IS plans attacks across Europe

S.Sivadas

The Islamic State terror group is plotting deadly attacks across Europe along the lines of the one it carried out on a Paris concert hall that killed 130 people were killed four years ago, according to a UK newspaper. Those  November 2015 attacks were a series of coordinated terror strikes in Paris and its northern suburb of Saint-Denis.

Three suicide bombers struck outside the Stade de France stadium during a football match, followed by several shootings and a suicide bombing at restaurants. In all 130 people died at the Bataclan concert hall. Documents reveal detailed plans of terrorist attacks in Europe and the Middle East, funded and controlled by ISIS leaders who are 'actively planning' to recreate that Paris-style attack.

According to the daily, 'The operations in Europe are only a fraction of the plans outlined in the documents, which were found on a hard drive dropped by members of an ISIS cell in a firefight near the militants' final stronghold in Syria earlier this year.' The documents say even with its so-called caliphate destroyed in Syria, the ISIS group continues to run sophisticated international networks, move fighters across  borders, fund operations and plan bank robberies, vehicle rammings, assassinations and computer hacking.
