Islamic State supporters have already started making predictions on where the terror group will strike next, discussing likely targets in an online forum.

A poll published on al-Minbar, a forum used by extremists, asks: “What will be the color of the Eiffel Tower in the next attacks?” tech news website Vocativ reported.


The poll comes after Paris’ iconic landmark was illuminated with the colors of the Belgian flag on Tuesday in the wake of terrorist attacks that killed 34 in Brussels.

Other cities across the globe paid tribute with their own red, black and yellow light displays at landmarks.

So far, 20 users have replied to the poll, with some casting multiple votes, Vocativ reported.

Nine said the next target will be the United Kingdom, six voted for Russia, three predicted the U.S. and four voted for Germany.

Islamic State supporters posted on the poll’s forum describing the U.S., U.K. and France as “the heads of infidelity.”

A similar poll posted on Twitter asked jihadists “What will be the next attack by the Islamic State?” according to Vocativ. That poll offered Italy, France, the Netherlands and Belgium as options and received 103 responses, but the results were only visible to voters in the poll.
