BRUSSELS, September 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Belgium’s intelligence services prevented several terror attacks, which were planned by Muslim Belgians, who had returned from Syria where they supported the militants, local media reported on Saturday.
The media say radicals, who shared views of the Islamic State terrorist organisation, also planned bloody actions. All suspects were detained.
The authorities preferred not to publish the information earlier to avoid possible panic in the society. The media write up to 90 nationals of the Kingdom have returned from Syria, and every ninth was involved in preparing terror attacks similar to the firing at people near the Jewish Museum in Brussels.
As many as about 300 Belgian nationals are among radical Muslim militants fighting in Syria.
