The “simpler” terror acts, often carried out by lone attackers, allow the group to save on the training and equipment required for larger teams that are needed to organize large-scale attacks, the newspaper said on Thursday.
European and American officials cited by the newspaper warn that small-scale attacks could become part of Europeans’ daily lives, as Daesh has managed to develop a successful terror infrastructure in Europe.
The terrorist group, which is outlawed in the United States, Russia and condemned throughout the world, has seized vast areas in Iraq and Syria, forcing thousands of people to flee their homes. The radical Sunni group has become notorious for its human rights atrocities, such as the public beheading of foreign journalists and enslavement of religious minorities.
Daesh and its affiliates have claimed responsibility for numerous terrorist attacks carried out in various parts of the world, including the July 14 Nice attack and the the March 22 Brussels attacks.
