ISIS is planning a wave of attacks against Western targets to boost morale following defeats in Syria and Iraq, intelligence official warn

ISIS is said to be planning a new wave of attacks against Western targets in an attempt to boost morale following crushing defeats in Syria and Iraq.

An intelligence official has warned the terror group’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is said to be alive and plotting his next evil move.

After US-backed offensives in Mosul and Raqqa have seen Islamic State fighters all but wiped out, the expert warned a new generation of terror groups could emerge from the ashes.

In the meantime, al-Baghdadi is thought to be pulling together ideas for ‘sophisticated attacks’ on countries such as Britain as an EU chief warned ISIS was moving funds out of the Middle East and pumping cash into European operations.
