A PRO-ISIS website has warned of further attacks in Spain from terror cells still embedded in the country.
The Wafa Media Foundation published a statement addressed ‘from the Islamic Republic of Spain to the Government of Spain’, saying: “The war has not been fought and gone”.
It comes after the sick terror group – based in Iraq and Syria – claimed responsibility for the attacks in Barcelona which killed 15 and injured more than 120.
In the chiling new message just days after Spain’s first terrorist attack since 2004, the extremists said Catalonia would be conquered ‘like Gibraltar and Andalucia’, which were once under the control of the Moors.
It said the attacks would be revenge for military operations in Bahrain, Iraq and Somalia.
While they have claimed responsibility, there is no evidence that any of the group were in direct contact with its recruiters or had ever traveled to its camps for training.
The attackers are believed to have been radicalised by imam Abdelbaki Es Satty, who in fact had links to al-Qaeda – an enemy of ISIS.
All 12 members of the terror cell which operated out of the small town of Ripoll, north of Barcelona, have now been accounted for, Spanish police say.
Eight of them are dead.
