The Greek Deputy Minister of citizen protection Nikos Toskas confirmed today that the two members of ISIS Mahmut Almahmod and Ahmad Almohamad, who took part in the Paris attacks at the Stade de la France, passed through the Greek island of Leros as Syrian refugees in the beginning of October.
“There were two incidents in which we worked together with the French authorities and which we identified quickly. They passed through Leros in the beginning of October and they took part in the Paris attacks. The French authorities asked us for their data and we gave them really quickly because there had been a very good identification process in Leros” said Tosksas earlier this morning.
Mahmut Almahmod was registered in Leros on October 3, together with Ahmad Almohamad, whose passport was found by the French authorities at the site where he was found dead on the night of November 13, when the French capital faced terrorist attacks from ISIS.
We should point out that even though it was confirmed that Mahmut Almahmod passed through Leros on October 3 — as the fingerprints of the dead terrorist in Paris were identified by the Greek authorities — the passport he used was also proven to be fake, since it has “appeared” at least 8 times in Europe. Today’s developments, prove, that this second man’s papers are also fake which is the reason why the French authorities are seeking more information.
