Beheading plot foiled:

A SERIES of anti-terrorism raids were sparked by intelligence reports that Islamic State was planning a public execution in Australia, Prime Minister Tony Abbott says
.


Details of the planned attack have emerged in the wake of the biggest anti-terrorism operation in Australias history, involving hundreds of police officers in co-ordinated raids across Sydney and Brisbane this morning.


Mr Abbott was briefed on the police raid on Wednesday night, which included intelligence that public beheadings were planned. The exhortations, quite direct exhortations, were coming from an Australian who is apparently quite senior in ISIL to networks of support back in Australia to conduct demonstration killings here in this country, he told reporters.


So this is not just suspicion, this is intent and thats why the police and security agencies decided to act in the way they have.


Police believe a group of Sydney men were planning to seize a random member of the public and behead their victim, while filming the attack, sources say.


Fifteen people have been arrested in Sydney so far, although the operation is ongoing, with at least one man due in court today to face terrorism-related charges.


Australian Federal Police said the suspected terrorists were planning violent acts here in Australia although they refused to confirm these included potential beheadings. They said full details of the allegations would be revealed later in the day in court.


AFP Acting Commissioner Andrew Colvin said: Police believe that this group that we have executed this operation today had the intention and had started to carry out planning to commit violent acts here in Australia. Those violent acts particularly related to random acts against members of the public.

Police will allege suspects were planning an act of violence against a random individual. Decline to confirm if plan was a beheading.

NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said the allegations would relate to serious violence against a random member of the public here on the streets of NSW.

What we can indicate is the violence was to be perpetrated on a member of the public on the streets and certainly at this stage was at a very high level.


Fifteen people have been detained, including one charged with serious terrorism offences. He will appear in court later today, where more facts will become more clear, Mr Scipione said.


Those facts would include any suspected links between the charged man and the Islamic State terrorist group, he said.


Police Some of those taken into custody had already had their passports cancelled.


Mr Scipione said reasonable force was used to detain one man. Todays operation reflects the reality of the threat that we actually face, he said.


Mr Scipione said random attacks were planned.


All of those plans that may have been on foot are thwarted, he said.


In Brisbanes south three houses were raided this morning as part of a probe that last week saw two men charged with terrorism-related offences.


Counterterrorism teams and sniffer dogs were involved in the raids in Mt Gravatt East, Logan and Underwood, with cars and homes searched.


No arrests have been made in Brisbane, but police said the operation was a continuation of the one in which Omar Succarieh the 31-year-old owner of an Islamic centre and 21-year-old Agim Kruezi were arrested last week.


Queensland Police Commissioner Ian Stewart said the Brisbane raids were carried out in conjunction with those that occurred in northwest Sydney that has seen 15 arrested and one man charged.


Outside a two-storey brick home in Mt Gravatt East raided this morning, neighbours said a large family had been living there for more than 20 years.


In contrast to the raids in northwest Sydney, neighbours of that home and around a newly-built townhouse in Underwood where investigators remain said they heard little noise when police arrived early this morning.


AFP and Queensland Police also searched a fibro house in Logan.


Mr Colvin said about 800 officers had executed 25 search warrants across Sydney comprising investigators, forensic experts, tactical specialists and surveillance officers in the largest operation of its kind in Australian history.

A further 70 officers were involved in raids in Queensland following up the raids at Logan, in Brisbanes south, last week. Police were investigating linkages between the NSW and Queensland suspected terror cells.


Mr Scipione urged calm, saying police would launch a separate Operation Hammerhead with 220 highly visible officers to clamp down on people who may want to take retribution or in fact create trauma within communities.

The raids come less than a week after ASIO raised the threat level of a terror attack from medium to high, meaning an attack is considered likely.


They also come a week after The Australian reported that ASIO now believes there are a handful of Islamic extremists who have what has been termed a settled intention to conduct an attack here in Australia.


Authorities have been conducting surveillance on people linked to the terrorist group Islamic State, which has been cutting a barbaric path through Iraq and Syria.


In Sydney, police said a number of people have been arrested and houses raided in Beecroft, Bella Vista, Guildford, Merrylands, Northmead, Wentworthville, Marsfield, Westmead, Castle Hill, Revesby, Regents Park and Bass Hill.


Immigration Minister Scott Morrison applauded the incredibly good work of 600 police and intelligence personnel in conducting the raids.


We are dealing with something that is very real here, Mr Morrison, a member of the National Security Committee of Cabinet, told ABC Radio. The government knows that, were responding accordingly and anyone who has information on any matters should call that 1800 123 400 number to report anything,


The scale of what were seeing in this ongoing operation this morning the 600 people, officers involved I think demonstrates the very real threat thats there and the incredibly good work that is being done by our agencies.


Mr Morrison said the raids supported the governments decision to spend $630 million boosting domestic security and support the US-led intervention against jihadists in Iraq.


Labor deputy leader Tanya Plibersek said the opposition had not been briefed on the raids ahead of time.


There are about 60 Australians believed to be fighting in Iraq and Syria with groups such as Islamic State, while another 100 are suspected of providing support from Australia.


