Germany Thwarts Alleged ISIS Attack on Swedish Parliament

German authorities successfully thwarted a potential terrorist attack planned by suspected ISIS members on the Swedish Parliament, according to a statement released on Tuesday by the federal prosecutor’s office. Two Afghan nationals, identified as Ibrahim MG and Ramin N, were arrested in the eastern German city of Gera on suspicion of plotting the attack.

The arrests come amidst heightened tensions following a series of Koran burnings in Sweden last year. Prosecutors allege that MG and N, who reportedly pledged allegiance to ISIS Khorasan Province (ISKP), planned to use firearms to kill police officers and civilians near the Swedish Parliament building.

According to the statement, the suspects conducted online research on the target location and attempted, unsuccessfully, to obtain weapons. Investigations also revealed that MG and N had previously raised funds for ISIS members imprisoned in northern Syria.

The swift action by German authorities underlines ongoing efforts to combat terrorism and prevent attacks across Europe. This incident serves as a stark reminder of the evolving threat posed by extremist groups and the importance of international cooperation in safeguarding public safety.
