London: In a disturbing revelation, it has emerged that a bunch of Islamic State-trained men are already present in Britain, ready to carry out “lone-wolf attacks” on targets including Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family at Saturday's VJ (Victory over Japan) commemorations.
The fresh inputs came to light during an undercover investigation by the Sky News in which a freelance journalist created fictional characters online – a man and a woman committed to jihad.
The fictional jihadi characters were used to post messages on Twitter an chatrooms so as to attract the attention of real ISIS online recruiters.
Shockingly, the characters created by the Sky News freelance journalist were approached by real ISIS jihadists and were also sent terror “guidebooks” which would help them to collect funds and build weapons.
One of the ISIS jihadist to contact them was Junaid Hussain, a 21-year-old hacker-turned-ISIS fighter who runs Isis’ information and recruitment arm from Syria. He is also one of the top-five drone strike targets by US Secret Service, reports the Sky News.
Junaid Haussain's wife Sally Jones, deals with the female ISIS supporters.
It was Sally Jones, who sent the detailed plot to attack the Queen at the VJ Commemorations day which falls on this Saturday.
During the investigation, the Sky news also learned of a new ISIS tactic – instead of calling the jihadis to Syria to join them, the Islamic State is now urging them to stay in the UK and carry out attacks there.
Sensing uncertainty on part of the fictonal female jihadi character, Sally assured her that there were two or three potential bombers already present in Britain.
Besides this, the Sky News also contacted a Gestapo – a man from ISIS internal security who claimed four or five Syria-trained jihadis had returned back to Britain to carry out attacks.
The Sky News says that the possibility of seven potential ISIS-trained bombers being present in Britain has already been informed to the Metropolitan Police.
