ISIS warlords reveal plans to bring bloodshed to the World Cup by mowing down football fans using minibuses

23

ISIS warlords have threatened bloodshed at the World Cup by mowing down fans in vehicles.

In chilling echoes of recent attacks using the same simple but deadly method in London, Nice, Barcelona and Berlin, the extremists have released a photo of a jihadi with a blood-stained mini-van in the foreground.

A caption simply states: “Russia.”

Another poster encourages fighters to attack the tournament – using guns, knives, explosives, as well as vehicles.

The chilling call for strikes also shows the area of the body to target in attacks with knives.

Another shows Fifa president Gianni Infantino dressed in an orange boiler suit kneeling in front of an ISIS fighter.

With Islamic State all but defeated in Iraq and Syria, many Russian fighters have returned home with orders to carry out attacks in their homelands.

And the World Cup, which kicks off next month, has been singled out as a high profile target by ISIS warlords.

Security analysts around the world are predicting some kind of attack at the showpiece tournament – that begins next month.

Chris Hawkins, a senior analyst at Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Centre, revealed: “There are numerous terrorism threats affecting the World Cup.

“The main one, as with the rest of Russia, comes from lone actors with low capabilities.

“Tactics will likely include knives and vehicle attacks targeting fans visiting games or the surrounding areas.

“Aspirational targets will include match day stadia, particularly in Moscow and St Petersburg – the two cities that will have the largest concentration of foreign visitors, with Moscow hosting the key fixtures of the World Cup, including the final and the opening fixture.

“Sochi and Volgograd are two other cities at heightened risk due to their proximity to the North Caucasus region meaning they are logistically viable cities for militants to stage attacks.”

ISIS has already issued a number of threats to carry out a terror campaign during the World Cup.
