He indicates in his letters that he has willing fighters, the operations "want to run further away from the Islamic state". One of the letters contains the satellite photo to the Basel Rhine Harbor with the Oil Tanks. The stop should be triggered according to al-Tajiki an "economic disaster". He was originally scheduled to last January – but was never implemented in fact.
Why? The Federal intelligence service (NDB) is expressed only in a very cautious approach to the Syria provided plans. "We have no additional information about the possible attacks and the other contents of these documents are available currently," says spokeswoman Isabelle Graber.

A month ago, the last big village fell with Baghus, where the terrorist militia, had prevailed. "Thus, the territorial Caliphate in Syria and in Iraq's history."
It is the danger of the Sleepers, as they are in the plans described. Also in the case of returnees.
