London: European spy agencies have warned Britain of an imminent attack in the UK by the Islamic State group to be executed within weeks, a media report said on Friday.
Intelligence officials said it will be similar to the Paris attacks involving bombs and automatic weapons.
MailOnline quoting intelligence sources said that British-born jihadists have been tasked with carrying out a Paris-style terror attack within weeks.
The likely attackers have traveled to Syria for training, the report said, adding that the security agencies have obtained 'specific intelligence' that Britain is the next target on the ISIS' hit list.
The development comes after the British Parliament has given the green light to its military to bomb the ISIS strongholds in Syria.
Citing an unnamed intelligence source, the report said, “British ISIS operatives in Syria and Iraq are being tasked to return to the UK to launch an attack against the United Kingdom.”
In the Paris attacks last month, at least 130 people were killed and scores of others were injured when the ISIS jihadists targeted public places with guns and bombs. The French police are still searching for the mastermind of the attacks.
