German police foil Muslim jihad plot to use remote controlled aircraft filled with explosives as guided missiles
There were arrests of jihadis in France today as well. One might almost get the idea that there is a jihad against Europe — naaah, that would be “Islamophobic.”
Police in Germany have raided dozens of addresses to foil an Islamist terror plot intending to use remote controlled model aircraft filled with explosives to be flown into targets.
Armed officers of the specialist G9G units raided homes in Stuttgart, Munich and Dachau after receiving information that at least one assassination attempt was being planned using the model planes as guided missiles.
Technical materials and paperwork were seized at several addresses while prosecutors spoke of plans for a ‘seditious outrage’.
German intelligence officers have been warning for some time of a home-grown attack inside the country’s borders as more and more Islamists return from Jihadist training camps in Pakistan ready to commit terrorist acts.
As well as the addresses in southern Germany, an Internet service provider in the state of Saxony was also raided. At least two men are in custody and authorities say the operations will continue as more intelligence is gathered.
No information was given about likely targets or exactly which Jihadist organisation the suspects are affiliated with.
One of the addresses raided was at the Olympic Village in Munich, scene of the 1972 Olympic massacre when fanatics of the Black September movement stormed the living quarters of Israeli athletes. All eleven hostages later died in a shootout at Munich Airport.
