Title: Germany terror attacks
Post by: stoffel on 25 July 2016, 12:39:37

May 2016,

A German man shouting 'Allahu Akbar' stabbed one person to death and slashed three others in a dawn attack at a railway station in a sleepy commuter town near Munich.
The attack raised fears that Germany, which has not suffered a major terror attack on the scale of those in neighbouring France and Belgium, was now being targeted by Islamist extremists.
Police said that the 27-year-old unemployed carpenter named by local media as Paul H. was mentally disturbed and stressed that he had no known links to Islamist militant groups.
Police confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that the suspect would be held in a psychiatric hospital and not in a prison cell.
The man launched his knifing spree around 5:00 am local time in Grafing, 20 miles east of the Bavarian state capital.
He stabbed one man on a platform, another on a stopped train, then ran outside the station to slash two more.
One victim, a 56-year-old man, later died of his injuries in hospital.
According to reports, the attacker was barefoot and the bloody footprints seen in pictures of the station are his.
He told police he had taken drugs before the attack and claimed he had removed his shoes because "he felt bugs on his feet that had caused blisters and were generating intense heat", Police Director Lothar Köhler said.
Witnesses said the assailant, who was arrested at the scene shortly after the attack,  shouted "Allahu Akbar" ('God is Greatest' in Arabic) and some said that they also heard him shout "infidels must die".
But police said that the assault appeared to be the work of a mentally unstable person, and that the attacker had received psychiatric treatment just two days ago and had confessed to using drugs.
"From what we know so far, he was a lone criminal ... There is no indication that he was part of an Islamist network," said Petra Sandles, of Bavaria's office of criminal investigations.
The attack, even if it turns out not to be Islamist motivated, will heighten fears in Germany that the country is being targeted by extremists.
With about 260 of the more than 800 home-grown radicals who have joined jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq having since returned to Germany, ministers have warned an attack is possible and security services are on alert.


An Afghan refugee attacked a Hong Kong family in a train with a knife and an axe.
He was identified as a 17-year-old Afghan refugee who had been living in the nearby town of Ochsenfurt.He came to Germany about two years ago on his own.
His victims, a Hong Kong family on holiday in Germany. Four of them were injured, a 62-year-old man, his 58-year-old wife, their daughter, 27, and her boyfriend, 31. The 17-year-old son travelling with them was not hurt.
The father and boyfriend had tried to protect the other members of the group.
After he fled the train police shot him dead when he tried to attack the officers.
Authorities claimed the man was inspired by ISIS.
A flag was found in his house.
Some witnesses quoted by German media said they had heard him shout "Allahu akbar" ("God is great") during the attack.



A 19 year old Afghan refugee killed 9 people and wounded 35 others in a shooting spree.
According to police reports he asked people to come to a Mc Donalds retaurant inviting them with social media.
There he started shooting teenagers, he fled to a nearby moll hunted by police and special police units.
After a while he committed suicide.
No connections were found that could link the incident to extremist groups.
Police said the perp suffered from depressions.
He was in Germany for two years living with his parents.

Police arrest Syrian man  in Germany.
An attacker has  killed one woman and injured five more people in the city of Reutlingen in southwest Germany. Officials have confirmed the man was arrested after a citizen hit him with a car.
The attacker sparked panic after killing a woman near a Turkish fast-food kiosk in downtown Reutlingen.
Five people were reportedly wounded in the attack and brought to the hospital. Two women, ages 51 and 54-years-old, suffered head wounds while another 51-year-old sustained a forearm injury.
Another woman and a man were also hospitalized for shock.
A car driver spotted the attacker running away from the scene and hit him with his vehicle, allowing police to grab hold of the suspect and make an arrest.
Police stated that the suspect is a 21-year-old male refugee from Syria who is known to authorities for previous acts of violence. The suspect suffered serious injuries and will undergo police questioning after receiving medical treatment.


Ansbach, Bayern.

