Six People Arrested By Authorities, Suspected To Be Members Of An ISIS Training Team

By Collin Gossel

On Tuesday, November 21, German police conducted a series of early morning raids across four different German states. They arrested six men whom authorities believe were involved with ISIS and were actively planning an attack on German soil.

The men, aged 20–28, were all ISIS fighters in Syria before entering Germany with false identities and seeking asylum as refugees. Authorities, who have recently claimed their investigations involving "radical Islamists" have risen by 300% since 2016, raided eight apartments while taking the men into custody.
