Jihadi Jake’s plot to bomb Melbourne

Written By komlim puldel on Kamis, 12 Maret 2015 | 20.01

The Islamic State is claiming Australian teen Jake Bilardi has carried out a suicide attack in Iraq.

A CRAIGIEBURN teenager who is believed to have carried out a suicide attack had stored bomb-making chemicals in his family home.

And in a chilling blog post before his death, Jake Bilardi revealed he had been planning terror attacks across Melbourne.



Islamic State-linked social media accounts claimed the 18-year-old — known as "Jihadi Jake" — was part of a co-ordinated suicide attack in central Iraq that claimed 10 lives.

Victorian police on Thursday revealed that after Bilardi fled overseas in August they had found chemicals at his home.

In a statement Victoria Police said no actual explosive devices were uncovered at his home.

But the discovery of the chemicals put Bilardi on the radar of the Federal Police and ASIO, who tried to trace his movements in the Islamic State-controlled areas.

His Australian passport was also cancelled in October.

According to a blog, teen jihadi Jake Bilardi planned bombings across Melbourne before leaving for Syria.

A blog post written under Bilardi's fighting name, Abu Abdullah al-Australi, says he was planning to detonate bombs across Melbourne if he was thwarted in his attempts to reach Islamic State.

"This plan involved launching a string of bombings across Melbourne, targeting foreign consulates and political/military targets as well as grenade and knife attacks on shopping centres,'' he wrote weeks before his reported death.

"Culminating with myself detonating a belt of explosives amongst the kuffar."

While the news of his death has not been verified, a wave of suicide bombs hit Anbar province in the last 24 hours.

Ramadi was reportedly struck by 13 car bomb attacks — killing 10 and injuring 30.

Supporters of the Islamic State claim Bilardi attacked the gates of an Iraqi military brigade in Ramadi, tweeting a picture of the long-haired teen in a van just before the attack.

Bilardi's reported death has shocked his friends and family, with relatives too distraught to speak to the media.

Teachers at Craigieburn Secondary College told students they had tried to help the troubled teen through his personal problems until he left the school in 2013.

A spokesman from his mosque — the Hume Islamic Youth Centre — said he was saddened to hear his death.

"If he came to mosque more and learnt from reputable scholars he would never have turned to Sheik Google,'' Mustafa Abu Yusuf said.

Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop confirmed she had cancelled Bilardi's passport on "national security grounds" as she again urged young Australians not to "fall victim to this brutal terrorist organisation" which she said promises redemption and martyrdom.

But worryingly, Bilardi had also encouraged others to carry out attacks, blogging, it is time the unbelievers "felt pain".

He also praised Melbourne teen Numan Haider and Sydney siege killer Man Haron Monis as "gems of Muslims".
