Islamist plot to attack Amsterdam Synagogue uncovered

A plot by a Islamic terrorist cell to attack a synagogue in Amsterdam was foiled by Dutch intelligence authorities, according to a report by the Dutch daily, De Telegraaf.

De Telegraaf obtained a dossier from the Dutch Criminal Intelligence Agency (TFI), which described a “James Bond-like plan” to attack a synagogue and a bank.

An individual of Moroccan descent was identified as a member of the cell planning to carry out the terrorist attacks. He and other individuals associated with the Arrayan Mosque in northern Amsterdam are suspected by the TFI of involvement in Islamist radicalization and jihad-related activities.
