Germany - Police Foil Berlin Islamic Extremists Attack On Marathon

One day after the attack in Munster, German police were quick to report that they had foiled a terror plot in the Berlin area, where a group of Islamic extremists were planning to knife multiple participants of the half marathon race.

The men had already chosen various locations around the track and were caught plotting a large scale terror attack. In a surprise twist, the main culprit turned out to be a ‘friend’ of terrorist Anis Amri (the Tunisian who had sworn allegiance to ISIS and then killed 12 people and injured dozens more when he drove a truck into a Christmas market in Berlin in December 2016 in what remains to date the largest terrorist attack by the Islamic death cult on German soil).

The Berlin prosecutor’s office stated that: “There were isolated indications that those arrested, aged between 18 and 21 years, were participating in the preparation of a crime in connection with this event.”

Berlin police revealed that they had received a tip-off from a foreign intelligence service and then did around-the-clock observation of the main suspect for some two weeks before he was arrested.

The apartments of the suspects in Charlottenburg and Neukoelln (districts of the German capital Berlin) were raided and two vehicles impounded as a result.
