzeria and find the four customers, cornered in their hopeless hiding places? And what of Jasmine and Lucille trapped behind the bar? They cannot move now as he would immediately see them. Lucille is tucked in a foetal position. Jasmine is talking to her and stroking her head. She is very cool.
A killer appears outside: First sight of the gunman (ringed), dressed causally in a blue T-shirt. He carries an AK-47 and does not appear to be wearing body armour. He is only a few feet from the open main door and looking directly at the CCTV camera. The tension is almost unbearable
9.34 and 41secs.
The gunman slows and stops. He looks left and right. He is framed by the open door. But he has seen something that causes him to halt. It is the two young women hiding under the table.
9.34 and 42-44secs.
The gunman turned through 90 degrees. His AK-47 is lifted to his shoulder and the barrel is aimed downwards at something or someone who is obscured by the wooden door frame. In fact the gun is inches from the head of a 40-year-old woman who had come for a pizza and a glass of vin blanc. Face down, she can only see a pair of shoes.
She does not know who they belong to but does not dare lift her face to properly look. The CCTV footage shows the gunman take two steps forward and aim again. The woman hears what she later described as a click, click, click sound. She does not realise at that moment when her life hangs by a thread that it is the sound of her would-be executioner's weapon either misfiring or out of ammunition.
His AK-47 is lifted to his shoulder and the barrel is aimed downwards, inches from the head of a 40-year-old woman who had come for a pizza and a glass of vin blanc. But the gun misfires, sparing her life
9.34 and 45-47secs.
Suddenly the gunman looks away, into the street. His rifle is swung up. Perhaps a colleague has called out to him because he begins to walk away from the door.
There is another flash on the CCTV footage which suggests a bullet or ricochet from another shooter has entered the restaurant. Jasmine risks crawling to the end of the bar and peeking round. She then crawls back to Lucille.

9.34 and 48-50secs.
Now another incredible moment. The CCTV footage shows first one then the other of the two female friends who had been sitting ducks at the feet of the jihadi on the terrace, emerge from under their 'hiding' places. The first woman straightens, turns to look to see if the coast is clear, picks up her bag and runs. A few seconds later, the other woman does the same.

9.34 and 58secs.
The CCTV shows the headlights of an approaching car. It is the black SEAT hatchback which belongs to the IS team. It has picked up at least one gunman and is about to take them to their next target.
The SEAT passes the pizzeria and can be seen through the window of the side door. Exactly 51 seconds have elapsed since the first bullets were fired. The immediate danger is over but the survivors do not know it.
9.35 and 2secs.
One of the women under the mirror tentatively raises her head to see if it is safe.
9.35 and 6secs.
Jasmine and Lucille take their chance and scuttle from behind the bar and down the stairs to the cellar.
There is then nearly 15 seconds of stillness, both in the street and outside. It is extraordinarily eerie; a moment of muttered prayers, racing hearts and listening for any sound that might indicate the proximity of the jihadis. The firing has stopped but is this just a lull or the end of the massacre? Watching the footage, we know that people only a few feet away outside are either dead or dying, unattended.
9.35 and 27secs.
Now, another extraordinary moment. A man can be seen through the window of the side door. He looks into the pizzeria and keeps walking. Now he is approaching the main door. He comes inside. It is Quentin and he is looking for Lucille. He does not yet realise he is wounded in the arm but he has returned to face the gunman and rescue his girlfriend, whom he thinks they might have kidnapped. He walks with purpose, he is very brave. He is only slightly injured because a metal framed menu stand stopped four of the bullets aimed at their table.
9.35 and 36secs-9.37pm.
First Quentin looks in the cellar, where he will find his girlfriend. He emerges with Samir, who looks horror stricken. The barman gives a little jump of anguish and helpnessness when he sees what has happened to his restaurant. Quentin then goes upstairs and finds his friend. The men then begin to help the four customers who have been hiding in the main restaurant. They are led to safety in the cellar, where Lucille and Jasmine remain.
Samir is scurrying about while typing into his phone to call for help. He holds the phone up to his ear as we walks out of the premises. A man, wearing a cap and holding and Adidas bag comes into the cafe, puts the back on the ground and runs out onto the street. While the man was in the cafe, two people can be seen running up the street. After he leaves another person runs sprints away, before a man in a dark jacket walks more calmly past the restaurant.
Their ordeal is over.

