Terror Attacks in Europe

One that, fortunately, didn't go off. Interesting to see the web of connections though.

'German authorities say police have arrested four suspected members of the Islamic State group alleged to be planning an attack on American military facilities.

'Federal prosecutors said the suspects were arrested by tactical police units early Wednesday at various locations in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia. They identified the men as Azizjon B., Muhammadali G., Farhodshoh K. and Sunatullokh K. — all citizens of Tajikistan. The suspects’ surnames weren’t released for privacy reasons. The men’s alleged leader, a 30-year-old Tajik man identified only as Ravsan B., has been in jail since March 2019 on unspecified charges. All suspects will be charged with membership in a terrorist organization.

'Prosecutors said the men joined the Islamic State group in January 2019 and were instructed to form a cell in Germany. They reportedly first planned to carry out an attack in Tajikistan but later shifted their target to Germany, including U.S. Air Force bases in the country and a person they deemed critical of Islam. Throughout, they are alleged to have been in contact with two high-ranking IS figures in Syria and Afghanistan.

'Prosecutors said the group had already obtained firearms and ammunition to carry out their attacks, while Ravsan B. had ordered materials to build an explosive device. In order to pay for their plans, Ravsan B. allegedly accepted a $40,000 contract to assassinate someone in Albania, but the contract slaying failed.

When scumbags like this aren't plotting to murder and maim in the name of their religion, what do they actually do in the host nation that they must hate so much?

We are absolute mugs for tolerating these freeloading wasters who contribute nothing to our societies and fail to integrate and get with the program.

That will make ISIS unpopular with the twitchy curtain brigade, not planning to keep to social distancing!
 
Well done to the Spanish plod! If facemasks were to become compulsory in Europe, it would be orders of magnitude more difficult than the burka/hijab issue for ID'ing criminals. It will be interesting to know how he crossed into Spain (private boat?), as someone's ID checks are obviously not up to snuff.

'One of Europe’s most wanted ISIS terrorists, British former rap artist Abdel Majed Abdel Bary, has been caught in Spain.

'Spanish anti-terror police raided a rental apartment in Almeria on Tuesday and arrested Abdel Bary, who had recently entered the country. He and two associates used the coronavirus outbreak to sneak into the country and wore surgical masks to disguise their appearance, officials said. Video of the raid shows armed police outside the apartment before apprehending the men and leading them out with their heads covered. The General Directorate of Police said the man was a “high-ranking”, Egyptian-born member of ISIS. “National police officers have carried out an anti-terrorist operation that has culminated in the arrest in Almería of one of the most wanted foreign terrorist fighters in Europe,” it said. “The detainee spent several years in the Syrian-Iraqi conflict zone and has both very peculiar personality traits and an extremely violent criminal profile, which caught the attention of the European police and intelligence services.”

'Abdel Bary, 28, once posed with a severed head in Syria and promised death to all westerners. He was raised in London and left Britain to join ISIS in 2013. Abdel Bary later left the group in 2015 after sustained coalition bombing and has been on the run since. His father, Adel Abdel Bary Sr, believed to be closely linked to Osama bin Laden, was jailed in the US in 2015 over a plot to blow up an embassy in Africa. He was extradited from the UK in 2012 and sentenced to 25 years for conspiring to kill Americans in the 1998 embassy bombings, which left 224 people dead.

Authorities are checking if the two others arrested in the Almeria raid had also returned from Syria. They said the terrorist and his companions used “iron-clad” security measures to try to avoid detection. “After a complex investigation it was possible to determine the circumstances of his arrival on the Almería coast, as well as his subsequent movements, finally achieving his location and arrest,” police said. “Those arrested adopted iron-clad security measures, both in their journey from North Africa to our territory and in the movements they made in Almería.

“The detainees, once in Spain, adapted their behaviour to the situation as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, making few exits, leaving separately and always with masks to avoid being detected. The operation is still open and, at this time, intensive work is being done to verify the identity of the other two detainees and the ultimate reasons for their presence in Spain."

