German police officers decked out in heavy tactical gear executed a raid on an apartment building in Duisburg to arrest a man they allege was planning an Islamic terrorist attack on a Jewish event, according to multiple German publications and local police.

German newspaper Bild reported that authorities arrested 29-year-old Tarik S. (full last name not given) after a foreign intelligence service tipped off German officials about the plot, according to a translation of the report. The suspect was reportedly already known as being high-risk after fighting for ISIS in the past and writing in the past that he wanted to die as a martyr.

Intelligence sources told the newspaper that the suspect was planning to ram a truck into a pro-Israel rally in North Rhine-Westphalia to kill as many people as possible.

Spiegel reported that the suspect had “easy access” to a truck, had searched online for pro-Israel events and “jihadist” content. The suspect has reportedly been under the watch of Germany’s security services for a long time due to his previous terrorism and warnings from foreign intelligence services.

An intelligence report suggested that the Islamic terrorist attack in Israel two weeks ago fueled the suspect’s desire to execute his terroristic plot.

The suspect allegedly praised the ISIS terrorist who went on a shooting spree in Brussels last week and was “inspired by his actions.”

The translated report said that the suspect “comes from the jihadist scene in Herford,” Germany, and traveled to Syria in 2013 where he reportedly “joined ISIS.”

The report said his terrorist name was “Osama Al Almani,” Osama, the German. He allegedly posed next to a beheaded victim, and when he was to Germany in 2016, he was arrested and sentenced to five years in prison for being part of a terrorist group.
