DAMASCUS, SYRIA (7:35 P.M.) – The Syrian man accused of planning a terror attack in Berlin, Jaber Al-Bakr, reportedly joined the western-funded “White Helmets” group in the Idlib Governorate prior to his return to Germany two months ago, Reuters News Agency claimed on Sunday.
Al-Bakr’s brother spoke to Reuters on Sunday, claiming that Jaber may have been radicalized by local imams in Germany before planning to carry out a terrorist attack against the country that hosted him and thousands of Syrian refugees.
The terror suspect later committed suicide in his jail cell before answering any questions regarding his motives.