ISIS Slaves Share Their Stories (RT Documentary)
Isis has issued a chilling new video warning that countries taking part in air strikes against Syria would suffer the same fate as Paris and claimed they will attack Washington D.C. next.
The specific threat against the US capital emerged as CIA director John Brennan warned that more atrocities will be committed against the West by the Islamist terror group.
In the film an armed fighter addresses the camera to say in Arabic: 'We say to the states that take part in the crusader campaign that, by God, you will have a day God willing, like France's and by God, as we struck France in the centre of its abode in Paris, then we swear that we will strike America at its centre in Washington.
ISIS has already claimed responsibility for the coordinated terror attacks in Paris which killed at least 132 people.

Militants threatened an attack on the US capital Washington in the video which emerged as France paused for a minute's silence to remember victims of Friday's massacre
Warning: The film appeared on a site used by ISIS to post its messages and begins with news footage of the aftermath of Friday's Paris shootings
The video emerged as CIA Director Brennan told the Center for Strategic and International Studies' annual Global Security Forum on Monday that he hoped the attacks were a wake-up call for security services and warned that ISIS will attempt more terror atrocities.
'I would anticipate that this is not the only operation that ISIS has in the pipeline.'
This comes as thousands lined the streets of Paris for a minute's silence to remember those killed in a wave of attacks which included suicide bombs at the Stade de France, a massacre at the Bataclan theatre and mass shootings at bars and restaurants across the city.
The film, which appeared on a site used by ISIS to post its messages, begins with news footage of the aftermath of Friday's Paris shootings.
A message to countries involved in what it called the 'crusader campaign' was delivered by a man dressed in fatigues and a turban, and identified in subtitles as Al Ghareeb the Algerian.
It was not immediately possible to verify the authenticity of the video, which purports to be the work of ISIS fighters in the Iraqi province of Salahuddine, north of Baghdad.
The video was released by a group which dubs itself 'Wilayah Kirkuk' or 'State of Kirkuk' -- a city in north Iraq which is currently under ISIS control.
'Al Ghareeb the Algerian' also warned Europe in the video that more attacks were coming.
'I say to the European countries that we are coming, coming with booby traps and explosives, coming with explosive belts and (gun) silencers and you will be unable to stop us because today we are much stronger than before,' he said.

Apparently referring to international talks to end the Syrian war, another man identified in the video as Al Karrar the Iraqi tells French President Francois Hollande 'we have decided to negotiate with you in the trenches and not in the hotels.'
An earlier statement released by the extremist group said it masterminded the horrifying attacks on the French capital in revenge for 'insulting' the prophet Muhammad.
The terror group singled out France for its involvement in the bombing campaign against ISIS territory in Iraq and Syria and said it murdered French citizens because the nation 'boasted' about its military contribution.
The statement, released on Saturday morning as horror continued to mount at the slew of killings, said the bombing attack on the Stade de France was aimed specifically at French President Francois Hollande.
At least 129 people are dead, and another 352 injured, after three teams of jihadis struck the Stade de France football stadium, a handful of bars and cafes, and then finally the Bataclan concert hall.

SIXTH ATTACK: BATACLAN MUSIC HALL
SEVENTH ATTACK: NEAR STADE DE FRANCE

It said an attack at the Bataclan Theatre, during a rock concert, was aimed at 'idolaters' who were 'together in a party of perversity' and said the French are ISIS's 'principal targets'.
The statement, in French and Arabic, condemned France, saying they are at risk 'as long as they dare to insult our Prophet, and as long as they boast about their war against Islam in France and their strikes against Muslims in the lands of the Caliphate with their jets, which were of no avail to them in the filthy streets and alleys of Paris'.
Explaining its targets, the statement said: 'eight brothers equipped with explosive belts and assault rifles attacked precisely chosen targets in the centre of the capital of France.
'These targets included the Stade de France stadium during a soccer match - between the teams of Germany and France, both of which are crusader nations - attended by the imbecile of France (Francois Hollande).
'The targets included the Bataclan theatre for exhibitions, where hundreds of idolaters gathered for a concert of prostitution and vice. There were also simultaneous attacks in the tenth, eleventh and eighteenth districts, and elsewhere.

