Germany under terror alert: ISIS is preparing chemical attack on drinking water supplies

January 26, 2017 » Today News »

Germany’s armed forces are preparing for a chemical attack on the country’s drinking water supplies by Islamic jihadis, a government report warns.
Angela Merkel’s government issued a report stating Germany is at “high risk” of chemical attacks by “Islamist-motivated perpetrators”.

The paper, issued weeks after the Islamic State (ISIS) attack on a Berlin Christmas market which killed 12, ordered Germany’s armed forces, emergency services and intelligence agencies to prepare for action in the event of a hazardous attack.

In the report seen by Bild newspaper, it says: “A determined and well-trained terrorist group is likely to be in a position to exploit Germany’s potential chemical hazards in order to stage an attack.”

Islamist jihadis are able to “procure and use large amount of chemicals” and there is a “realistic option” of a chemical attack, the paper says.

The paper warned there is a “high-risk potential” for terrorists to use chemicals to target food and drinking water supplies in large residential buildings as well as attacking infrastructure used in the chemical industry.

In the days after the fatal attack on December 19, German immigration reports revealed he had been under police surveillance for months and authorities had tried to deport him but he did not have the right documents.

Two days after the attack German authorities received papers from the Tunisian government confirming his identity, which would have allowed Germany to deport him.

Amri stole an articulated lorry which he ploughed into the popular market in the centre of the German capital.

His use of a large vehicle put the German authorities under more scrutiny as Europol had warned just a month before ISIS leaders were calling on followers to carry out lone-wolf attacks targeting transport infrastructure.

Express.co.uk saw an article in ISIS magazine, Rumiyah, just a month before the attack which gave detailed instructions in English about how to use large trucks in terrorist attacks by targeting crowded areas.

Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel who ploughed a 19-tonne truck into crowds celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France, killing 86 revellers watching fireworks on the waterfront and injuring 434 was lauded as an example of who to follow.
