ISIS threatens terror attack in London TONIGHT at Arsenal’s Champions League game

Arteta ‘enjoying the moment’ as Arsenal pursue Champions League glory

ISIS terrorists have menacingly threatened to target this week’s Champions League quarter-final matches with a bloodcurdling “kill them all” warning in a graphic poster directed at spectators. The chilling poster displayed the names and pictures of all four stadiums where the first-leg fixtures are taking place – including the 81,000-seat Santiago Bernabeu, where Manchester City face Real Madrid, and north London’s Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal host Bayern Munich.

The blood-splattered poster released by the Al Azaim Foundation, the media outlet Islamic State uses to spread its hateful messages, shows an ISIS fighter in front of the stadiums alongside the words: “Kill them all.”

Reports in Spain claim the country’s government has activated its security procedures for the two Champions League fixtures taking place in its capital on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, with Atletico Madrid also taking on Borussia Dortmund at the Wanda Metropolitano.

More than 8,000 away fans are expected for the games in Madrid, with a 3,000-strong security team reportedly on patrol. A spokesman for European football’s governing body (UEFA) confirmed the games would still be going ahead, saying: “Uefa is aware of alleged terrorist threats made towards this week’s Uefa Champions League matches and is closely liaising with the authorities at the respective venues.

“All matches are planned to go ahead as scheduled with appropriate security arrangements in place.”

A week before the poster emerged, ISIS-affiliated media outlet Sarh al-Khilafah threatened an attack on the Allianz Arena during Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga clash against Borussia Dortmund.

Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium holds 60,000 supporters, and 49,000 can fit into the Parc des Princes in the English and French capitals, respectively.

Arsenal have been approached for comment on potential adjustments to security measures.

ISIS’ latest attack occurred before an event at the Crocus City Hall, a large concert hall in the Russian capital, Moscow, on March 22.

Several men dressed in camouflage entered the building armed with guns in the sickening act of terror, killing 143 people and wounding a further 200 victims.

The roof also partially collapsed after a grenade or incendiary bomb was used, starting a fire. ISIS claimed responsibility through affiliated news agency Amaq on Telegram.
