Shocking documents detailing a wave of ISIS attacks across Europe have been discovered on a hard drive dropped by members of the terror group as they fled their last stronghold in Syria earlier this year.
The chilling plans are believed to be inspired by the terrorist attack in Paris four years ago, when ISIS killers stormed the Bataclan concert hall and other areas of the city and killed 130 people.
Two years later, they committed another atrocity in Manhattan where jihadis crashed into cyclists and runners in the city, killing eight.
ISIS are now planning to repeat this horrific attacks in a new wave of atrocities across Europe, including an attack on a high-speed train network in Germany and on an oil pipeline in Switzerland.
The planned atrocities were found on a hard drive dropped by members of the terror group as they fled their last stronghold in Syria earlier this year
Seen by the Sunday Times, the documents included a letter addressed to ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and co-signed by six ISIS leaders.
Even with its stronghold destroyed, the terror group still has international networks which it uses to move fighters over borders and fund operations.
The operations include bank robberies, vehicle rammings, assassinations and computer hacking.
The documents reveal how a member called Abu Khabab al-Muhajir, who controls two terror cells in Germany and one in Russia, will direct operations abroad.
Those attacks will focus on stealing money to fund the terror group.
The letter read: ‘Killing infidel venture capitalists, hacking banks through bank accounts, bank robberies or robberies of places that are pre-studied. After any operation of this kind, we will send the money as we procure it.’
They are believed to have been inspired by the terrorist attacks all over Paris four years ago
Chillingly, the terror group is planning on transporting foreign fighters to Europe to carry out the attacks, with Arab, Russian and Caucasian fighters travelling through Turkey from Syria.
One commander claimed that two operations would take place 10 and 20 days after the letter was sent, in December of last year.
The first operation would target a high-speed train in Germany while another would target an oil pipeline in Basel, Switzerland.
Adding weight to these letters, an ISIS flag was found near a Berlin train track a few days after the letter, with the overhead wires damaged.
Last month an Iraqi man was arrested in Vienna and accused of sympathising with ISIS and carrying out the attack, though nobody was hurt.
130 people were killed in a series of terror attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015 and the documents suggest similar plans are in the works
However, the incident combined with the letters suggests that ISIS is still planning to wreak terror on Europe.
One of the documents said: ‘We are your soldiers in Europe, we see what the enemies of Allah do to our Muslim brothers in the home of Islam by killing and bombardment and destruction of houses.
‘We are under your command and subject to your orders and your sword that which you strike with the enemies of Allah in Europe.’
