But his statements are not simply words. A computer laptop seized in northern Syria by pro-Western rebels from a Tunisian jihadi revealed plans to develop and use biological weapons and authorities nonetheless have raised its terror threat level from “substantial” to “severe” to warn citizens that a terrorist attack is “highly likely.”
The computer laptop that was seized in a raid in January in the Syrian province of Idlib, near the Turkish border, reported seeing thousands of files of schemes, bomb-making instructions and research on building a homebrew biological weapon of mass destruction.
Foreign Policy described the contents as “a treasure trove of documents that provide ideological justifications for jihadi organisations — and practical training on how to carry out the Islamic State’s deadly campaigns.”
One such document was done in 19 pages in Arabic language where the topic was how to develop biological weapons and how to use as a weapon the bubonic plague from infected animals.
The document owner was identified as Muhammed S., a Tunisian national who was a former chemistry and biology student at a Tunisian University.
Muhammed made instructions how to test the disease safely, before launching it in a terrorist attack. “When the microbe is injected in small mice, the symptoms of the disease should start to appear within 24 hours,” the document said.
How best to use the biological weapon? By disposing them in closed areas. “Use small grenades with the virus, and throw them in closed areas like metros, soccer stadiums, or entertainment centers,” the file said.
“Best to do it next to the air-conditioning. It also can be used during suicide operations.”
A 26-page fatwa, or Islamic ruling, on the usage of weapons of mass destruction was likewise found among the files. “If Muslims cannot defeat the kafir [unbelievers] in a different way, it is permissible to use weapons of mass destruction,” states the fatwa by Saudi jihadi cleric Nasir al-Fahd, who is currently imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. “Even if it kills all of them and wipes them and their descendants off the face of the Earth.”
But perhaps this answers some of concerns when last month Shoebat.com posted a major SOS concernregarding Jihadist training on how to create havoc including weapons of mass destruction which was continually posted by terrorists in which Youtube refused to remove
