Las Vegas police are stepping up patrols this Memorial Day weekend in the wake of a chilling ISIS threat against the Strip with a terror propaganda video calling for lone wolf car and knife attacks.

'I think anytime somebody goes on the internet and makes a threat that they're going to conduct a lone-wolf or any type of attack, it's our responsibility to view it as a credible threat,' Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Capt. Christopher Darcy, who heads the Southern Nevada Counter-Terrorism Center, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“It would be irresponsible not to take any threat as credible, especially when made by a group such as ISIS, who has in fact carried out attacks in the past,' Darcy said.

Other iconic images appearing in the video include New York’s Time Square and various monuments and buildings throughout Washington DC.

'Know that our war with our enemy is an all out war and the interests of the enemy can be easily targeted,' read English subtitles to the screed in Arabic.

'Make sure they are preoccupied with their own safety, thus diverting their attention away from your Caliphate,' Al-Hassan says.
