Imminent Terror Alert ! Update November 24, 2017

Timely warning alert terrorism attack

By simultaneously flooding the targeted countries with Mujahideen activities the Islamic State seeks a guarantee success of high Profile Terror Attacks by ISIS in Europe, Australia, Canada and even the US.

November 2014 an Anti Money Laundering and risk assessment operation in the Maghreb, Egypt and other parts of the Middle East. Discovering an imminent threat to major cities in Western Europe, as a prime target for the ISIS network, reason for a 90-days terror alert.

Recently intercepted encrypted messages between members of the ISIS network mentioning elements of the coordination for a high profile terror attack.

Ongoing humint and analysis, regarding the above mentioned Terror Alert, yielded:

- Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi the Caliph of the Islamic State (ISIS) is adamant to demonstrate the extent of his power and confident the mujahideen will

- that the target cities are hosting (African Mafia) Transnational Organized Crime of which the lower (unwary) echelons facilitate transport, accommodation and arms. (Synergize the nexus Transnational Organized Crime and Terrorism)

- earlier small "lone wolf" attacks after February 2013 were trial runs (the only true lone wolf terrorist were the Unabomber and Anders Breivik)

- targets are to be chosen in line with its vision and mission, not only establishing fear by random killings but preferable also aiming to hurt financial services, their affiliates, personnel and an already weak economy

- Baghdadi expects to claim attacks around the globe in a personal message, emphasizing the scope of his power.

Update January 07, 2016 - Caraïbes - There is a surge in illegal money streams (from China) via the Caribbean, rapidly distorting local real estate markets (in the EU). Ongoing AML intelligence operations show that Hezbollah, Al Qaeda and in recent years also Boko Haram and al Shabaab offer(ed) competitive money laundering services via the Caribbean (BVI, Nassau, ... ). Providing a 'legal' cover and hiding ultimate beneficiaries in Transnational Organized Crime creates a bond of trust in the nexus with terrorism but also the need for both to visit the Caribbean.
