Baku, June 1, AZERTAC
German police carried out nationwide raids on Wednesday morning targeting a network providing support to Daesh/ISIS terror group, according to Anadolu Agency.
At least seven suspects were arrested in coordinated raids across the country, the Federal Prosecutor's Office said in a statement.
The suspects belong to an international network that supported the terrorist activities of the Daesh/ISIS group in Syria with financial donations, according to the Prosecutor's Office.
“By collecting donations and forwarding them to Daesh/ISIS, they played a central role within the financing network,” the prosecutors said.
In the large-scale raids, around 1,000 security officers did searches at houses and offices in several federal states, including North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and Baden-Wurttemberg, and seized various documents and electronic devices.
