Salah Abdeslam, the main suspect in the Paris attacks, which killed 130 people, expressed in court his admiration for the terrorist organization, according to Reuters.
Prosecutors believe that 32-year-old Salah Abdeslam is the only surviving member of an ISIS cell behind the gun and bomb attacks on bars, restaurants, the Bataclan concert hall and the Stade de France stadium on November 13, 2015.
On the ninth of September, Abd al-Salam acquitted 3 other defendants on the second day of his trial, which was held in Paris, over these attacks.
“They provided me with services, but they were ignorant of everything,” Abdel Salam said at the time, commenting on the possible responsibilities in the terrorist attacks, referring to the names of Muhammad Omari, Hamza Atto and Ali al-Qadi, 3 of his close associates in Brussels, who helped him during his escape after the attacks.
It is noteworthy that the Special Criminal Court in France is trying 28 defendants, including 6 people in absentia.
