FBI Thwarts Planned Terror Attack on Florida Synagogue

FBI Thwarts Planned Terror Attack on Florida Synagogue

The FBI has arrested a man suspected of plotting to bomb a synagogue in Miami, Florida, the Times of Israel reports, citing south Florida news station 7News.

The suspect, who is expected to be in federal court on Monday, intended to target the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center on Friday evening, when it would have been attended by worshipers for the Friday night service and the last night of Passover, 7News says.

The man allegedly planned to throw an explosive device over the wall of the synagogue, but was arrested before he could carry out the bombing. The FBI declined to comment on the investigation, according to 7News.

The man, who was caught in an FBI sting operation, may have converted to Islam, according to sources cited by 7News.

Speaking to WSVN, local resident Stephanie Levine said, “I think about, before we had a baby, that we used to go there for services, and God forbid, it could have been us. Thank God they stopped him, but had they not, it would have been such a horrible thing to happen to this neighborhood.”

“Of course it surprised me,” local resident Richard Levinson told WSVN. “Everybody says, ‘I live in a small town. It doesn’t happen here,’ but the sad part is, it happens everywhere.”

An Islamic State cell in Tunisia allegedly plotted to carry out a terror attack against a synagogue in the northern coastal town of La Marsa, according to a report in Al-Shuruq, cited in Ynet.

A secret informant who was in contact with the cell said that one of the members of the group planned to murder the individual in charge of the synagogue, before stealing gold from the premises and then killing other local senior security and political officials, the report says.

The informant added that some members of the cell had previously traveled to Syria and afterwards returned to recruit youngsters for terror activities, according to Ynet.

The fate of the cell is unclear.

Around 900-950 Jews live in Tunisia, divided between the capital Tunis and the island of Djerba.
