French police investigating a suspected bomb factory near Paris found more ingredients……Three suspects have been arrested…..The arrests raised questions about whether the suspects might be linked to a jihadist cell in Spain which carried out two vehicle attacks in Barcelona
“More than 230 people have been killed in terror attacks in France since the start of 2015. The country has been in a state of emergency for almost two years.”
Despite the magnitude of such deadly attacks by jihadists, and despite the grim reality of the relentlessness of jihadists and Islamic supremacists, there still is not a global recognition of the truth of this jihadist war against the West; however, there have been many declarations about “Islamophobia” to distract people from the problem, shut down truth-tellers, and aid the jihadist agenda. “Jihadist ideologue Abu Musab al-Suri” argued in his manifesto The Call to Global Islamic Resistance that “conducting attacks on European soil, the ‘soft underbelly of the West,’ would strengthen extreme-right politics there, allowing jihadists to convince European Muslims that there is no coexistence to be found on a racist, xenophobic continent.” Instead, European authorities have cracked harder on resistance to their policies than they have on jihad activity itself.
“Police discover bomb-making lab in Paris suburb raid” France 24, September 7, 2017:
French police investigating a suspected bomb factory near Paris found more ingredients on Thursday which could have been used to make the explosive device known as TATP. Three suspects have been arrested.
The ingredients were found during a search of an enclosed parking space belonging to the owner of the flat in the Parisian suburb of Villejuif where police found bomb-making materials the day before.
On Wednesday police located gas canisters and electrical wiring, along with similar ingredients required for the TATP explosive, commonly used by the Islamic State (IS) group.
Police believe the men were preparing attacks and had made calls to Syria, a minister said Thursday.
Anti-terror police launched raids following a tip-off from a worker at the building who has been praised for his “citizen’s reflex” for reporting suspicious activity.
The Paris daily Le Parisien reported that the workman was a plumber working to fix a recurrent leak……..
The arrests raised questions about whether the suspects might be linked to a jihadist cell in Spain which carried out two vehicle attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils last month.
Some of the extremists behind the violence in Spain mostly Moroccan nationals who were also preparing bombs made with TATP visited Paris on August 11 and 12, about a week before their deadly rampage.
“It is possible there were links but honestly I don’t know,” Collomb said.
The Spain attackers stayed in a hotel in the Parisian suburb of Malakoff a short drive from where the suspected bomb factory was discovered on Wednesday in Villejuif.
After buying a camera and leaving their hotel, Collomb said the Spain jihadists “spent a long time in front of the Eiffel Tower… We have it all from their phone data”.
France has been under a state of emergency since IS group gunmen launched a series of simultaneous raids on bars, the national stadium and the Bataclan concert hall in Paris in November 2015, leaving 130 people dead.
Since those atrocities and a truck attack in Nice in July 2016 that killed 86 people, France has suffered a string of smaller assaults mainly targeting security forces.
