Walid Phares: Terror Incidents Might Become Weekly Event

By    |   Tuesday, 27 Jan 2015 06:45 PM

Terrorist incidents are coming faster and faster, and it likely won't be long before they occur weekly, Middle East expert Walid Phares said Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto."

The Yemen suicide bombing on December 31 was followed by the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris on January 7. Yemen's president was forced to resign by insurgents last week, and on Tuesday, a luxury hotel in Tripoli, Libya, was attacked.

"It's going faster and faster," Phares said. "The speed is getting so high that you can expect … maybe once a week or twice a week. Basically, the jihadi organizations are now unleashed. Since ISIS took over part of Iraq and Syria, their cells are all over the place."

Libya is the hardest place to confront right now, Phares said.

"While in Syria and Iraq you know where each organization is, in Libya you have those who are connected to al-Qaida, those connected to ISIS, those still shopping for a jihadi network. And you have few parts of the Libyan secular army fighting them."
