ISIS chiefs have stashed away millions of pounds to fund a new wave of attacks against Britain and the West – as the death cult faces being stamped out once and for all.

UN experts believe the group has up to £230m stored in “bulk” – with one report warning it will be used to fund “larger-scale attacks once the opportunity arises.”

The warning comes as ISIS face being finally routed in Syria as fighters supported by British and US special forces close in for the kill.

Yesterday Kurdish-led coalition forces battled to clear the village of Baghouz, where the remaining jihadis are holed up in fortified positions.

But the operations was slowed by land mines and sniper fire as fighters desperately battled to hold off the onslaught.

A UN Security Council report into the threat posed by ISIS warned the group still has up to 18,000 armed terrorists ready to fight to the death.


It added that the group could be storing its financial reserves in “neighbouring countries for safekeeping” – with millions more invested in legitimate businesses.

More cash is thought to be bulk-stored at strategic locations in Iraq and Syria.

The report also claims that leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is still alive – despite claims that he was killed in a drone strike last summer.
