Hamas terrorists apparently planned attacks in Germany

The terrorist organization Hamas is wreaking havoc in Gaza on a dramatic scale. But according to a media report, members here in Germany have also apparently been preparing attacks against Israeli targets. The suspects have been arrested.

According to a media report, the radical Islamic Palestinian organization Hamas was apparently planning attacks in Germany. According to the “Welt am Sonntag”, the suspected targets were the Israeli embassy in Berlin and a US military base in Rhineland-Palatinate. Maps were found on the cell phone of a suspected Hamas member arrested in Berlin in December, which suggested that the locations could be spied on, the newspaper reported, citing security authorities.

According to the newspaper report, the Lebanese-born man was arrested in the German capital in December 2023. His cell phone was confiscated. The Federal Prosecutor General accuses the man of having been involved in locating a depot for Hamas weapons in Europe from spring 2023 at the latest. According to the information, these were to be brought to Berlin for possible attacks in Europe. According to the newspaper report, the order came from Hamas military leadership cadres in Lebanon.

Three suspected members of the Palestinian organization, who were also arrested, are said to have been involved in the search for locations.

Hamas fighters killed more than 1,170 people on October 7

According to information from “Welt am Sonntag”, the contacts between Hamas supporters living in Berlin and military cadres in Lebanon are more extensive than previously thought. An analysis of articles in online media showed that there are mainly connections to the southern Lebanese city of Tyre, which is considered a stronghold of Hamas and the Lebanese Hezbollah militia.

The Federal Prosecutor General did not want to comment on the information found on the cell phone of the suspected Hamas member to “Welt am Sonntag”. A spokesman for the authority referred to ongoing investigations.

Hamas fighters carried out an unprecedented attack on Israel on October 7, brutally killing more than 1,170 people, according to Israeli sources. In addition, 252 people were taken hostage to the Gaza Strip. In response to the attack, Israel has since launched a massive military operation in the Gaza Strip. According to figures from the Hamas-controlled Ministry of Health, which cannot be independently verified, more than 35,800 people have been killed so far.