The worst terror attack in French history comes less than 11 months after jihadists struck satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket, killing 17.
After Hollande promised a 'merciless' response to the attacks, French jets hit an IS command post, a recruitment centre, a munitions depot and a 'terrorist' training camp in Raqa late Sunday, the defence ministry said.
The operation was coordinated with US forces by a dozen aircraft which took off from Jordan and the United Arab Emirates.
ISIS claimed it had attacked Paris in revenge for the French campaign of air strikes in Syria and threatened further violence in France 'as long as it continues its Crusader campaign'.
The prime minister said authorities have so far identified 103 of the dead, who included journalists, lawyers, students, parents of small children. Most are under 40.
'In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Beneficent.
Allah said: They thought that their fortresses would protect them from Allah, but Allah came upon them from where they had no expected, and He cast terror into their hearts so they destroyed their houses by their own hands and the hands of the believers. So take warning, O people of vision.
In a blessed battle whose causes of success were enabled by Allah, a group of believers from the soldiers of the Caliphate (may Allah strengthen and support it) set out targeting the capital of prostitution and vice, the lead carrier of the cross in Europe - Paris.
This group of believers were youth who divorced the worldly life and advanced towards their enemy hoping to be killed for Allah's sake, doing so in support of His religion, His Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) and His allies. They did so in spite of His enemies.
Thus, they were truthful with Allah - we consider them so - and Allah granted victory upon their hands and cast terror into the hearts of the crusaders in their very own homeland.
And so eight brothers equipped with explosive belts and assault rifles attacked precisely chosen targets in the centre of the capital of France. These targets included the Stade de France stadium during a soccer match - between the teams of Germany and France, both of which are crusader nations - attended by the imbecile of France (Francois Hollande).
The targets included the Bataclan theatre for exhibitions, where hundreds of idolaters gathered for a concert of prostitution and vice. There were also simultaneous attacks in the tenth, eleventh and eighteenth districts, and elsewhere.
Paris was thereby shaken beneath the crusaders' feet, who were constricted by its streets. The result of the attacks was the deaths of no less than two hundred crusaders and the wounding of even more. All praise, grace and favour belong to Allah.
Allah blessed our brothers and granted them what they desired. They detonated their explosive belts in the masses of the disbelievers after finishing all their ammunition. We ask Allah to accept them amongst the martyrs and to allow us to follow them.
Let France and all nations following its path know that they will continue to be at the top of the target list for the Islamic State and that the scent of death will not leave their nostrils as long as they partake in the crusader campaign, as long as they dare to insult our Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him), and as long as they boast about their war against Islam in France and their strikes against Muslims in the lands of the Caliphate with their jets, which were of no avail to them in the filthy streets and alleys of Paris.
Indeed, this is just the beginning. It is also a warning for any who wish to take heed.
Allah is the greatest.'
More than 25 foreigners from over a dozen countries were among the victims.
The first attacker to be named by investigators was Omar Ismail Mostefai, a 29-year-old French citizen, who was identified from a severed finger found among the carnage at the Bataclan.
Meanwhile, the discovery of a Syrian passport near the body of one suicide attacker has raised fears that some of the assailants might have entered Europe as part of the huge influx of people fleeing Syria's civil war.
Greek and Serbian authorities have confirmed the passport was issued to a man who registered as a refugee in October on the island of Leros and applied for asylum in Serbia a few days later.
World leaders on Sunday denounced terrorism at a heavily guarded G20 summit in Turkey and observed a minute's silence for those killed.
