The UEFA Champions League 2023-24 will enter its quarter-finals stage on Tuesday with European heavyweights Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Manchester City, PSG, Barcelona, Atletico de Madrid, and Borussia Dortmund among the last eight. Ahead of the UCL quarter-finals, the terrorist group, Islamic State (ISIS) launched a threat against the four stadiums hosting the first legs of the competition.

In the UCL quarter-final first leg, Premier League giants Arsenal are scheduled to host German champions Bayern Munich at the Emirates Stadium, while record 14-time UCL champions Real Madrid will host defending champions Manchester City at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Kylian Mbappe's Paris Saint-Germain are set to host Xavi's Barcelona at the Parc des Princes, while Spanish club Atletico de Madrid will host Bundesliga's Borussia Dortmund at the Civitas Metropolitan Stadium.

Ahead of the fixtures, media outlet Al Azaim Foundation, backed by the Islamic State (Daesh, ISIS), shared a poster threatening the four stadiums including the Parc des Princes, Santiago Bernabéu, Metropolitano, and Emirates Stadium, scheduled to host the first leg of the quarter-finals clashes in the UCL, with the message, "Kill them all."

On March 22 this year at the Crocus City Hall, a large concert hall in Moscow, the Islamic State conducted their most recent terror attack. Several armed men, dressed in camouflage uniforms, entered the concert hall and fired automatic weapons at the audience, which resulted in 143 deaths and around 200 wounded.
