An audio message posted online Thursday supposedly bearing the voice of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi encourages attacks to continue in Saudi Arabia.

The tape was released by an ISIS media group, and in it a man claiming to be al-Baghdadi talks about the U.S. decision to send additional troops to Iraq, which President Barack Obama announced Nov. 7.

Al-Baghdadi has only been seen as a shadowy figure on camera in the past, and State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters they could not confirm if it was actually his voice, ABC News reported.

But, she said, “clearly the brutality, the rhetoric, the efforts to incite by any leaders of [ISIS] is not a new phenomenon."

On the tape, the man claiming to be the ISIS leader called on the organization’s followers to “erupt volcanoes of jihad,” and said, “O soldiers of the Islamic State, continue to harvest the soldiers. Erupt volcanoes of jihad everywhere. Light the Earth with fire."

The man claiming to be al-Baghdadi also said bombings occurring in Syria and Iraq against ISIS are failing, adding, “America and its allies are terrified, weak, and powerless.”

Recent reports indicated al-Baghdadi may have been injured in a bombing last weekend.

Reuters said the voice sounds similar to a speech delivered by al-Baghdadi in Mosu, Iraq, but could not confirm that the recently released tape was of the ISIS leader.

Reuters said the man on the tape also encouraged the fight in Yemen, which was taken by Shi’ite Houthis in September, saying, “Oh soldiers of Yemen ... be harsh against the Houthis, they are infidels and apostates. Fight them and win against them."
