Explosives, weapons, plans for war from the religion of peace.

These daily acts of terror are met with something in more terrigying – denial, delusion and dawah.

Denmark: 20 arrested in thwarted Islamist plot

i24NEWS – AFP, December 11, 2019, 1:44 PM

Islamist-inspired militants said to have sought components for manufacturing explosives, weapons

Danish police arrested 20 suspects in a large-scale country-wide operation that saw the country thwart an Islamist terror attack, officials announced on Wednesday.

“Police searched 20 addresses and arrested 20 people”, Copenhagen police chief Jorgen Bergen Skov said at a press conference.

The police did not go in depth on the exact target or targets the suspects were planning to go after.

They announced, however, that the alleged Islamists were acquiring components for manufacturing explosives and weapons.

The suspects will be brought before a judge on Thursday for closed-door hearings.

According to Denmark’s intelligence chief, Denmark’s terror threat assessment will not be reviewed after the operation, remaining at ‘serious.’

Denmark was last hit by militant attacks in 2015 when Copenhagen’s Great Synagogue was targeted in a shooting which saw one security officer killed after an earlier attack on a conference on freedom of expression also left one person dead.

Five police officers were injured in the twin attacks. Officers gunned down and killed the 22-year-old perpetrator Omar El-Hussein, a Danish citizen of Palestinian origin who had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (IS) group.
