The Wahhabi Daesh [Arabic acronym for "ISIS" / "ISIL"] has threatened to attack Iraqi polling stations and voters during parliamentary elections next month.

In a message posted to the Telegram messaging app on Sunday, Daesh spokesman Abu Hassan al-Muhajir called on Sunni Iraqis to boycott the May 12 polls, the first since Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared victory over the militants in December.

Militant groups in Iraq have targeted every election since the 2003 US-led invasion.
