Police in Germany have shot dead a jihadi who was trying to assail police officers with a knife in the west German city of Gelsenkirchen. This is now a daily occurrence in the UK and Europe, the predictable consequence of the hijrah (Muslim migration).
‘Allahu Akbar’: Police Shoot Dead Turkish Citizen Who Attacked Officers With Knife
By Oliver JJ Lane, Breitbart, January 6, 2020:
German police shot dead a Turkish citizen Sunday evening after he allegedly attempted to attack officers with a knife and other weapons in the western city of Gelsenkirchen.
Police officers came under attack Sunday night in Gelsenkirchen, North Rhine-Westphalia, when a man attacked officers standing with their patrol car with what local reports described only as an “object”. When the officers noticed the man was also carrying a knife, they ordered him to drop his weapons but he continued to attempt to attack the police.
A police officer then shot the assailant, killing the man, Deutshe Welle reports.
German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reports claims — classified as unproven “rumours” by a police spokesman — Monday that the attacker had shouted the Islamist battle cry “Allahu Akbar” [God/Allah is greater] as he attacked.
Whether or not there was a terror motive, the assailant was already known to police, having been investigated for violent crimes in the past. Although the dead suspect has not yet been named, he was identified as a Turkish citizen who had since come to reside in Gelsenkirchen.
The possible attack came just a day after the German security services reviewed the nation’s terror threat warning level, a response to the death of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Iraq earlier in the week. Revised guidelines were issued to police across the country and “appropriate security measures” were being taken to protect American and Jewish targets within the country.
The attack also followed two similar knife attacks in France in the days prior. On Friday, officers shot dead a man who allegedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” while stabbing members of the public in Villejuif city park, while on Sunday French police shot and wounded a knifeman shouting the same phrase in the city of Metz.
