OCTOBER 14 1988
“I can not give you any further details regarding my involvement.”
Marwan Khreesat – Interrogation by BKA officers (October 27 1988)
On Oct. 14 1988, Mohamed Mougrabi returned to Uppsala, Sweden. During his return trip, he was accompanied by Jihad Chaaban and Mohamed Sami Orfali. Both men entered Sweden as illegal aliens. They took the ferry from Kiel to Goteborg, and then travelled to Uppsalla.
Mohamed Mougrabi will later be prosecuted by the Swedish authorities for assisting them to enter Sweden illegally. He pled guilty to that crime.
In June 1990, Jihad Chaaban and Mohamed Sami Orfali were expelled from Sweden for unspecified terrorism activities. The nature of these activities was never revealed.
Intelligence – Khreesat
Marwan Khreesat was born in 1945 in Amman, Jordan. At the age of four, he attended an Islamic College. He studied there until the age of fourteen.
He never did military service nor learned a trade. He helped his father business as an electrician. But in truth, Khreesat was no ordinary electrical appliance repairman. He was the senior bomb maker of Jibril PFLP-GC.
According to MOSSAD, Khreesat was implicated in the 1970 bombing of a Swissair airliner in which 47 people died. There is also strong evidence that Khreesat had been instrumental in the 1972 bombing of an El Al plane. The bomb consisted of 250 grammes of explosive hidden in a radio and triggered by a barometric switch.
Khreesat retired from terrorism activities soon after the bombing of the El Al airliner. And then, in 1986, he rejoined the PFLP-GC for reasons that have never been explained.
Jibril has personally ordered him to join Dalkamoni in Neuss. Whatever the reason of his come back, his presence in Germany is a clear sign that an act of terror is about to be committed.
“Who did the operation?” he asked in a post on the 25th anniversary of the blast. “Israel? Iran? Libya? Who carried the Toshiba explosive device [in which the bomb was hidden]? … Did the explosive device come from Malta airport like the American intelligence agencies say?… When will these riddles be solved.”
