Brussels terrorist was ISIS torturer, planned major attack in ParisBrussels Jewish Museum terror attack in May tortured a French journalist who had been held in captivity by ISIS a month before, and planned a massive terrorist attack in Paris for Bastille Day on July 14. This is from the second link.
On Saturday, 6 September, European media reported that a French photojournalist who had been held by ISIS for 10 months in Syria identified [Mehdi] Nemmouche as one of his captors. According to Nicolas Hénin, who was abducted in June 2013 and released in April 2014, Nemmouche was known as a jihadi who enjoyed torturing hostages.And from the third link....
Hénin said that “when Nemmouche wasn’t singing, he was torturing”.Nemmouche would apparently have returned to Europe in the period between Hénin’s release, along with three other French journalists, late in the week of 14 April, and the date of the killing spree in Belgium, 24 May.
The journalist, who was released in April, said: “[Nemmouche] was a member of a small group of French nationals whose arrival used to terrify about 50 Syrian prisoners held in cells near ours. Every night, blows would start raining down in the room where I myself had been interrogated. The torture went on all night long, until the dawn prayer.”
According to the report, Nemmouche's attack was planned for July 14 at the country's Bastille Day parade, in the presence of high-ranking officials and heads of state, including President François Hollande and the head of the military.Nemmouche agreed to be extradited to Belgium. Provided that he wouldn't be extradited to Israel....
He allegedly bragged that the attack would be "Merah times five," referring to Mohammed Merah, who killed seven people in February 2012, among them three Jewish children and the father of two of them outside the Ohr Torah school in Toulouse.
French journalist and former hostage Nicolas Henin provided information about the plan during a testimony he gave of his time in captivity in Syria along with three other French nationals. Nemmouche was one of the captors.
Anyone want to bet how long Belgium will hold him? I'd bet less than a year.