Another "refugee" a syrian man aged 27 who asked for asylum in Germany two years ago committed an attack.
This time at a concert.
Fortunately security stopped him before he could enter the terrain because he did not have a ticket.
He blew himself up using a rucksack with explosives, injuring 15 people, 3 of them are in critical conditions.
The mans asylum was rejected probably because he had a history of crime involving drugs.
He was supposed to be suicidal, and received psychological help.
He could not be sent back to Syria because of the war and was allowed to stay, allthough some reporters found out that he was to be sent back to Bulgaria.
Again this attack is blamed to pscycological causes, again no ties to extremist groups.
Pretty convieniant for the government so they can keep denying there is a problem.

A bad day for democracy and freedom, attacks in Turkey and Switzerland and now in Berlin.
12 people are dead and dozens injured.
A man hijacked a Polish truck and stabbed the driver moments before the attack when the driver tried to avoid that.
He than drove into crowds at a busy Christmas market near the famous Gedachtniskirche.
After his cowardly attack he shot the Polish driver and fled the scene.
Police arrested a Pakistani aged 23 about 2 km from the truck shortly after the attack.
But this man claimed not to be the killer, subsequently he was released from custody after proven to be innocent.
The killer was a Tunesian refugee aged 24 named Anis Amri. He has been shot and killed by Italian police in Milan.
He was on the run for four days.
Amri had 10 different passports, police is busy with an investigation why he was caught in Italy, why he took the train to Italy.

Essen, Oberhausen,

Due to a terrorisme alert a large mall in Essen, Germany was closed by the police.
A thorough search was conducted, the mall is safe now but remains closed untill monday.
An estimated 60.000 people visit this mall with over 200 stores and restaurants every weekend.
Police spokesman told the press that 2 men have been arrested in Oberhausen.
1 at a house in that town and another in an internet cafe.
They had contacts with a foreign member of IS according to the police, this man gave the order to set off a bomb in Essen.
He also provided a guide how to make a bomb.

Its the third time since 2016 that Essen is a target.
In april 2016 two Turks attacked a Sikh wedding with a bomb causing 3 injured people and a policeman was stabbed in his neck some weeks later.

Soccerteam Borussia Dortmund was the target for a new terrorist attack on tuesday.
3 explosions rocked the bus the players were in.
They had just left their hotel on the way to the stadium for the Champions League match against AS Monaco.
The explosives were placed around the hotel.
The tires and the windows of the bus were completely destroyed.
Defender Bartra was injured by glass and suffered from a broken wrist.
One of the escorting police officers was also injured, he is still in hospital.
The supporters had to stay in the stadium untill all safe sign was given by the police.
The Monaco fans sang songs and clapped their hands in support of the Dortmund team, many could stay with German supporters who organized beds for French supporters so they could be able to watch the game on wednesday.

Responsiblility has not been claimed but many believe islamic based terrorists are responsible, some blamed right-wing hooligans.

Police found a letter near the justice department in which the writers claimed to have been responsible for the attack.
The letter started with the words: 'in the name of Allah', the writer stated that all famous Germans would be targeted unless the Germans stopped with their military support to the coalition and he also demanded Rammstein airbase being shut down.
Police didnt give more details about the letter and its origine.

Wednesday morning a suspect was arrested with islamic appearance, this proved to be ...how surprising.... a 25 year old Iraqi.
The guy wasnt responsible for the attack but he proved to be the leader of a gang in Iraq that kidnapped and killed people, he remains in custody.

Uefa and Fifa officials reacted in shock.
Barcelona, Bartras former club, spoke friendly words in support of the Spanish international.

21 april,

Police said they now have arrested the man responsible, it is a 28 year old Russian, Sergej W.
His motive was financial. With the attack he hoped the stocks for the soccerclub would go down so he could make a profit.
More details were given, the man used 3 explosive devices filled with metal pins attached to the gate at the hotels entrance.
They were set off with a remote control, he had a room in the same hotel. Detail, the guy did not know when Borussia had to play so he booked for a week......
The shrapnell hit the bus but because they were placed to high fortunately they didnt do much harm to the players and the staff in the buss.

