ISIS plotting an attack this week in the Champions League



ISIS plotting an attack this week in the Champions League

A threat has been issued by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) ahead of the Champions League as the Premier European Club tournament returns following the international break.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, the Islamic State, commonly known as ISIS, has issued threats to carry out terrorist attacks targeting Champions League games scheduled for this week.

The Metropolitan Police has acknowledged being informed about the alleged threat posed by ISIS.

In response to the threat, authorities in Madrid have declared a state of alertness. The Al Azaim Foundation, a media channel affiliated with ISIS, purportedly issued a threat to attack all four venues hosting this week’s quarter-final matches.

The group shared an image containing a menacing message aimed at the Parc des Princes, the Santiago Bernabeu, the Metropolitan, and the Emirates stadiums, with the ominous words “Kill them all.”

Reports from Spain indicate that authorities in Madrid have activated all available response mechanisms in light of the potential terrorist threat.

However, UEFA insists there is no cause for an alarm, maintaining measures of safety are in place to protect fans and players ahead of the games.

The Champions League games this week are going to see Real Madrid, Manchester City face off at the Santiago Bernabeu with Arsenal and Bayern Munich facing off at the Emirates today.

On Wednesday sees Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain face off at the Parc des Princes, with Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid facing off at the Wanda Metropolitano in Spain.
