Police receive terror alert that ISIS fighters have left Syria and are heading to France and Belgium to stage attacks
The alert from Belgium’s anti-terror cell says the group ‘left Syria about a week and a half ago aiming to reach Europe via Turkey and Greece by boat without passports’.
Police and anti-terrorism investigators have been alerted to the possibility that small groups of ISIS extremists have left Syria for France and Belgium with plans to stage attacks.
Belgian intelligence services sent a note to French counterparts about the warning and it was sent to police across France on Tuesday, a French security official said today.
Belgium’s Derniere Heure tabloid reported that Belgium’s anti-terror office warned police that fighters with access to weapons may have left Syria about 10 days ago for Belgium and France.
The paper, which said it had obtained an alert message, said fighters travelling without passports were believed to be trying to reach Europe by boat via Turkey and Greece.
A Brussels shopping mall, an American fast-food chain and police could be among their targets.
