On Thursday German state police arrested Yusuf Erkocoglu, a Turkish teenager caught planning to blow up a gay club in Frankfurt. German media outlets reported that the 17-year-old suspect has both Turkish and German citizenship.
The US government played a role in preventing Erkocoglu ‘s suspected attack, according to the intelligence source in Germany. United States Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, told the Jerusalem Post : “The US will always work with our German Government partners to thwart acts of terror.
The rise of Islamic terror networks in Germany has created new dangers for Germany, the United States and Jewish and Israeli institutions in the Federal Republic.