The raids also come a day after a Sydney-based money transfer business owned by the sister and brother-in-law of convicted Sydney terrorist Khaled Sharrouf was shut down amid concerns it was being used to funnel funds to the Middle East to finance terrorism.


The Lakemba remittance provider, Bisotel Rieh Pty Ltd, owned by Damour Sharrouf and her husband Ahmed Alwash, was suspended after they could not account for millions of dollars transferred to Turkey and Lebanon.

11:39 A.M.
Syrian Kurdish fighters have appealed to other Kurdish parties in the region for military aid to repel an advance by Islamic State fighters in northern Syria near the Turkish border, a Kurdish military official said on Thursday.
Islamic State fighters seized 16 Kurdish villages west of the predominantly Kurdish city of Ayn al-Arab, also known as Kobani, in a rapid advance in areas near the Turkish border.
Ocalan Iso, deputy commander of Kurdish forces in Kobani, told Reuters the Kurds were seeking support from other groups including the Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) to fend off the advance by Islamic State. Speaking via Skype, he said they wanted support "in all military aspects." (Reuters)
11:04 A.M. Islamic State fighters capture 16 Kurdish villages in northern Syria, according to a Kurdish military official. (Reuters)
10:55 A.M. Nearly three million Syrian children are not attending school due to the war raging in their country, an international charity group said Thursday.
The report by the Britain-based Save the Children added that hundreds of thousands of displaced children are struggling to enroll for school in their host countries and in Syria.
The report spotlighted how Syria's conflict, now entering its fourth year, is denying a decent education to a generation of children, with consequences that may last for generations.
Within Syria, the report estimated that 3,465 schools, or one-fifth of the country's educational buildings, were either destroyed or damaged, or are being used for military purposes.
"It is absolutely shameful that the obligation to protect schools is not being respected in this conflict, endangering the lives of innocent children," said the organization's regional director, Roger Hearn. (AP)
10:36 A.M. The Netherlands will consider contributing F-16 fighter jets and arms for Kurdish fighters to help counter the rise of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, a Dutch newspaper reported on Thursday.
The Trouw daily, citing government sources, said an unspecified number of planes will take part in air strikes against insurgent targets in Iraq and possibly Syria.
The Netherlands was not among the nations approached by U.S. President Barack Obama at a NATO meeting in Wales earlier this month, when he was seeking to build a coalition of allies against the hardline Islamic offshoot of al Qaeda.
Washington had not taken the Dutch offer to provide 1,000 helmets and bullet proof vests to the Kurdish troops in northern Iraq seriously, Trouw reported. (Reuters)
10:32 A.M. At least one unmanned surveillance aircraft has been seen over Islamic State-controlled areas of the Syrian province of Aleppo, where the radical group has evacuated most of its bases, a group which tracks the war in Syria reported on Thursday.
Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said multiple sources in northeastern Aleppo had spotted at least one drone over towns including al-Bab and Manbij. "They hadn't seen them before," he told Reuters by telephone.
U.S. President Barack Obama last month authorized surveillance flights in Syria. Unmanned surveillance aircraft have already been spotted over the city of Raqqa, the Islamic State's stronghold in Syria 450 km (250 miles) northeast of Damascus, activists have reported. (Reuters)
8:01 A.M. A Pakistan-born neuroscientist has become a rallying cry for militant groups demanding her release from a U.S. prison. But in a little-noticed move she is trying to abandon her legal fight for freedom, saying the U.S. court system is unjust.
Islamic militants in Syria, Algeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan have made Aafia Siddiqui's release a condition for freeing certain foreign hostages. Islamic State, for example, proposed swapping American journalist James Foley for her, but he was executed after their demands, which also included an end to U.S. airstrikes in Iraq, were not met.
A 42-year-old mother of three with degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Brandeis University, Siddiqui is serving an 86-year sentence in a prison medical center in Texas. A jury in 2010 convicted her of attempting to shoot and kill a group of FBI agents, U.S. soldiers and interpreters who were about to interrogate her for alleged links to Al-Qaida.
Siddiqui, who during her trial interrupted proceedings repeatedly and at times was removed from the courtroom, wrote U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan on July 2 seeking to end her most recent appeal.
"I refuse to participate in this system of total injustice that has punished and tortured me repeatedly, and continues to do so, without my having committed a crime," she wrote. (Reuters)
7:32 A.M. Iran's foreign minister ruled out cooperating with the United States in helping Iraq fight Islamic State militants and warned that the terrorist group poses a much broader global threat that needs new thinking to eradicate.
Mohammad Javad Zarif said Wednesday that Iran has serious doubts about the willingness and ability of the United States to react seriously to the "menace" from the Islamic State group "across the board" and not just pick and choose where to confront it as it has just started doing in Iraq.
"This is a very mobile organization," he told the Council on Foreign Relations. "This is not a threat against a single community nor a threat against a single region. It was not confined to Syria, nor will it be confined to Iraq. It is a global threat."
The U.S.-Iranian relationship is at a delicate moment, with a new round of talks on a deal to rein in Iran's nuclear program set to begin on Thursday, which Zarif said is his top priority. Leaders of the two countries who talked a year ago are also arriving next week for the annual ministerial meeting of the U.N. General Assembly.
Iran was the first country to provide help to neighboring Iraq when the Islamic State group swept across the border from Syria in July. France wanted Iran to attend an international conference in Paris on Monday aimed at coordinating actions to crush the Islamic State extremists in Iraq, but the United States said "no." (AP)
10:00 P.M. A suicide car bombing on a security post outside Baghdad and explosion on a crowded commercial street in the Iraqi capital killed at least 11 people Wednesday, officials said.
The deadliest attack took place after sundown when a suicide bomber drove a car packed with explosives into an abandoned building used by security forces in the town of Tarmiyah, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Baghdad, police officials said.
Five soldiers and three policemen were killed, and at least 16 members of the security forces were wounded, the officials said.
The second bombing struck a commercial street in Baghdad's northern district of Khazimiyah, killing three people and wounded eight, police said.
Medical officials confirmed the causalities. All of the officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media. (AP)
8:57 P.M. Iranian President Hassan Rohani denounced Islamic State's beheading of innocent people, saying the militant group wants to "kill humanity," NBC News said in excerpts of an interview released on Wednesday.
"From the viewpoint of the Islamic tenets and culture, killing an innocent people equals the killing of the whole humanity," Rohani told the television network, according to NBC. "And therefore, the killing and beheading of innocent people in fact is a matter of shame for them and it's the matter of concern and sorrow for all the human and all the mankind." (Reuters)