Another attack in Germany, this time in Hamburg.
Scene of the attack was an Edeka supermarket in the Barmbek area.
A man carrying a machette suddenly went inside the supermarket and attacked customers inside.
He injured 6 and killed 1 person.
After the attack he ran away but was followed and quickley disarmed and overpowered by witnesses, these people also alerted police.
The purp was photographed with a bloody hood over his head.
Other eyewitnesses reported the man shouted Allah Akbar.
By now its shown that the man, a 26 year old "refugee or asylum seeker" from The United Arab Emirates.
The meir of Hamburg said religious grounds could be a motive....after all he shouted Allah AKbar.
But...how supprisingly the had purp had mental issues.
And so again another terrorist attack is swept under the matras.

More news to follow!

German police detained six Syrians suspected of planning an attack using weapons or explosives on behalf of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant group, prosecutors said.
Police detained the suspects aged between 20 and 28 during raids in the cities of Kassel, Hanover, Essen and Leipzig, the general prosecutor's office in Frankfurt said in a statement.
Some 500 police officers took part in the raids, during which eight apartments were searched.
Four of the suspects arrived in Germany in December 2014 and two arrived the following year. All six had applied for asylum.
The prosecutor's office did not say if their asylum applications had been approved.
Prosecutors said the six Syrians "are suspected of being members of the foreign terrorist organisation that calls itself Islamic State (IS)", using an alternative acronym for ISIS.
It is the second time this month that Syrians have been arrested on suspicion of planning militant violence, there target may have been the Essen x-mas market..
Earlier this month, a 19-year-old Syrian man was detained on suspicion of planning a bomb attack.
The arrest comes one month before the first anniversary of an attack in Berlin by a failed Tunisian asylum seeker who killed 12 people by ploughing a truck into a Christmas market.
Concrete blocks have been installed around Christmas markets at several central squares in the capital this year before the festive season opens in a couple of weeks..

In Berlin today Turkish owned buidings and a mosque have been attacked and torched, leaving most citizens in shock.
Nobody was hurt in the attacks but the damage was huge.
There are no reports who claimed the attacks but the purps must probably be looked for within the Kurdish community in Germany.

Police special forces units in Germany have arrested six men, one of whom was suspected of planning knife attacks at the Berlin half-marathon on Sunday.
German national newspaper Die Welt reports that the main suspect is said to have “planned to kill spectators and participants” and possessed two knives that had been specially sharpened on purpose.
Welt claims the main suspect was linked to Anis Amri, the Tunisian man suspected of hijacking a truck and deliberately driving into a crowd of people at a Berlin Christmas market in 2016.
Amri was shot dead in Italy on December 23, four days after the terror attack that killed 12 people and injured dozens of others.
Welt says the main suspect in the foiled Berlin half-marathon plot “wanted to avenge the death of Amri.”
The police confirmed the arrests to Welt, but no further details were provided.
The arrests were made just one day after Germany’s Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said the government intended to do the utmost to protect its citizens. Reuters quote Seehofer to have stressed that: “We have again experienced that… absolute security is unfortunately not possible.”
Seehofer made the comments in Münster, where a 48-year-old man steered his Volkswagen bus into a group of people on Saturday, injuring 20 and killing two. The man then shot himself dead.
He is not believed to be linked with IS.
Earlier in december 2017 there were arrests among friends of Anis.

On Tuesday morning a 24-year-old woman’s life still hung in the balance after she was stabbed on Saturday in the town of Burgwedel in Lower Saxony. After undergoing an emergency operation she was placed in an artificial coma.
The woman and her boyfriend had reportedly become involved in an argument with a group of three teenagers from Syria.
When the situation turned aggressive, the woman attempted to intervene, but one of the teenagers pulled out a knife and stabbed her.

On the same day in Bochum a 15-year-old schoolboy was stabbed during a fight involving around 20 teenagers. A 16-year-old from Syria was arrested over the attack. The victim was treated in hospital but his situation is not life threatening.

A day earlier, at Wiesbaden central station an argument escalated between two groups of men.
One of them pulled a knife and left three others injured.
The suspected culprit is from Afghanistan.

