Ramadan in Belgium: Eight Muslims arrested as police foil jihad massacre plot



There is no mention of the identities of these terrorists in the article below, but Molenbeek is a heavily Muslim area, and besides, it’s Ramadan, the month of jihad.

“Threat of terrorist attack in Belgium: eight people arrested,” translated from “Menace d’attentat terroriste en Belgique: huit personnes interpellées,” Le Soir, March 28, 2023 (thanks to L.):

This Monday evening, the federal police carried out several searches in Flanders and Brussels as part of a terrorism case.

On Monday evening, the Antwerp Federal Police carried out five searches in Merksem, Borgerhout, Deurne, Molenbeek-Saint-Jean and Eupen. According to a press release from the federal prosecutor’s office, five people were deprived of their liberty and taken for questioning. Two of them are suspected of preparing a terrorist attack on Belgian territory.

Three other people, also suspected of preparing a terrorist attack, were deprived of their freedom during searches this time, in Zaventem, Molenbeek-Saint-Jean and Schaerbeek.

“There are links between the two cases, but further investigation will reveal the extent to which the two cases were intertwined,” the statement said. In addition, the target is not known and “nothing can be communicated as to the results of these searches” for the moment, insists the prosecution.
