BARCELONA'S TERROR UPDATE : The failed 'Plan A' Barcelona attack which could have left HUNDREDS dead

BARCELONA’S terror death toll could have been much higher along Las Ramblas - had the ISIS terror cell's plan A worked out, it has been revealed.

Fourteen tourists and Spaniards were killed on Las Ramblas
The driver of a truck slammed into shoppers in the tourists hotspot - killing 13 and hurting 130.
Eight hours later, 68 miles away, a car attack in Cambrils left one woman dead and six injured.
Police then shot dead five jihadis.
Investigators told journalists, on the condition of anonymity, the terror cell behind the horror attack carried out their plan after a number of complications.
The depraved Daesh fanboys allegedly tried to rent a massive lorry - but did not have the correct licence.
And, a house in Alcanar which was razed to the ground in an explosion the night before the Barcelona attack, was destroyed as the group tried to load explosives into a van.
In the end, they carried out plan C - a small van ramming into crowds, without bombs and HGVs.

New York Times journalist Rukmini Callimachi‏ revealed the three plan plot twist.
She said on Twitter: “According to my source, police learned from rental car company that attackers had tried to rent a large truck.
“Investigators believe the attackers had a Plan A, a plan B and a Plan C.
“Plan A was to load the large truck with explosives & ram it causing a catastrophic explosion. That failed (because) they couldn't rent big truck.
“Plan B was to load 2 smaller vans with explosives. That failed too. They didn't know how to prep the explosive & blew up house instead
“That brought them to Plan C which was to use 2 smaller cars to ram people, first on the Ramblas, and later in the town of Cambril.”
ISIS had previously pleaded with its followers to carry out vehicle attacks.
Amaq, the terrorists media centre, supposedly based in besieged Raqqa, has been spewing out propaganda asking “lone wolves” to seek vengeance for air strikes on terrorists.
