The Islamic State threatens terrorist attacks in the Champions League quarterfinals


The Islamic State has threatened to carry out terrorist attacks during the first leg matches of the Champions League quarterfinals, which will take place at the Santiago Bernabéu, the Cívitas Metropolitano, the Emirates Stadium and the Parque de los Príncipes, as confirmed by SITE Intelligence Group, an organization specialized in monitoring terrorist groups.

The jihadists have published several images through related media such as the Al-Azaim Foundation and Sarh al-Khilafah, one of them with the legend ‘Kill them all’, in which you can see a man with his face covered wearing a rifle and the name of all the stadiums where ‘Champions’ matches are being played this week.

Spain, which is at level 4 out of 5 of anti-terrorist alert, will host two of the duels of the maximum continental competition in the coming days; Real Madrid will face Manchester City this Tuesday at the Santiago Bernabéu, while Atlético de Madrid will host Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday at the Cívitas Metropolitano.

In addition, Arsenal and Bayern Munich will face each other this Tuesday at the Emirates Stadium in London, while FC Barcelona will visit Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes in the French capital.
