In an interview with the Sunday Times, Ben Wallace’s state security minister warned that the Islamic state (ISIS) planned chemical attack on British soil.
(He warned that it was committed in Syria)
Wallace said the Islamic State or ISIS want terror and mass murder.
They have no moral objections to the use of chemical weapons against the population, and if they can do it. The number of possible victims would be the worst fear for everyone.
Reportedly used chemical weapons in Syria and Iraq, and possibly such aspirations in Europe.
ISIS assume that there is control over chemical weapons, members are former officials of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. It is believed that the weapons are kept in Libya.
The group already uses sulfur mustard gas in Syria. According to British intelligence, gas is produced by the Islamic State, and that the user desires additional experimentation to develop biological weapons.
Wallace’s arrest in Morocco Islamic state cell in February, said: “Moroccan authorities dismantled a cell involving chemical weapons. They’re toxic chemical and biological substances and a large inventory of fertilizer. The substances found could be used to produce improvised explosive devices and can be transformed into a deadly poison. ”
Security services and police were preparing training for armed attacks, said Wallace. In an exercise of the fire service in northwestern England, they educate on how to deal with chemical decontamination after an attack.
Also included exercises simulating an attack on London’s Canary Wharf, the conference center in Birmingham and Trafford Centre Manchester.
Wallace called a public constant vigilance.
“If you work in government or someone does wonders for your business or if you are working in the defense industry and one is more curious than they should be, report it,” he said.
“If you are working in an airport and you see strange behavior or bags are not checked, say something.”
Wallace, who served in military intelligence in Northern Ireland, wants to see high levels of public awareness about the threat of ISIS as there “when the IRA makes bombing campaigns in the 1970s and 1980s.”
About 800 Britons have traveled to Syria to fight the Islamic State, on half returned to the UK and another 100 and something killed.
In 2015, about 150 people were prevented from traveling to a war zone by the authorities, and Wallace said he expects the figure for 2016 would be “very similar”.
“The big problem is if Mosul falls and all other grounds of Isis collapse. We know that there is a number of [British] fighting for what is in Syria. They will probably want to come home,” he said.
“There will also be those people who wanted to go there but can no longer go there. Their frustration can boil over.”
