Just one day after presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump warned that ISIS is ready to launch “9/11 style attacks” on the US, a top official with the Department for Homeland Security confirmed that Mexican drug cartels are helping the Islamic State (ISIS) sneak across the border to America in order to study targets for terrorist attacks.
According to The Political Insider, ISIS operative Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir has been training Islamic militants near the border for over a year at a location close to Ciudad Juarez.
“Khabir trained hundreds of Al Qaeda fighters in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen and has lived in Mexico for more than a year,” the source told Judicial Watch.
Khabir has reportedly trained thousands of jihadists, most of whom are from Syria or Yemen, at the base.
“Staking out U.S. targets is not difficult, and Khabir actually brags in an Italian newspaper article published last week that the border region is so open that he ‘could get in with a handful of men, and kill thousands of people in Texas or in Arizona in the space of a few hours,’” Judicial Watch noted.
Khabir is a 52 year-old terrorist who was ordered to leave his native Kuwait ten years ago due to his extremist positions. He is currently on ISIS’s payroll, and the cell he runs in Mexico is known as Anapra.
