Another Syrian Muslim suspect is wreaking havoc and apparently these terrorists call themselves “lone wolves.”

On Tuesday, a Germany spy chief said that a 22-year-old Syrian refugee arrested in Germany on Monday had ties to the Islamic State.

Hans-Georg Maassen, head of the domestic intelligence agency, told German broadcaster ZDF the arrest of suspect Jaber Albakr had probably prevented an imminent attack.

“We succeeded in preventing a terrorist attack just minutes before midnight.”

Police had been hunting for the suspect since he evaded them during a raid on Saturday.

Citing their investigation, the Die Welt newspaper reported on Tuesday that Albakr had spent several months in the ambiguous terrorist country, Turkey, this year.

Albakr apparently left in the spring and returned to Germany in late August.

Investigators tried to determine the motive for staying that long in the potential terrorist state.

“It said investigators were still trying to determine what Albakr did during his time in Turkey, which an Interior Ministry report in August described as a hub for Islamist groups.

 Intelligence sources said it was unclear if Albakr had become radicalized in Syria or in Germany and that they had no evidence he was receiving orders from Islamic State militants abroad, as in the case of a Syrian man who blew himself up during a botched attack in the city of Ansbach in July.”

But police said on Monday that Albakr, who was granted temporary asylum in Germany, was ready to carry out the brutal terrorist attacks similar to those which occurred in Brussels and Paris.

German investigators said in September they were concerned about “lone wolf” attackers who were getting instant messages from Islamic State militants overseas.

Albakr was caught by two Syrian migrants who captured and bound him after learning of the police manhunt on social media.

They were both hailed as “heroes” by Peter Tauber—Secretary General of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU).

Tauber told the Rheinische Post newspaper:

“We have to thank them for overpowering a countryman suspected of terrorism and turning him over to police.”

Germany’s Bild newspaper quoted Mohamed A., a 35-year-old Syrian migrant, as saying that he and another man had picked up Albakr at the train station in Leipzig on Sunday after he contacted an online network for Syrian refugees.

They had dinner together and then drove to another friend’s apartment where Albakr spent the night.

But after they saw police were looking for a man who matched Albakr’s description, they bound him with electrical extension cords and contacted police.

“He offered us 1,000 euros and $200 to let him go. He had the money in a backpack, along with a knife.  I am so grateful that Germany took us in. We couldn’t allow him to harm any Germans.”

Die Welt claimed that other asylum seekers were suspicious when Albakr contacted them for help in finding an apartment in the eastern state of Saxony because he apparently had large sums of currency and wanted to live alone.

Do you think this occurrence will spread to the United States?
