Leader of the Islamic State Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi plans a new wave of terrorist attacks in European countries – in order to boost the fighters’ morale after they suffered heavy losses in Iraq and Syria. The Telegraph reported that referring to Lahur Talabany , ‘the head of Kurdish intelligence who has been heavily involved in the military campaign to liberate Mosul from the ISIS’, as the outlet put it.
“We are going to see a lot more attacks on the West that are designed to boost the morale of the fighters who have suffered heavy losses,” said Mr Talabany. “They are trying to do attacks that will get them publicity. The more sophisticated attacks are being organized by the leadership around the Baghdadi camp.”
