Denmark: Muslim terrorist sentenced for planning mass murder in Copenhagen
A Syrian Muslim terrorist who was seeking asylum in Sweden has been sentenced to 12-years in prison for planning to explode one or more bombs in Copenhagen and stabbing random people with kitchen knives.
The Copenhagen City Court said Monday Moyed Al Zoebi, 32, acted on behalf of ISIS.
The Muslim terrorist had an accomplice, Dieab Khadigah. He was described as a ‘Syrian refugee’ and was sentenced in Germany in July 2017 to a prison term of six-and-a-half years.
When the German police arrested him, he was reportedly carrying 17,000 matches, 17 batteries, fireworks, two kitchen knives, and six walkie-talkies that Al Zoebi had ordered.
After an internet chat, they were to gather in Copenhagen in November 2016 for the terror attack.
In December 2017 the Copenhagen police said they arrested a Muslim terrorist jointly with the Danish Security and Intelligence Service over a failed attack which he plotted with another 21-year-old Muslim terrorist in November 2016.
The two terrorists “wanted to attack people with knives and thereafter detonate one or several explosives, which failed when the accomplice was denied entry into Denmark and arrested by the German police”.
