Eleven men are accused of joining a terrorist cell, which targeted bombing ATM machines.
According to court files, the defendants are said to have joined the terrorist cell and were eyeing to murder police officers and destroy gas pipes as well as the ATMs after receiving funds from wanted fugitives in terror cases. The defendants’ plot was dismantled after police received confidential information revealing their plans. It was discovered that the first defendant recruited the third defendant and ordered him to examine banks located in Sanad area as the cell aimed to bomb the ATMs there. “He also requested me to observe the gas pipes, telling me that they were part of the plot to bomb them,” the third defendant told Prosecutors.
It’s said that the cell bombed a gas pipe but the explosive failed to cause any damage.
