12 people were killed in the truck attack at the city's busy Christmas market on Breitscheidplatz, next to Berlin’s main shopping street last year.

Now ISIS propaganda has vowed “Berlin will burn”, as jihadis threaten to bring chaos and destruction to the city.

One image, posted to Twitter by ISIS propagandists, shows a heavily armed fighter stood in front of the famous Brandenburg Gate, with the words: “Berlin will burn”.

Another shows an ISIS fighter walking through a church towards Father Christmas and a Christmas tree, along with the words “soon on your holidays” and “soon very soon”.

ISIS has also vowed to attack New York over Christmas. 

One ISIS propaganda shows a church in flames with the words: “Wait for us, we meet at Christmas in New York”.

The fear mongering jihadis have vowed to attack targets in both cities, including at Christmas markets in a chilling repeat of the evil Berlin attack.

Threats have been ramped up in recent weeks, increasing after the failed pipe bomb attack at a New York bus station on Monday.

Christmas markets in Germany have been given extra security following the Berlin attack last year.

This includes concrete barriers to prevent vehicles from slamming into stalls in a repeat of the Breitscheidplatz attack.

There are also armed police officers mingling with crowds at the popular attractions, which bring in swathes of tourists to the country every year.
