The UK is “next on the list” for a Paris-like ISIS attack in the coming weeks, security expert claims

A security expert has claimed that ISIS will attack the UK in a Paris-like attack over the coming weeks.

Paul Cruickshank claims ISIS extremists are reportedly planning to attack the UK after naming it as its next target following the vote to bomb Syria.

The Paris-like terror attacks would be launched by British-born jihadists travelling back from Syria, Cruickshanke, the Middle East security expert warned.

Cruickshank said he had been told about the threat by a senior European counter-terrorism official.

“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. The intelligence suggesting that British ISIS operatives in Syria and Iraq have been tasked to return to the United Kingdom to launch an attack against the UK.”

“These concerns have been compounded by that vote yesterday in the British House of Commons authorising British airstrikes for the first time against ISIS in Syria.”

He concluded with “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.”
