Month of massacres: ISIS Ramadan attack threats ‘are credible’
ISLAMIC State threats to execute a month of massacres during Ramadan are credible, American security experts are warning.
And this week US terror brainboxes say lone-wolf extremists could respond to the “call to martyrdom” during and after the holy period.
“Sacrifice during Ramadan can be considered more valuable than that made at other times, so a call to martyrdom during the month may hold a special allure,” said the report, by the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC).
“Calls for Ramadan attacks by ISIS may inspire unaffiliated lone wolves who generally require less time for planning.
“While Ramadan could be an added impetus for terrorists to carry out attacks against perceived enemies in Europe, the threats are unlikely to stop when the month comes to a close.”
“the threats are unlikely to stop when the month comes to a close”
An audio recording released on May 21 heard Daesh doughnut Adnani saying: “Ramadan, the month of conquest and jihad.”
He urged jihadists to conduct lone-wolf attacks for a “great reward of martyrdom” and said ISIS wanted to “punish the crusaders day and night”.
England Euro 2016 fans dressed as crusaders have been warned they could be ISIS targets and a Whitehall insider said ISIS are planning a chemical weapons blitz on English footie supporters.
The OSAC report said the recent threat could be credible because ISIS carried out the “Black Friday” catastrophes three days after Adnani’s Ramadan call to arms last year.
Ramadan runs from this Monday, June 6, to July 5 – overlapping with Euro 2016 between June 10 and July 10.
ISIS declared its so-called Islamic caliphate during Ramadan in 2014.
