ISIS Threatens Terror Attacks On Champions League Games In Paris, London, Madrid

Reportedly, Islamic State terrorists have issued threats to target tonight’s Champions League matches, including the fixture between Arsenal and Bayern Munich at the Emirates Stadium in London.

The Metropolitan Police has stated that it is aware of a reported threat by the Islamic State (ISIS) against stadiums hosting Champions League games this week, while authorities in Madrid have announced they are “on alert.”

As reported by the Daily Mail, the Al Azaim Foundation, a media outlet known for disseminating messages from the terrorist group, has issued a threat to attack all four venues hosting this week’s quarter-finals.

This includes the Emirates Stadium in London, where Arsenal will face Bayern Munich tonight, and the Santiago Bernabeu, where Manchester City will play against Real Madrid.

Additionally, a post shared by the group containing the phrase ‘kill all’ also mentioned the Parc des Princes in Paris and the Metropolitano in Madrid, both of which are hosting matches tomorrow.

Authorities in Madrid have reportedly activated their alert and response systems in response to the alleged terrorist threat, as per reports in Spain. Former Metropolitan Police officer Norman Brennan stated that the security services and police in the UK would also assess and respond to the perceived threat based on its credibility.

He told MailOnline, “MI5, MI6 and the Met’s anti-terror squad monitor anything and everything to do with terrorism, including attack threats.

“They are very ahead on this kind of thing and will have plans in place depending on how serious they consider the treat to be.

“They’ll be a heightened security presence with cameras and cars, while people connected to ISIS monitored.

“Everyone will be on alert while allowing people to get on with their lives – we can’t have terrorists deciding how we behave.”

The Spanish government has implemented their security measures for this week’s Champions League double-header. It’s reported that more than 3,000 security personnel have been deployed for the fixtures in Spain, specifically the matches between Real Madrid vs Manchester City and Atletico vs Borussia Dortmund.

This deployment includes over 2,000 agents from the National Police and Civil Guard, who will be stationed in the Spanish capital over the next 24 hours.

Approximately 8,000 Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund fans are expected to travel to Spain for the matches scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Fernando Grand-Marlaska, Head of the Ministry of the Interior, stated on Tuesday morning that all early warning and protection systems, as well as response mechanisms, have been activated by the State Security Forces and Bodies to prevent the terrorist threat.

He emphasized that all security protocols have been adopted to ensure the safety of both players and fans inside the stadiums. The last attack by the Islamic State occurred on March 22 at the Crocus City Hall, a large concert hall in Moscow, where several men dressed in camouflage stormed the building, resulting in the deaths of 143 people and injuries to a further 200.
