A tweet has been discovered allegedly sent by an ISIL-linked terror group warning ‘Christians’ not to plan a holiday in Tunisia.
The tweet reads: “To the Christians planning their summer vacations in Tunisia, we cant accept u in our land while your jets keep killing our Muslim Brothers in Iraq & Sham (sic).
And continues: “But if u insist on coming then beware because we are planning for u something that will make you forget #Bardoattack.”

It is said that the tweet was aimed at people from countries taking part in the coalition against Isil in both Iraq and Syria.
And when you add the fact that the attacker, Seifeddine Rezgui, told Tunisian locals to get out of the way while hunting down British and French holidaymakers, it all seems to add up. Britain and France are both in said coalition.
The twitter account in question has been identified as the media-arm of extremist umbrella group Ansar al-Sharia in Kairouan, Tunisia, which is where Rezgui reportedly studied.
