The murder is considered an attack only if the perpetrator proves that he is a supporter of ISIS more than two weeks after being arrested. The National Prosecutor’s Office took over the case and began investigating the motives behind the attack.
Just released from prison

He “transformed” into an intelligence system and became the crosshair of the intelligence service. He was arrested when he searched the Internet for explosives and manuals for making bomb vests.
In prison, H. Said that he believed that unbelievers should be beheaded and should introduce Islamic law. There is no sign that he has bid farewell to his radical views. He was released, but with strict probation conditions: he must report three times a week, and he is not allowed to come into contact with militants or carry weapons.
