US military intelligence service warned Sweden that an Iranian terror cell was planning an attack as revenge for the assassinations of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. The two Islamic terrorists living in Sweden planned to carry out an attack against the United Arab Emirates’ embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capital.
The Islamic terrorists considered attacking the American and Israeli embassies but settled on the United Arab Emirates due to its country’s proximity to Israel. A total of 16 people are said to have been arrested in Ethiopia, and three suspects were also arrested in Sweden.
One of the men identified by the United States lives in Scania, Sweden and previously worked as a bodyguard and personal assistant. The other man, Ahmed Ismail, is a 44-year-old with Eritrean citizenship who has been living in Gothenburg. The entrepreneur is mentioned as the leader of the sleeper cell and “brain” behind the terrorist plans.
A senior U.S. intelligence chief, Rear Admiral Heidi K. Berg, recently told the New York Times, that Iran is behind the assassination plans. Iranian diplomats have denied the allegations and denied any involvement.
According to the Times sources, the reason for Iran’s involvement is that the country’s leadership wants revenge for the murders of Soleimani and Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.
On January 3, 2020, Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, was killed in Baghdad during a targeted attack by an American drone strike. He has been described as one of Iran’s leading military leaders who directed operations abroad, including terror attacks. For more than a decade, Soleimani killed or badly wounded thousands of American service members.
The second assassination motivating Iran’s attempted embassy attack, is the killing of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Iran’s leading nuclear expert. Mr Fakhrizadeh was a brigadier general in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, and a proscribed international terrorist. The mastermind behind the Iranian nuclear program was killed last November with a remote-controlled weapon.
Watch the following report by Swedish news agency, Expressen
Iran is testing Joe Biden’s weakness. The mullahs in Tehran and their proxies across the Middle East have increased their terrorist attacks in the region since Joe Biden was announced as the new U.S. President.
Iran knows that the newly-installed Democrat leader and his advisors do not have Trump’s strength in dealing with it. Biden, would not dare to target a dangerous leading terrorist like Qassem Soleimani.
Many working for Biden are the very same Iranian puppets who worked in the Obama administration. Biden and his recycled administration are focused on trying to revive the dangerous and controversial 2015 Iran nuclear deal. Furthermore, Biden has offered the terrorist regime even further concessions.
Just last month, Iran announced that it was resuming enriching uranium to 20 percent. This clear violation of the accords proves that the Islamic Republic is seeking nuclear weapons.
Not only will the Iranian nuclear deal set back the delicate stability that exists in the Middle East today but eventually lead to war.

The murder of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani became world news. Now two men living in Sweden have been pointed out by an American intelligence officer for having planned a terrorist attack as retaliation. One is a man who lives in Skåne. He has previously worked as a bodyguard and personal assistant. The other is a 44-year-old entrepreneur residing in Gothenburg — who is named as the “brain” behind the terror plans. The planned terror attack would have been carried out in Ethiopia’s capital city, Addis Ababa, against the embassy of the United Arab Emirates, according to information from the Ethiopian State Security Service. Altogether,15 persons are reported to have been arrested in Ethiopia and three suspects also in Sweden. The 44-year-old entrepreneur was arrested in December of last year when he landed at Arlanda airport. He is suspected on probable cause of conspiring in a terrorist attack during the period from 22 November 2019 to 1 December 2020. But he denies the crime. The other person is a 44-year-old man who was arrested in Trelleborg and has now been charged on probable cause with conspiring to commit a terrorist crime during November 2020 in Sweden and abroad. In Sweden, the resident of Trelleborg has worked as a personal assistant. He also denies planning a terror attack. Evidence against the suspects is based in large part on information provided to Swedish security police by other nations’ intelligence services.
