    MOSCOW, October 5 (RIA Novosti) - The militant group "Islamic State" (IS) is planning to send its terrorists to European countries in the guise of refugees, Germany's Bild reported Sunday referencing intelligence records.

    According to the newspaper, the IS plans were unfolded by the American intelligence during the decoding of the talks between the leaders of the militant group.

    Specifically, the monitoring of the talks revealed that the terrorist groups are not allowed to board planes due to strict controls at airports.

    The newspaper stated that the terrorists, disguised as refugees, are planning to enter Turkey first and then travel to Western European countries such as Germany for the purpose of carrying out attacks.

    A spokesperson for Germany's Interior Minister told Bild that Germany remains the focus of the jihadist group, posing serious threats to the internal security of the country.

    No particular information is available on the IS plans of attacks discovered by the American intelligence, the newspaper stated.

    The IS, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), has been fighting the Syrian government since 2012. In June 2014, the group extended its attacks to northern and western Iraq, declaring a caliphate on the territories over which it had control.
