ISIS is developing driver-free cars in a bid to carry out spectacular attacks against the West, it has emerged.
Scientists and ballistics experts have been employed by the terror group to create sophisticated new weapons intended to bring bloodshed to Europe.
From a ‘jihadi university’ in the Syrian city of Raqqa, they are working on building remote-controlled vehicles which can be used as mobile bombs in devastating strikes.
In another chilling twist, IS – also called Daesh – have stunned Western security agencies by modifying defunct missiles so they are capable of downing passenger jets or military aircraft.
The products of the terror group’s research-and-development unit were disclosed after eight hours of training videos carried by a captured IS fighter were handed to Sky News.
Major Chris Hunter, a former UK Special Forces soldier and advisor to the British military, said he was shocked at some of the developments revealed in the film footage.
He said: ‘I think this is one of the most significant intelligence finds in terms of Daesh.
‘What we’ve seen with their typical propaganda videos is they’re very, very high quality. They’re designed, they’re produced to inspire people and prospectively touch the nerves of anybody who is viewing them; they’re done in a very specific way.
‘With this training footage it’s very clearly purely designed to pass on information – to pass on the progress in the research and development areas – and it gives us a very good insight into where they are now, what they’re aspiring to do and crucially the diversity of the types of threats we might face. I would say it is an intelligence gold mine.’
According to the film clips, an IS team has produced fully-working driver-free cars which can be packed with explosives and driven into a target, causing horrific damage.
