A 17-year-old boy has been charged with terrorism offences following a raid by state and federal police at a home in Greenvale, in Melbourne’s north, thwarting what police described as “an imminent threat to the community”.
Heavily-armed officers from Victoria Police and the Australian Federal Police swarmed the large two-storey home on Clare Boulevard in Greenvale on Friday afternoon.
The teen was charged on Friday afternoon with engaging in an act in preparation for, or planning, a terrorist act.
Police said the alleged attack was to target a location in Australia.
They said it will be alleged the teenager was undertaking preparations for an act of terrorism, as well as possessing things that relate to the commission of a terrorism act.
[…] AFP Deputy Commissioner Mike Phelan said the bomb squad then discovered improvised explosive devices at the home.
Meanwhile, in another Australian city…
A smaller raid took place in Sydney, and a 14-year-old boy has been arrested, News Corp has reported.
Several explosives found in the Melbourne home were detonated in a nearby park on Friday night.
A car parked in the driveway of the home, on Clare Boulevard, was also searched, and its contents were strewn across the road.
Police will hold a news conference on the raids at 10am on Saturday.
As an Australian I am not surprised, we have mohammedians running lose brandishing ISIS/Jihad flags and vowing to take over the Country.
Every time the Government or Patriotic citizens close in on these 5th columnists, leftist groups and politicians eagerly come to their defence with the help of the complicit media, providing them with funding, lawyers……. of course these leftists are the ones who brought this regressive culture into Australia in the first place.
Interesting times we live in….that begin to resemble the Age of peak islam.
I hope it doesn’t take around 800 years to stop them this time.
Can’t. Everything’s exponentially compressed these days.
Everything’s exponentially compressed these days.
Yes, and islam is about to get compressed.
Love positive thinking!
I’ve been spreading around this message:
We live in the Age of Peak islam.
We’ll see if it catches on………..
I like that expression.
