An internal document is circulating within the U.S. military community in Germany, warning of a possible terror attack carried out by a 23 year old German national of Turkish origin.
Hayrettin S., born 1987 in Berlin, is believed to have joined terror groups in Pakistan´s tribal areas. His exact location is unknown, yet the U.S. military is stepping up security measures at it´s installations in Ramstein, Vogelweh and Kapaun due to a high risk S. may carry out a terrorist attack against U.S. soldiers.
The heightened security has been ordered on October 1th, 6 p.m., advicing U.S. military personnel not to leave the base in uniform and large groups.
A BOLO („Be On the Look-Out“) -document was been released describing Hayrettin S. as „considered armed and extremely dangerous“. Access to all U.S. military installations is denied to the German Islamist.
