VILE: ISIS believed to have inspired the shocking murders

isisSECURITY forces in Spain have stopped at least ten ‘extremely dangerous’ terror attacks since 2011.

Working together, the Policia Nacional, Guardia Civil, regional police forces and the National Intelligence Centre successfully carried out several counter-terrorism operations.

One prevented attack in 2011 featured a plan to poison potable water tanks that were intended for tourists.

More recently it was revealed terror groups ISIS and Boko Haram had hatched a plan to massacre tourists on the Costa del Sol by posing as ice cream vendors and planting bombs under sunbeds.

Spanish authorities say they are regularly intercepting Islamic State recruiters and their affiliates, most of whom are of Moroccan descent.
