Up to 60 ISIS jihadis were deployed in Europe ahead of the Paris attacks

By dailymail.co.uk

Around 60 Islamic State jihadis were stationed in cities across Europe shortly before the Paris attacks in November last year and were planning to carry out a number of atrocities.

An intelligence source has revealed the target cities were Paris, London, Berlin and a heavily populated area somewhere in Belgium, although there is no evidence to suggest the attacks were to take place simultaneously.

The source also revealed that Western intelligence agencies are concerned ISIS may attempt an even more ambitious attack in the coming months.

The unnamed senior European counterterrorism source told CNN that security agencies had ‘hints’ that an attack was to be carried out shortly before the Paris massacre, but information was difficult to verify and too vague and fragmented to act on.
