Germany Charges Seven Suspected ISIS-K Members

On April 24, German law enforcement arrested seven foreign nationals for allegedly plotting terrorist attacks on behalf of the Islamic State Province of Khorasan (ISIS-K), the Afghan offshoot of the Islamic State, according to Reuters. 

Of the suspects, one is from Turkmenistan, one is from Kyrgyzstan, and the other five are from Tajikistan. 

These individuals were planning on carrying out numerous attacks in Germany but had no finalized plans at the time of their arrest. 

However, they were actively seeking to “gather money and weapons” according to Deutsche Welle. 

According to German investigators, the suspects came to Germany from Ukraine in 2022. Prosecutors also said that the suspects met regularly and had scouted potential locations. 

ISIS-K is the terrorist organization that claimed responsibility for the recent terror attack on the Crocus City Hall in Moscow, where over 140 people were killed.
