Islamic State Plans Attacks From Camps in Europe, Europol Says

Islamic State has set up a special operations command to mastermind more terrorist attacks on “soft targets” in Europe, drawing on training camps on European soil and with France as the most at-risk country, the European Union’s crime-fighting agency said.

It is possible that similar operations “are currently being planned and prepared,” Europol said in a report released on Monday during a meeting of EU interior ministers in Amsterdam. “The wide range of possible targets in combination with an opportunistic approach of locally based groups creates a huge variety of possible scenarios for future terrorist events.”

While Syria remains the hub, Islamic State has set up “smaller scale” training camps in the 28-nation EU and in the Balkans, granting local operatives greater tactical freedom to strike at will, Europol said.

Never a dull moment, is there? I'm thinking in scale the Paris attacks were pretty much test runs. Now they know how effective they were, how easy it was, and even possible for some of the attackers to escape, the next ones will dwarf those. :poopywb4:

And no mention of any plans to do anything about this. Just putting fear out there and no reassurances that this will be dealt with BEFORE they can complete the deeds.
