Oussama Atar mastermind behind Paris and Brussels attacks killed in SyriaWednesday, 07 November 2018 15:13
Mediapart is claiming, “On November 17th, 2017, a strike by the international coalition in Syria killed the Belgian, Oussama Atar.” Its statement follows the opening of an investigation, which has revealed that the seven people, believed to be the masterminds of the Paris and Brussels attacks, have all been killed in Syria.
Oussama Atar had been arrested and imprisoned in 2005 in the Abu Ghraib and Bucca prisons in Iraq. He had been released in 2012 and repatriated to Brussels.
In a message sent to his family, Atar denied all involvement in the Paris and Brussels attacks. However, it appears that he visited one of his nephews in prison around twenty times. The nephew was one of the El Bakraoui brothers, himself one of the suicide bombers of the Brussels attacks on March 22nd, 2016.
