An army veteran has warned that ISIS is planting 'sleeper cells' in Europe and the UK to unleash war on Europe.
Dimitri Bontinck says ISIS is wanting to "take revenge against the west" and it's not the young men brandishing gun in videos online that should be feared.
Talking to the Daily Mail in an interview, the Belgian national says the "mature men" running terrorist organisations are the ones that have European countries in their sight.
"Their aim is to take revenge against the west for what they view as an all-out assault on them, and they will strike when they are ready," he told the Daily Mail.
"I've been told by very influential sources that they have sleeper cells over here, and are preparing to unleash their war in Europe."
Mr Bontinck's knowledge comes from travelling to Syria to find his son Jejoen who fled to Syria after becoming radicalised through the group Sharia4Belgium.
Jejoen denies he was in Syria because he wanted to fight for ISIS, but says he was there for humanitarian reasons and spent most of his time locked up alongside western hostages James Foley and John Cantlie.
Through his travels to find his son, Mr Bontinck had dealings with terrorist groups close to ISIS and became aware of their plans for Europe.
He also has helped rescue four young jihadists from Syria and says authorities "stigmatising and criminalising youngsters who fall in with the wrong crowd".
Jejoen will appear in court this week accused of belonging to a terrorist group. If found guilty he could be sentenced to four years in prison.

Global cooling? Snow in Sahara
A thin white layer of snow covered the dunes of Ain Sefra in Algeria. One can safely say that is not an everyday event down there.
