German Arabs planned attack on Israeli embassy
Two Germans identifying as “Palestinian” Arabs were brought to a Berlin court, Channel 10 reports Wednesday, on charges of planning an attack against the Israeli Embassy and another possible Israeli target in the capital city.
The pair, 21 year-olds who answer to the names “Ali” and “Muhammad,” both support Islamic State (ISIS), according to the indictment. ISIS materials were found on the cell phone of one of the two would-be terrorists.
Ammunition was also found at their shared residence. One of their neighbors saw what he thought was an explosive charge hidden in a bucket of milk – and then called the police.
The two, according to the court, had planned the attack or attacks between December 2014 and July 2015, until their arrest.
Both deny all charges, and the trial is weighing on whether the evidence against them is solid enough for a case.
