ISIS could obtain nuclear weapon from Pakistan, warns India


ISIS nuclear weaponThe Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group could obtain a nuclear weapon from “states like Pakistan”, India’s defense Rao Inderjit singh has said.

According to Bloomberg, Singh made the comments on the sidelines of Shangri-La regional security conference in Singapore.

He said “With the rise of Isis in West Asia, one is afraid to an extent that perhaps they might get access to a nuclear arsenal from states like Pakistan.”

This comes as the terror group claimed it is closer to buy a nuclear from Pakistan and smuggling it into the United States.

The latest claim by the terror group is seen as yet another propaganda which was published in terror group’s magazine – Dabiq.

The article titled “The Perfect Storm” is attributed to the British hostage John Cantlie who been held captive for more than two years, has appeared in multiple propaganda videos and articles for the extremist group.

Photojournalist Cantlie is regularly used in the terror group’s propaganda and has appeared in a number of videos, including a YouTube series called “Lend Me Your Ears”. He has been held a hostage by Isis for more than two years.

It claimed ISIS has billions of dollars in the bank and describes a ‘hypothetical operation’ which involves it buying a nuclear bomb ‘through weapons dealers with links to corrupt officials’ in Pakistan.

The article also described militant Islamist groups such as Boko Haram, which recently pledged allegiance to Isis, uniting across the Middle East, Africa and Asia to create one global movement.
