CNN Analyst Paul Cruickshank said the insider told him “there’s intelligence that has been obtained by European security agencies that ISIS in Syria and Iraq is aiming to hit the United Kingdom next”.
“So real concern now about the threat to the United Kingdom. ”Concern in Europe, particularly in the UK now that what we saw in Paris, an attack like that, could play out again, perhaps in the United Kingdom, in the weeks ahead.”
The terrifying claims came just weeks after Aine Davis – an associate of Jihadi John – was arrested in Turkey last month. He was allegedly carrying specific plans to carry out a terror attack in Europe handed to him by ISIS – also known as Daesh. Fears of an attack on home soil comes after MPs voted in favour of airstrikes in Syria this week..
He also warned Britain is under threat from homegrown jihadists capable of committing similar atrocities of the Paris attacks – which left 130 people dead. There are now fears the threat of terrorism is spreading from the Middle East to Europe, with MI5 maintaining the severe terror alert threat in the UK.
