I could not stop them, all I did was telling the world in the Internet,” said “Sound and Picture” reporter, he also said when watching the news, “This is what I was afraid of. They did it, Innocent people will pay the price of IS’ criminality”.
The story begins on February 11 \ 2015 when the reporter was in one of the towns in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor. While he was in an Internet café there, walked into the cafe two of IS fighters, one of them was “the Belgian Abu Ibrahim” accompanied by a tall man.
They sat next to the reporter and started to chat. Abu Ibrahim turned to our reporter and spoke to him in English. The reporter did a smart move by pretending not to understand a word in order to listen to their chat, Abu Ibrahim then replied “Nothing there is no problem,” in a foreign Arabic accent and then turned to the person next to him and told him in English “don’t worry, he doesn’t understand English”.
“Sound and Picture” reporter said: “When I heard that, I knew that there is something serious going on, so I listened in carefully. The tall man speaks English, but in a strange accent. Abu Ibrahim said that he has been in Iraq and the Prince told him that a large operation is being prepared in France. Two of them are going to France this month and after a few weeks they will be followed by two others in May and there they will meet with a group of four Frenchmen to start preparing for the attack of France, which will be followed by similar attacks in the capitals of Europe”.
the reporter was shocked, he wanted to ask them “Why are you doing this? why you want to kill innocent people? Isn’t it what you did in Syria enough?” but the Belgian Abu Ibrahim resume his chat and said: “The Group in France awaiting our arrival and there will be arms and IEDs preparing. I am so glad, IS are going to Jihad in Europe”
The reporter said: “The tall man was sharing Abu Ibrahim the joy and started to ask him about the equipment and the training they received for such operations, the Belgian replied that “It’s a tough and high standard trainings in a desert camp in Albu Kamal east of Deir Ezzor, and there is an Algerian guy will secure the way to them. The road to France will be a long and difficult one, but we will arrive there at the end”. after that they started to talk about general topics concerning IS and civilians and how they admire princes’ Ideas about moving the fight to the infidel countries to put pressure on nations fighting IS”.
“It was a difficult night, I did not know what to do, a lot of innocent people are in danger and I cannot protect them, I did not know what to do so I decided to write what I know on social media to warn people of this crime. I searched for Abu Ibrahim, but I was not able to find him, so I decided to publish it on February 21. In order to preserve my life, I made sure that Abu Ibrahim and that person who was with him were no longer in the town. I also moved to another house” The reporter said. “I feel so sorry for what happened, I couldn’t protect them, I was hoping that my words could have reached France to take precautions to protect the innocent. “
