German Police Conduct ISIS-Linked Raids in Mainz
Mon, February 8, 2016
Police officer conducted raids in two apartments in Mainz in western Germany in what appears to have been a search for jihadis with possible links to the Islamic State.
While no material was found suggesting plans for a terror attack, it appears at least one of the residents of the apartments was connected to ISIS.
The man in question is a 32-year old known only as Bassem. Investigators believe he may have been a commander for ISIS in Syria.
The operation followed similar raids in Berlin and North Rhine-Westphalia. These were part of a hunt for three Algerians also believed to have Islamic State ties.
