Recently, The Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists warned Britain of an attack more severe than the Paris assaults and will turn “children’s hair white”. The warning is said to refer to a verse in the Koran telling of the horrors expected on the “Judgement Day”.
The threat was made in the latest edition of the extremists, Arabic newspaper (al-Naba) following a brutal execution video posted by the militant group on the internet on 30 January ’16 which featured threats to attack Western nations, particularly Spain.
The article, which eulogizes Mohammed Emwazi, AKA “Jihadi John”, who was killed in recent drone strike by the US, warned that the UK will receive the “lion’s share” of slaughter “in response to its declaration of war against the Muslims”, it was said in reference to last month’s UK Parliament vote on airstrikes against ISIS in Syria.
According to sources, the new terror threats have sparked frenzied searches by MI5 for militant cells hiding in the Britain. The Metropolitan Police also reacted to the possibility of an imminent terror threat to the nation’s capital by saying:
“We want the public to be alert, not alarmed. The current threat level across the UK from international terrorism remains at severe, meaning an attack is highly likely.
“UK police and security and intelligence services are working tirelessly to confront this terrorist threat and keep the public safe.”
ISIS had released a video last week that featured nine of the Paris attackers, including the ringleader “Abdelhamid Abaaoud”.
Moreover, as per source, by examining the montage frame by frame, ‘The Sunday Times’ has identified a string of potential targets, including Buckingham Palace and the National Gallery in central London.