In Flensburg an Afghan teenager was arrested early this month on suspicion of stabbing a girl a year his junior to death. The teenager was said to have often visited his victim before the murder. That crime followed another brutal murder in December in the town of Kandel in Rhineland Palatinate where a 15-year-old girl was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, also an asylum seeker from Afghanistan.

And in Berlin early this month an Iraqi teenage German boy was arrested on suspicion of murdering a 14-year-old girl.
She was found dead in her apartment with several stab wounds.

At least seven knife attacks were recorded last weekend alone.
The prevalence of asylum seekers as suspects in these crimes has given voice to those who say that the government's liberal refugee policies have made the country less safe.
At the moment no numbers are given about how people were miuredered ( knife or gun or other)
For now a growing range of incidents with knifes occur, and most of them are committed by Asylumseekers.
The series of bloody incidents over the weekend come in the wake of two murderous stabbings by refugees in recent months, at least one of which appears to have been motivated by jealousy.
Its obvious that Merkels words, we can fix this, are no longer valid and there is a huge problem in our countries regarding the so called migrants.
How long before people take justice in their own hands and vigilants will roam the streets?

And yes another week of terrorattacks.

In two villages in the east people were stabbed by 'ímmigrants'.
In Chemnitz a man coming to the aid of a woman was stabbed and died.
An Iraqi and a Syrian were arrested.
And in Kohlen a 22 year old German died of heartfailure after being stabbed by an Afghan.
In this case the German also came to the aid of a woman who was being attacked by three Afghans.

Wir schaffen das......


And again, again, again a new day a new attack.
In the city of Koln, this time at the railroad station police ended a terrorist attack that started with arson and resulted in a hostagetaking.
The purp was shot by the police and was hospitalized.
Two people were injured.

The attack occurred in the afternoon at the Mc Donalds at Kolns busy station.
Here the cowardly attack    started when the man threw a molotovcocktail causing minor burns to his first victim , a 14 year old girl.
But the restaurants sprinklers worked well and put out the flames.
The man than fled taking an other woman hostage inside the stations pharmacy.
He taped some gas canisters to the womans body.

After futile attempts to negotiate with the man the police attacked when he wanted to set the woman on fire.
Using flashbangs police charged the pharmacy and shot and hit him several times. At that moment he was armed with a (fake?) pistol.
The terrorist was badly injured and taken to hospital.

Both of his victims were brought to a hospital as well.
Police couldnt give any clues about the man's motives or his identity.
A Syrian passport was found however, belonging to a violent criminal.
Police dont rule out any possibility this was a terrorattack, allthough the man claimed to be a daesh syphatizer.

A new form of terrorattacks,

This time in Frankfurt Germany, a man from Eritrea pushed two people from a platform in front of a train.
A mother (40) and her son (8) the mother could jump back but was unable to help her son.
He died before her eyes.
A thrid person which he tried to push could also barely save himself.
By standers took the man in hold and hand him over to officers arriving at the scene. Whereas a 9mm would have been better IMHO.
Among the people on the platform were many children, many of them need psychological help.
The traindriver was also in shock and taken to a hospital.
Its the second time this week, when a man was pushed for a train and died to.

 A Syrian "refugee" is sentenced to life in prison in Germany for murder.
The 21 year old man attacked an elderly gay couple, killing one of them and injuring the other.
At first the investigation team thought that the attack was a robbery.
But when the man was seen as a suspect and got detained police soon found out het was a Daesh syphatizer.

 According to the German justice department the man was a homofobian radical islamic terrrorist.
 He "fled" to Germany in 2015.

And again.... another attack.
And yes its again a man from the religion of peace.

Wurzburg, Germany.

A man enters a store and asks where the knives are located.
He picks a large one and attacks the people in the store.
Among them a little boy(!)
His father and two other people died, several people are injured.
Others in the area where arming themselves with chairs and everything they can hit with, at that moment police arrived.
The perp was shot in the leg and arrest, a 24 years old Somalian.
And again this guy was supposed to be under psychiatric control.

It looks like now Corona bans are gone the terrorists are back, how long before something is done against them?
