“The move comes amid fears of a fresh wave of attacks as jihadists return from Syria and radicalised prisoners are released from jail.”
That prisons have been allowed to become recruiting grounds for the global jihad is an ongoing indication of the fact that the British government (like governments all over the West) either still doesn’t take the jihad threat seriously, or more likely, is too intimidated by the growing Muslim population within the country to do anything effective to counter this recruitment. If they did, they’d be tarred as “Islamophobic.” So instead, people who sell vacation packages to Britons are being given “specialist terror training.” Yeah, that’ll work.
“HIGH ALERT Holiday reps given ‘specialist terror training after ISIS plot to massacre Brits in Med hotels,’” by Thomas Burrows, The Sun, June 9, 2019:
HOLIDAY reps are being given terror training as ISIS reportedly plot to massacre Brits at hotels across Europe.
The move comes amid fears of a fresh wave of attacks as jihadists return from Syria and radicalised prisoners are released from jail….
On Easter Sunday 2019, coordinated terrorist attacks on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka killed more than 250 people, which included UK holidaymakers….
The heads of MI5 and MI6 have revealed jihadis could “target hotel locations to kill, injure or take hostage” people in tourist hot spots, the Daily Star on Sunday reported.
Workers, from firms such as Thomas Cook, Jet2 and First Choice, have reportedly been given specific hotels to look after and taught “survival skills” should terrorists strike.
Since 2017 workers have been trained to help combat terror attacks abroad….
Charlie Winter, of the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation at King’s College London, said: “Now that ISIS has been defeated in Syria and Iraq, it will become more violent outside this area.
“It’s a grim outlook, but we are likely to see more attempts at attacks, more regularly, for the foreseeable future.
“Sri Lanka was not a one-off. If anything, it was a test run.”
