'This is the new normal' Terrorism will RISE as ISIS is wiped out warns security expert


Will Geddes said more fighters would return to their “home nations” as Coalition forces close in on ISIS.

Mr Geddes, managing director of a London-based security consultancy, added it was time to be “philosophical” about terrorist motivations.

Speaking to Julia Hartley-Brewer on talkRADIO, he called for the Government to take decisive action on surveillance and security.  

Ms Hartley-Brewer said: “How many times are we going to hear this about a terror attack whether it’s Spain or the UK or Belgium or France or Germany or anywhere else and accept that it’s just part and parcel of living in a major city?”

Mr Geddes, who is in Barcelona, replied it was the “hardest complexity” to find a solution.

He said: “I think unfortunately Julia you’re absolutely right, I think we have to be philosophical about the fact that this is the new normal unfortunately we live in.

“I think the hardest complexity to try to resolve, or find a resolution to this situation, is trying to get to the nub of what are the motivations.

“I think as Islamic State, for example, as their position diminishes out in the Middle East in Syria and Iraq, as the Coalition forces close in on their positions and shut them down, many of their fighters are going to be returning to their original nations or their home nations and carrying out attacks of this nature.”

Meanwhile, Barcelona attack suspect Moussa Oukabir was one of the jihadi cell shot dead by police in Cambrils, police have revealed.

Five men were shot dead in the coastal town of Cambrils eight hours after 13 people were killed on Las Ramblas, Barcelona.

The twin attacks in the Catalan capital were a reaction to air strikes in Syria,  claimed, despite Spaniards refusing to take part in air bombing campaigns in 2015.

Horrifying images have in the tourist hotspot of Las Ramblas.

So far 13 people have been confirmed dead after the attack and around 130 people injured, 15 seriously, while Catalan authorities have said the death toll could rise.