'Police said the operation was conducted in collaboration with the National Intelligence Centre. “Agents searched an apartment where the three detainees were hiding in the Andalusian city,” they said. “The investigation was carried out thanks to international co-operation when agents specialised in the fight against terrorism, in collaboration with the National Intelligence Centre, were working on the possibility that this foreign fighter intended to return to Europe through our territory. “This operation is a sign that, despite the health crisis, the National Police and the judiciary continue to collaborate actively in the fight against terrorism.”


 
Terrorist, or lockdown loony?

Armed cops have raced to reports of a man firing shots from a balcony in the UK.

'Police urged people in Chatham, Kent, to stay away as they deal with frantic residents' claims a man is wielding weapons on a balcony.

'A spokesman said: “Kent Police was called at 8.35am on Wednesday, April 22, to a disturbance at a flat on Dock Head Road, Chatham. Members of the public reported seeing a man on a balcony with weapons and patrols, including armed officers, are at the scene making inquiries.”

'Kent Police tweeted: “We are currently assisting @KPTacOps with an incident at #Dockside in #Chatham. Numerous roads closures in place and therefore we kindly ask you to stay away from the area. Thank you for understanding in this matter.”

'Cops have surrounded the Dockside Outlet Shopping Centre, near to the flat where the man was spotted. A police helicopter is said to be hovering over the area.

'A neighbour who lives close to the mall told Kent Online: “There was a lot of banging just over an hour ago, I just assumed it was construction workers. “There was armed police outside The Range who waved everyone back, they moved towards the noise. Staff at The Range have been trying to catch everyone and get them into the shop. Someone across the way shouted about someone having a gun. There's a police helicopter flying above.”



E2A; Seems more like the latter. Well, he was apparently at 'The Range'.

'Video of shots being fire from flats near a shopping centre have emerged as police arrest a man for fire arm offences. Officers are at the scene near The Range on the far edge of Dockside Outlet Shopping Centre in Chatham.

'A man in his 30s has been arrested on suspicion of firearms offences and four suspected imitation firearms have been found.'

Firing at the Range - who would have thought it. Must be an ex-soldier. Range outlets usually have a cafe...

I wonder if they have stew on the menu...

In a move that is bound to upset hard left Corbynistas, Germany has banned Hezbollah activity on German soil.

German government bans Hezbollah — Interior Ministry
Authorities have designated Hezbollah a terrorist organization and banned its activity on German soil. Police are currently conducting raids on four associations linked to the Islamist group.

Oooh they're going to be in trouble with Jezbollah, will they be able to cope with him writing an angry missive from his allotment ?
 
Hopefully a hoax, on the first day of reduced lockdown restrictions.

'Sweepings with sniffer dogs are currently taking place at the Brussels Central station after the local police of the Brussels Capital-Ixelles zone received a bomb threat.

“At 4:50 PM, the police received a phone call with a threat towards the central station,” the federal police told De Morgen. “Of course, we’re taking this very seriously at the moment.”

'At the moment, the police are clearing the station, and there are sweepings with sniffer dogs going on. Metro and train traffic has also been shut down for the time being.

'This story is developing.'

 
I hope it's nice and crowded in his place of incarceration, though doubtless there will now be calls to repatriate him to the UK on humanitarian grounds.

'A web designer from Cardiff has been jailed for seven years in Spain for financing and supporting terrorism.

'Spain's national court in Madrid heard Ataul Haque and his brother Siful Sujan transferred funds and hi-tech equipment to the so called Islamic State (IS) group in Iraq and Syria. Haque fled to Spain in 2015 after Sujan was killed in a drone strike in Syria.

'Haque was found guilty of financing and supporting terrorism but cleared of being a member of a terrorist group. The 37-year-old was sentenced on 10 May after a three-day trial at the Audiencia Nacional on 27 April.

'Haque, who was originally from Bangladesh, was arrested in 2017 after his home in Merida, in western Spain, was raided by police. Police found evidence of large money transfers, Salafist and jihadi propaganda, and spreadsheets on drone technology during the raid. Haque was listed as a director of the now dissolved Cardiff-based company Ibacstel.'
