4 Teens In Germany Arrested For Allegedly Planning Islamic Terror Attack On Christians, Jews

 Four teenagers in Germany have been arrested for allegedly planning an Islamic terrorist attack against Christians and Jews.

Deutsche Welle, a German public state-owned international broadcaster, said that three teenagers — two girls aged 15 and 16 and a 15-year-old boy — had “glorified” ISIS and “declared themselves ready” to carry out an “Islamist-motivated terror attack” against churchgoers and police.

The suspects were arrested in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

The Associated Press reported that a fourth teenager, a 16-year-old boy in the southwestern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, was also arrested.

Police arrested the suspects on pending charges of “declaring themselves ready to commit murder and manslaughter and preparing a serious act of violence,” the report said.

The teens planned to use knives and Molotov cocktails to carry out the attacks. Investigators recovered a dagger and a machete from the suspects.


The investigation was launched after officials suspected that the 16-year-old girl was planning to leave Germany to go to Syria to fight for ISIS.

Investigators found on her cell phone messages that indicated possible targets for their Islamic terror attack included churches and synagogues in Dortmund, Duesseldorf, Cologne, and Iserlohn.

DW reported that one of the suspect’s fathers had been under investigation because they suspected he was raising money for ISIS.
