A TERROR expert has revealed the threat of an ISIS attack in Spain is steadily mounting.

And the Guardia Civil recently released a warning about a possible imminent attack, stating that Spain, France, Belgium and Italy are all at risk of a  Paris-style attack.

Will Geddes, head of global security firm International Corporate Protection, said the threat is on the increase.

“Spain has had a history of terrorist threats from ETA the Basque separatists to al-Aqaeda and the devastating Madrid bombings.

“However since last summer, the threat from ISIS radicals has increased as predicted,” he said.

Coastal areas of Spain are at the highest risk, the Costa del Sol, the Costa Blanca and the Costa Brava, with their tourists hotspots of Marbella, Alicante, Valencia and Barcelona respectively.

According to the foreign office, Spain has a ‘high threat from terrorism’.

The news comes after the terror threat was higher in Spain than it was in Iran in July  2015 after the Foreign Office lifted the terror ban to the eastern state.
