Israel foiled planned plane terror plot in Sydney

Israel foiled planned plane terror plot in Sydney

Professor Barton said the 8200 military intelligence unit is an extremely sophisticated agency which intercepts so-called signals intelligence, such as telephone and internet communications.

Partnering with the Israeli intelligence community allowed the transfer of the secret information to the local and national defense authorities in Australia who succeeded in preventing the attack. "The prevention of the attack saved dozens of innocent lives and emphasized the important role that the 8200 unit plays in the fight against ISIS". According to the forces, they were able to thwart the cyberattack due to their close monitoring of Iranian operations and the early detection of attempts to attack Israel.

According to the IDF Spokesperson's Unit: "Unit 8200 provided exclusive intelligence information to Australia that prevented the ISIS attack that would have resulted in the destruction of the plane".

Two of the four men originally arrested - Khaled Khayat and his brother Mahmoud Khayat - have each been charged with two counts of planning or preparing a terrorist act.

"The Israeli intelligence services thwarted the downing of an Australian plane, an unimaginable slaughter", the Israeli leader told an American-Jewish conference in Jerusalem. "Kol Hakavod to the Israeli intelligence system that not only protects Israeli citizens, but protects citizens of other countries around the world".

Four men were arrested in late July over the conspiracy, which the Australian Federal Police allege involved smuggling a bomb hidden inside a meat grinder onto an Etihad flight from Sydney to Abu Dhabi. Instead, Phelan said, the would-be terrorist left the airport with the IED, and his brother continued onto the flight without it. "If it hadn't been for the great work of our intelligence agencies and law enforcement over a very quick period of time, then we could well have a catastrophic event in this country".

"In the days between getting the intelligence data and making the arrests, they [Australian authorities] had to identify the targets. they had to put them under surveillance and then move as quickly as they could", Professor Barton said.

Australian police had no idea the plans were in motion until they received the tip from Israel on July 26.
