EU and NATO officials confirmed today there is evidence that the Islamic State is plotting nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) attacks on the European continent and the United Kingdom. Jorge Berto Silva, deputy head of counterterrorism for the European Commission, said at a conference in London that ISIS is constantly evading established security measures and looking for new ways to get explosive and dangerous material into European cities, such as implanting the bombs in human bodies and using driverless cars to ram crowds. There is even evidence ISIS has obtained Iraqi short-range missiles and rockets to attack cities from outside the center.

Dr. Jamie Shea, deputy assistant secretary general for emerging security threats at Nato, reportedly added regarding NBC materials: “We know terrorists are trying to acquire these substances,” reported the Mirror.

The conference also concluded that the Islamic State organization was continuing to metastasize into different parts as its home territory in Syria and Iraqi is reduced by coalition and Russian forces. While Western governments talk up advances against ISIS in the Middle East, the point may be moot as the terrorist army is now infiltrated across Europe.

German and Italian intelligence have also reported that ISIS is looking to prosecute massive attacks against European resorts this summer while posing as refugees selling ice cream and T-shirts. There are also reports of suicide attacks and plans to detonate bombs buried under sun beds as Europeans flock to beach locations.
