A clearer picture began to emerge Thursday of the investigation leading to the arrest of three Syrian men who were allegedly planning to carry out a terrorist attack in the western German city of Düsseldorf.
The terror plot was uncovered because a fourth Syrian man, identified as Saleh A., voluntarily turned himself into authorities in Paris on February 1 and admitted to the plot, officials said.
A spokesman for the French ministry of justice said Saleh A. told authorities he had “information about a sleeper cell” of the “Islamic State” (IS) group that was prepared “to strike in Germany.”
Saleh A. was interrogated repeatedly by anti-terror experts, charged with aiding a terrorist organization and taken into custody. Germany is currently seeking his extradition.
How many billions has the west spent collectively “accommodating’ Islam?
