Germany – Terror attack thwarted: 2 Muslim terrorists arrested, Christmas market evacuated in Berlin
BREAKING: Police in Berlin have evacuated the city’s Christmas Market that was the scene of an ISIS massacre three years ago, after a “suspicious item” was found.
According to local sources, two Muslim terrorists from Syria have been arrested at the scene. One of the terrorists was known to the police for his involvement in bomb-making activities.
One eyewitness said police had implied that the incident “seemed to be serious”.
“Currently, our colleagues are working at the #Breitscheidplatz Christmas Market and are clearing it in order to follow up indications of a possibly suspicious object,” Berlin police tweeted.
“All visitors left the Christmas market in a calm and collected manner. Thank you. Our colleagues are now starting the search on the #Breitscheidplatz and in the Memorial Church,” the police added a short while later.
An event at the neighboring Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church was also evacuated.
On 19 December 2016, a Muslim terrorist rammed a stolen truck into the Christmas market next to the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church at Breitscheidplatz in Berlin, murdering 12 people and injuring 56 others.
Four days after the attack, the Muslim terrorist was eliminated in a shootout with police near Milan in Italy.
