HORRIFIC details have emerged of a plot to behead an Australian and upload it to social media in a deliberate attack against the country.
While the claims remain unconfirmed, Channel Seven reports one the men charged in this morning’s raids in Sydney planned to kidnap a random Australian, execute them by beheading in a public place, possibly Martin Place in Sydney’s CBD, and film the act and post on social media.
Further reports have emerged terrorists planned to drape the victim in an Islamic State flag.
The man, charged for serious terrorism related offences, is due in a Sydney court later today.
Beyond appalling. And how was this stopped:
The operation is understood to have been given the green light after months of surveillance of Australians believed to be linked to extremist terror group Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
People may want to reflect on this. We’re not talking about the Middle East. We’re not talking New York. We’re not talking London. We’re talking Sydney.
