BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 A.M.) – Three Syrian refugees are standing trial in Dusseldorf, Germany for plotting to commit suicide attacks and shootings inside the city.

The three men were identified by The Local as Saleh A. (age 25), Mahmoud B. (age 25), and Hamza C. (age 27); they are all Syrian nationals.

The accused “are believed to have plotted to have two suicide bombers set off explosive vests and then open fire on passers-by with automatic rifles,” the Düsseldorf court said in a statement.

German authorities believe Saleh A. and Hamza C. joined the Islamic State (ISIL) in Syrian in as early as 2014.

“They crossed from Syria to Turkey in May 2014. From there they travelled separately in March and July in 2015 via Greece to Germany,” The Local claimed.

The accused will stand trial for the next few months, as the German authorities attempt to prove their involvement in a potential terrorist attack.
