"ISLAMIC terror outfit ISIS has threatened chilling attacks on the upcoming Paris Olympics in an appalling poster message.

The death cult posted a propaganda image showing one of its terrorists seemingly flying an "armed drone" to attack the iconic Eiffel Tower.

The poster, pushed by ISIS-linked social media channels, was captioned: "Lone wolves' Olympics have begun with the Will of Allah."

The chilling threat vaguely indicates there could be attempts to carry out lone-wolf-style terror attacks across Paris amid the upcoming games."

bought Ṁ500 YES

For legal reasons my yes bet is just a gut feeling based on modern events and the fact that covid probably slowed down them earlier

bought Ṁ500 NO

Does there have to be an actual attempt or does reporting about a person being caught while plotting an attack count?

@Arky IMHO yes if the news uses the words terrorists and drones together

@Arky it needs to be actual deployment of a drone that is reported as an act of terror/terrorism, regardless of whether there is physical damage or physical harm caused. In other words, not just someone plotting to carry out an act.

@TheNotTooDistantFuture cops raiding a terrorist cell within Paris with drones in their room does not qualify?

@TimothyBandors That would resolve to "NO"... that would be plotting terrorism, not an act of terrorism
