Attack Berlin and Brussels, so as to “paralyze” Europe. This seems to be one of Isis’ last projects after the vote that determined Britain’s exit from the European Union. CNN reports this piece of news, citing Site, which had intercepted a jihadist message on the encrypted network the militants used for communication. The self-styled Islamic State seems to be preparing new attacks on the Old Continent in order to take advantage of the chaos that might result after the vote on Brexit. Meanwhile, a spokesman of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) told Ap Sherfan Darwish Agency that nine hundred Kurdish civilians, mostly men and teens, were taken captive by Isis in northern Syria in the last three weeks and many of them were forced to dig trenches.
The news has been confirmed by the National Observatory for Human Rights (Ondus), according to which kidnappings had been reported in villages near the town of Al Bab. SDF is a coalition of Kurdish and Arab militias, backed by the United States, which began an offensive against the jihadists in Manbij region (one of their strongholds) at the end of May. Isis militiamen also killed 8 people, including 2 women and 2 children, in an attack in eastern Afghanistan, according to local police sources. There seem to be also two agents among the victims. During the offensive, which took place in Kot district, the militants attacked several checkpoints and torched 25 houses. Afghan forces reacted to this assault killing about 30 jihadists.