Hundreds of Australian police struck in dawn raids in Sydney and Brisbane as intelligence services moved to forestall what they believe was an imminent terrorist attack.

Fifteen people were arrested on suspicion of preparing a public execution to further the cause of Islamic militants in Iraq and Syria. Police believe the plan was to snatch someone from the streets of Sydney, and then kill them on camera in front of an ISIL flag. The prime minister says the attack was designed to terrify people

Actually, it is the duty of Muslim countries more than the Western countries, to confront Evil mufsideen and kill every last one of them. For the sake of Allah.
not opposing them is an act of treason against Islam.

Maniac terrorist group ISIS calls for supporter to murder AUSTRALIANS:


'Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over... Kill them in any manner': Islamic State terror group spokesman purportedly calls for supporters to murder AUSTRALIANS in evil message


  • Senior Islamic State spokesman specifically names Australia as target in threatening audio message
  • Abu Mohammed al-Adnani calls on his supporters to murder U.S. allies in various vile ways
  • 'Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him'
  • Prime Minister Tony Abbott's office told Daily Mail Australia the nation's security agencies regard the audio message as a 'genuine' threat
  • Message comes amid the Abbott Government's attempts to introduce new anti-terrorism legislation
  • Mr Abbott said 'the delicate balance between freedom and security may have to shift' - toward security

The official spokesman of the Islamic State terror group has purportedly issued a chilling message calling on his followers to murder Australians in ghastly ways.

In what the Prime Minister's office said was being regarded as a 'genuine threat' by the nation's security agencies, senior IS leader Abu Mohammed al-Adnani on Monday released an audio message specifically calling for attacks on people of a number of nationalities, including Australians.

al-Adnani said: 'If you can kill a disbelieving American or European – especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be.'

Terror suspect Omarjan Azari, 22, pictured (above) being taken away from court. He was charged with conspiracy to commit terrorism last Thursday.

'Do not ask for anyone’s advice and do not seek anyone’s verdict.'

'Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling.'

In the statement, Al-Adnani purportedly implored his followers to commit a number of graphic crimes against 'disbelieving American (sic), Frenchman, or any of their allies'.

'Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him.'

And in a lengthy series of rhetorical questions addressed to the 'soldier of the Islamic State', he appeared to question Australia's involvement in the Middle Eastern conflict.

'Why have the nations of disbelief entrenched together against you?' he asked.

'What threat do you pose to the distant place of Australia for it to send its legions towards you? What does Canada have anything to do with you?'

The militant's message follows the disruption of an alleged Sydney beheading plot in the nation's largest ever terror raids last Thursday.

In a statement, a spokesman for the Prime Minister told Daily Mail Australia the government believed the terrorist's statement was real.

'Australian agencies regard the statement issued today by ISIL calling for attacks against members of the international coalition, including Australians, as genuine,' the spokesman said, using an alternative name for the IS terror group.

1411373478952_wps_6_Police_remove_a_sword_as_.jpg

Police remove a sword as part of evidence found at a residential property in the suburb of Marsfield, in Sydney last Thursday.

A U.S. State Department notice described al-Adnani, born under the name Taha Sobhi Falaha, as the 'official spokesman and a senior leader of ISIL'. He is the 'main conduit for the dissemination of official messages', the notice said.

Al-Adnani's chilling threat came as the Federal Government outlined its plans for new anti-terror legislation on Monday afternoon.

Mr Abbott told Parliament he could not promise that 'hideous events' will never take place in Australia.

'Regrettably, for some time to come, Australians will have to endure more security than we’re used to, and more inconvenience than we’d like,' he said.

'Regrettably, for some time to come, the delicate balance between freedom and security may have to shift.'
