Far-Right Wing Supporters Arrested for Preparing Terrorist Attack
Greek police officers uncovered an armory full of explosives in Messinia, Greece, belonging to five men who were planning a terrorist attack. The men were arrested after detonating two low-power bombs which helped the police locate them.
One of the bombs that was found on Friday was made using newspapers from Drama. This fact combined with a suspicious car with number plates from Drama helped the policemen locate four of the men, which then led them to the 52-year-old Greek man who was the brain of the operation, originating from Kalamata.
Greek police found four bombs, ready to be used as deadly weapons. The explosive devices consisted of a 10 cm tube filled with explosives and shotgun bullets. The terrorist group, using the name “Omada Epsilon” had targeted the Kalamata town hall, court, Prefecture and tax office buildings.
According to the police, the small-scale “rehearsal” that the team organized on Friday in Kalamata and Mystras showed that they were preparing for a large-scale quadruple attack in the town of Kalamata in order to confuse the police.
