Five ISIS terrorists arrested in France last Sunday were plotting to carry out an attack on France in the coming week, French authorities announced on Friday.

“An imminent attack was thwarted,” Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins told a news conference, according to Reuters.

Four of the suspects were arrested in Strasbourg while the other was detained in Marseille on Sunday.

“A Strasbourg commando team, and also a man arrested in Marseille, were given instructions to acquire arms,” Molins detailed.

“The instructions were given by a commander from the Iraqi-Syrian region via encrypted apps.”

According to the Paris prosecutor they were planning to carry out attacks against police in Paris as well as the iconic Disneyland theme park in the city.

In the house raided in Strasbourg, police found documents written by hand which pledged allegiance to the ISIS (ISIL, IS, Daesh) terrorists.

Four of the suspects are French, the fifth is Moroccan.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) launched an offensive against ISIS’ main stronghold in Syria, Raqqa, earlier this month after US authorities say they received intelligence that the group was planning attacks on western targets from there.

France has seen several terror attacks on its soil, including more than 129 people killed in Paris one year ago.

France remains under a state of emergency.
