ISIS is plotting a ‘new 9/11’ and will bring down planes to cause maximum devastation, according to Trump’s Homeland Security chief.
What’s more, the terror group is currently using van attacks – like the one at London Bridge – to keep their members engaged while they raise funds for a ‘big explosion’.
Elaine Duke, acting Secretary of Homeland Security says the plan is to recreate the 2001 atrocities where four planes were hijacked by al-Qaeda – two of which were crashed into the North and South towers of the World Trade Center.
Speaking at the US embassy in London, Mrs Duke said: “The terrorist organisations, be it ISIS or others, want to have the big explosion like they did on 9/11 . They want to take down aircraft, the intelligence is clear on that.
