Jihadists linked to ISIS have once again shared a threatening image of Notre Dame in flames and warn: & # 39; Wait for the next & # 39 ;.
The extremist media group published the image with flames in front of the bell towers of the Paris Cathedral, which survived the glow of Monday.
There are no indications that the fire was associated with terror, but ISIS fanatics enjoyed the damage to the 850-year-old landmark, a symbol of Western civilization, just days before Easter.
The latest image, revealed by terror monitors, SITE intelligence, indicates a possible intentional attack by ISIS-targeted militants in the future.

While the church was burning Monday evening, the ISIS-linked Al-Muntasir group had published a poster of the burning cathedral with the words: & # 39; Have a nice day & # 39 ;.
Al-Munatsir has previously shared propaganda with joy in terrorist attacks that have shaken France.

The Paris public prosecutor said it treated the fire as an accident, excluding arson and possible terrorist motives, at least for the time being.
Notre Dame was previously the site of a terrorist attack in 2016 when a car with seven gas cylinders was found near the cathedral.
Three women were arrested over the alleged terrain lock, although they were probably aimed at a train station in Paris instead of the cathedral itself.
Fifty researchers are now working on a & # 39; long & # 39; and & # 39; complex & # 39; investigating the case, the Paris prosecutor, Remy Heitz, told reporters.
A judicial officer in Paris said investigators interviewed about 30 people after the fire in Notre Dame.
He said most of them were employees working on the renovation of the monument, including the now-collapsed steeple.
No fewer than 50 researchers are working on the case, but are not yet allowed to enter the cathedral for security reasons, he said.
The tragedy caused a flood of support internationally, with the queen saying she was & # 39; deeply saddened & # 39; and Pope Francis offered prayers.
Teams of firefighters from all over the city were called in to try to turn off the fire after it quickly spread through the cathedral on Monday evening

Huge amounts have been pledged to repair Paris' beloved Paris, of which President Emmanuel Macron has set the target for five years.
He said that France & # 39; Notre Dame Cathedral will rebuild even more beautifully &, while addressing the nation, just over 24 hours after the devastating fire.
The heritage director of Notre Dame said that only one piece of architecture in the holy building has been damaged.
Laurent Prades says that the high altar that was installed in 1989 was hit by the spire of the cathedral when it crashed into the flames.
& # 39; We were able to save the rest, & # 39; said Mr. Prades, who experienced the recovery from one day to the next.
& # 39; All eighteenth century steles, the pietas, frescoes, chapels and the large organ are fine. & # 39;

One of the cathedral's most valuable items, a remnant believed to be the crown of thorns bearing Jesus Christ on the cross, was taken away to a secure facility.
Jean-Marc Fournier, chaplain of the Paris fire brigade, was praised as a hero after joining fire fighters in the burning cathedral to save the holy remnant.
He also helped the wounded in the aftermath of the November 2015 terrorist attack in Bataclan in Paris.
The three & # 39; irreplaceable & # 39; rose windows from Notre Dame, dating back to the 13th century that were thought to have melted or exploded, were also intact.
Father Fournier also survived an ambush in Afghanistan, killing 10 soldiers during his time as an army pastor.
