The former ISIS fighter, Abu Henricki, told ICSVE that in 2016 he was contacted in Syria by “Emni”, an intelligence unit of the Islamic State, to join other Trinitarian members to enter the US territory.
“They were going to move me to the Mexican side [of the southern border of the United States] from Puerto Rico, the intellectual author of the plan was a man in the US […], someone from the state of New Jersey,” the report by an independent body said. based in Brooklyn.
Henricki said the aim of the attack was “to attack the financial system” although he did not know more details of the conspiracy planned by ISIS.
“Basically, they wanted to make financial attacks, financial attacks to paralyze the economy (of the United States),” he said.
The ex-combatant assured that the infiltrators would be Western, many of them Trinitarians, but they have already died.
“I think they died, I think they also refused, they were still around (inside the Caliphate), at the end of 2017, and then they were killed, beaten by air strikes,” he explained when confirming that he saw the bodies and attended many of the burials of the fighters.
“They wanted to use these people (to attack inside the US) because they were from these areas (that is, they speak American and English),” he added.
Trump warned about the presence of ISIS members in the migrant caravans
In October 2018, during the passage through Mexico of the first migrant caravans, the president of the United States, Donald Trump, warned about the presence of ISIS members among the crowd and even suggested that the Democrats financed the caravan.
On that occasion, specialists and various media discarded Trump’s assertions and insisted that it was an effort by the Republican president to influence the November 2018 elections.
The reports came from an October 11, 2018 article in Guatemala’s Prensa Libre newspaper that quoted Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales as saying that the country’s police had captured approximately 100 people related to terrorism, including ISIS. The story did not specify the period of time in which those people were discovered or detained.
