ISIL defector says terrorist plan coordinated attacks in UK, France and Germany

Independent:
A former Isis militant turned whistleblower has warned that the terror group is planning a simultaneous attack on the UK, France and Germany.

Harry Sarfo, who was born in Germany but raised in the UK, said Isis commanders want to carry out multiple attacks in Europe.

He told the New York Times that when he arrived in Syria in 2015 he was told to return to his home in Bremen, Germany to plot a terror attack.


The 27-year-old described an encounter with masked members of Isis’s secret service, who told him and a German friend they needed to go home.

He said: “He was speaking openly about the situation, saying that they have loads of people living in European countries and waiting for commands to attack the European people.

“And that was before the Brussels attacks, before the Paris attacks.”

“They said, ‘Would you mind to go back to Germany, because that’s what we need at the moment’.

“And they always said they wanted to have something that is occurring in the same time: They want to have loads of attacks at the same time in England and Germany and France.”
...
Sarfo indicated the French recruits to ISIL seem the most dedicated.  The German and UK recruits have not been as determined.  The simultaneous attack scheme seems like an adaption of an al Qaeda tactic such as that used on 9-11.

Sarfo says he became radicalized while in jail for an armed robbery.
