Israeli intelligence once again is proven to be the number one weapon for Western Europe, the United States and Russia to fight Islamic terror.
Israeli intelligence was responsible for preventing a massive terror attack at a soccer stadium in Hanover last week, according to Stern Magazine, which also reported that a bomb-laden ambulance was discovered.
European media previously reported that French intelligence warned German authorities that terrorists were planning to attack Germany’s Hanover stadium, where a friendly game was scheduled between Germany and Holland.
German chancellor, Angela Merkel was due to attend the game, indicating that it was not coincidental that Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists targeted a stadium in Paris two weeks ago because president Francois Hollande was at the game. An attack inside the stadium was foiled by guards who stopped a suspect, who then blew himself up.
Stern reported Wednesday:
Israeli intelligence handed over exact information on what was expected in the planned attack in Hanover, leading to the last-minute cancellation of the friendly game between Holland and Germany.
A warning had been passed on a day before the game. The next day, hours before the soccer match, another intelligence report warned that a terror attack was “imminent.”
The night of the game four days after the ISIS massacres Paris, German authorities received information from Israeli sources that detailed a planned attack inside the stadium. A search outside turned up an ambulance loaded with a bomb. Police arrested a known suspect.
Two hours later, a Hanover train station was evacuated after as suspicious object was found.Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu
