“There are no specific terror alerts nor any information of this kind.” Italian secret services have denied Build’s report that feared the risk of possible suicide attacks on European beaches, especially in Italy and Spain during the summer. The title of the German newspaper read: “Terrorism planned on our beaches.” The article is about an exchange of information between German and Italian secret services, whose aim is preventing attacks that may be implemented by terrorists “disguised as street vendors” and ready to blow themselves up.
The concrete targets of the bombers would be, according to Bild, beaches in Italy, Spain and in southern France. Information about it would have been received from Africa. Terrorists would be ready to use weapons and explosives in the middle of sunbeds and umbrellas, the newspaper writes. A senior German security would have said: “Isis may design a new dimension of terror this way. Beaches cannot be protected.”
In short, according to Bild journalists, Isis is considering the possibility of repeating the attack in Sousse, Tunisia. In June last year, a jihad commando stormed a resort consisting of two hotels: the Imperial Marhaba in Hammam-Sousse, in the tourist area of Kentaoui, and Port el Kantaoui. The terrorists arrived on board a boat by sea and assaulted the beach. At that point, one of the two men who was wearing shorts like a normal tourist, opened fire with grenades and a Kalashnikov rifles he had hidden under an umbrella in his hand. The final toll stood at 39 dead and 38 wounded.
