4 Teens In Germany Arrested For Planning Terror Attack On Christians and Jews

Four teenagers in Germany have been arrested for allegedly planning an Islamic terrorist attack against Christians and Jews.

Two 15-year-old girls and 16 and a 15-year-old boy had “glorified” ISIS and “declared themselves ready” to carry out an “Islamist-motivated terror attack” against churchgoers and police, Deutsche Welle, a German public state-owned international broadcaster, said.

The suspects were arrested in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Police arrested the suspects on pending charges of “declaring themselves ready to commit murder and manslaughter and preparing a serious act of violence,” the Associated Press reported.

The investigation began after officials suspected that the 16-year-old girl was planning to leave Germany to go to Syria to fight for ISIS.

Investigators found messages on her cell phone that indicated possible targets for their Islamic terror attack included churches and synagogues in Dortmund, Duesseldorf, Cologne, and Iserlohn.

The Associated Press reported that a 16-year-old boy in the southwestern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg was also arrested.
