British Prime Minister David Cameron says security forces have foiled about seven terrorist attacks in the UK in the last six months.
“Our security and intelligence services have stopped something like seven attacks” since June, Cameron said on Monday.
He also said that British intelligence services are aware of terrorist cells in Syria that are “radicalizing” Britons in order to carry out terror raids on British territory.
The premier said the only way to defeat Daesh terrorists is to “get a political settlement in Syria that enables you then to permanently degrade and destroy” the terror group.
According to media reports, the British government is to recruit an extra 1,900 security and intelligence forces to intensify the fight against terrorist groups following the Friday attacks in Paris, which killed at least 132 people.
