ISIL plot against Brit military parade foiled
Police have encouraged the public to attend events as normal after it was reported that an Armed Forces Day parade had been targeted by Islamic State(Isis).With this groups if Islamic terrorist, it makes more sense to send the military into Iraq and Syria and destroy their base than to be on the defensive at home. There have also been threats in the US around the July 4th celebrations that Have led to several arrest by the FBI. ISIL is also believed behind recent mass murder attacks in Tunisia, and Kuwait and the terror attack in France.
An intended suicide bombing of a parade in south London on Saturday would have targeted soldiers from the same unit as murdered soldier Lee Rigby, according to The Sun.
The plot to explode a pressure-cooker bomb – to kill soldiers and bystanders on the route – was revealed after one of its leaders in Syria unwittingly recruited an undercover investigator from the newspaper to carry it out, the report said.
It is alleged that a figure in Isis, whom it named as Junaid Hussain from Birmingham, told the investigator: “It will be big. We will hit the kuffar(unbelievers) hard InshAllah. Hit their soldiers in their own land. InshAllah. Soldiers that served in Iraq and Afganistan will be present. Jump in the crowd and detonate the bomb.
“They think they can kill Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan then come back to the UK and be safe. We’ll hit them hard InshAllah.”
