An elite IDF intelligence unit was successful in exposing and thwarting an Islamic State (ISIS) terror plot to bomb an airliner flying out of Australia at the end of 2017.
According to an army announcement on Wednesday, the IDF’s famed 8200 cyber unit uncovered the plot and then relayed the information to Israel’s intelligence community, which shared it with local Australian enforcement agencies.
Acting on the information, Australia’s security agencies made arrests. The plot was reportedly in the advanced stages of planning and on the verge of execution.
