ISIS releases hit list of 100 American military personnel

ISIS has posted online what it’s calling a target list with the names and addresses of 100 US military personnel — and calling on “brothers residing in America” to kill them, Pentagon officials said.

The list urges so-called “lone wolves” to track down and kill the personnel.
