Terrorism: ISIS Fighters Returning From Iraq, Syria May Unleash Europe Attacks: Eoghan Macguir

ISIS may step up attacks in Europe as it loses ground in the Middle East and foreign fighters return to their home countries, a new report from Europol warned Friday.

The continental law enforcement agency said that car bombs, extortion and kidnappings could be employed by networked groups of fighters or lone wolf attackers who have pledged allegiance to the group or have been inspired by it.

However, attacks using guns, knives and vehicles remain more likely given the easier access to such weaponry, according to Europol. Attacks on major infrastructure such as power stations and nuclear facilities also remains unlikely given ISIS' preference for "soft targets," it added.

Note EU-Digest: It is recommended that special security measures are taken at Public gatherings, Educational facilities, Shopping malls, Places of Worship,  Sports and Cultural events. Also, please immediately contact the police if you see suspicious behavior.
