German IS trailer with children lands in Frankfurt


A suspected supporter of the terrorist militia "Islamic State" (IS) * arrived in Frankfurt on Tuesday evening with a flight from Turkey. The 30-year-old arrived on board a Turkish Airlines machine with four children at Frankfurt Airport, said a spokesman for the Federal Police.

The woman was arrested immediately upon her arrival. According to the information, an arrest warrant from Niedersachsen was filed against her for membership of a terrorist organization. Employees of the youth welfare office took the children into custody.

The woman with German and Syrian nationality is said to have lived according to information from the German Press Agency before emigrating to Syria in Lower Saxony.

In view of the return of suspected IS supporters with children, the Hessian Minister of Justice Eva Kuhne-HOrmann (CDU) had said at the weekend that parents should also be held criminally responsible if they took their children from Germany to areas of the IS ISIS.

"Who educates his child in a religious extremist way, who deliberately exposes it to health hazards in conflict areas or who delivers his children to the educational methods of the IS, should be responsible for criminal charges," said the politician.

Already in November, a suspected IS-trailer with three children arrived at Frankfurt airport. According to information from the Attorney General's office in Frankfurt, the IS-returnee from Central Hesse is being investigated for membership in a foreign terrorist organization and for violation of the duty of care or education.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened to deport further alleged IS supporters to Europe. In November, Turkey expelled a seven-member German-Iraqi family with contact with the Salafist milieu to Germany, as well as two women who allegedly joined the IS. One of the suspected IS supporters had been remanded in custody after being deported to Germany.
