Spain: Jihad terror threat raised to “severe,” 40,000 extra cops deployed
UK tourists “visiting Spain for their summer holidays have been warned” that the jihad terror “threat level has been raised to ‘severe,’” and the cost to keep tourists safe has skyrocketed. 40,000 extra police personnel will be deployed to secure the tourist hotspots. The alert follows threats by Islamic State supporters, who vowed revenge over the death of British Islamic State recruiter Sally Jones.
The UK Foreign Office has warned terrorists are “likely” to try to carry out attacks in Spain. “Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners,” the warning on the website reads.
Wars need to be approached like wars, but most infidel countries remain passive, still unable to accept the nature of the jihad war to conquer infidel nations. Infiltration by jihadist combatants who are running around freely among innocent citizens are widely ignored. While citizens are in danger, their hard-earned money is being spent on increasingly essential security services. The more jihadists are appeased, the stronger they become.
“HOLS TERROR ALERT Scots tourists warned as Spain terror threat raised to ‘SEVERE’ with 40,000 extra cops deployed,” by Jenny Awford, The Scottish Sun, June 16, 2019:
SCOTS and other UK tourists visiting Spain for their summer holidays have been warned the terror threat level has been raised to “severe”.
The alert was issued after ISIS supporters threatened to attack Spanish tourist towns in revenge for the death of British ISIS recruiter Sally Jones.
The Daily Star Online reported that up to 40,000 more Spanish cops will be deployed to tourist hotspots in the popular holiday destination.
Police will stand guard outside stations, hotels, beaches and restaurants to provide extra protection amid the threats from ISIS.
This forms part of Operation Summer, which aims to “take full action to obtain information in order to prevent terrorist acts”
Police have raised the terror threat level to four out of five, with the higher number being the most severe.
The UK Foreign Office has warned terrorists are “likely” to try to carry out attacks in Spain.
“Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners,” the warning on the website reads.
“The Spanish authorities take measures to protect visitors, but you should be vigilant and follow the instructions of the local authorities.
“There’s a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK interests and British nationals from groups or individuals motivated by the conflict in Iraq and Syria.
“You should be vigilant at this time.”
Britain also warned about the possibility of “large gatherings” in the Catalan capital of Barcelona due to the ongoing push by separatists to break away from the rest of Spain.
While these demonstrations in the past have largely been peaceful odd pockets of violence have broken out mainly due to counter demonstrations with ultra-nationalists.
BARCELONA TERROR ATTACK
Barcelona was targeted by terrorists in August 2017 when a van deliberately drove into crowds on tourist hotspot Las Ramblas, killing 14 and injuring around 100 others.
Five suspects were shot dead by police in Cambrils after the group rammed an Audi A3 into people on the seafront, killing one and injuring six.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks by the jihadi gang.
And now supporters of the terror group have threatened more attacks in the country, with Barcelona and Madrid named as targets.
The terrifying threats surfaced earlier this month in a 33-minute pro-Islamic State video was uncovered by the Middle East research group MEMRI
The video was found on file-sharing platform Telegram and released by ISIS propaganda outlet Muntasir Media.
The film, entitled Behind the Mask, purports to “reveal the real face of the west”, screengrabs from the video claim.
ATTACKS ON TOURIST TOWNS
The final three minutes of the clip allege to threaten attacks in Barcelona or Madrid.
Such attacks would be similar to those perpetrated in Paris in November of 2015 and are said to be in revenge of the death of ISIS recruiter Sally Jones….
