A video released by the Islamic State group shows fighters praising last week's deadly attacks in Paris and urging Muslims to carry out similar acts.

A fighter who appears in the video released Monday, which was filmed in the northern Iraqi province of Kirkuk, calls on Muslims all over the world, especially in France, to "intensify their attacks against Crusaders."

Another fighter says "we congratulate the oppressed Muslims worldwide for this sacred act that our brothers carried out against the enemies of religion."

The unidentified fighters say members of the U.S.-led coalition carrying out airstrikes against the Islamic State group "will not enjoy peace and security until Muslims live" safely.

IS claimed the attacks in Paris on Friday that killed 129 people.
