The Islamic Jihad Group, also known as the Islamic Jihad Union (QDe.119) was founded in 2002 as an offshoot of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (QDe.010) whose leaders, Najmiddin Kamolitdinovich Jalolov (deceased) and Suhayl Fatilloevich Buranov (deceased), have contacts with Al-Qaida (QDe.004).
Adem Yilmaz attended a training camp of the IJU in South Asia in 2006, where he received theoretical and practical training in explosives. Since the end of 2006, he formed a group with the objective of carrying out bomb attacks inter alia against institutions of the United States of America in Germany. To this end, the group acquired a considerable quantity of hydrogen peroxide solution, which when mixed with other components could have produced a substance with an explosive power comparable to approximately 550 kilograms of TNT. Furthermore, the group procured the additional means needed for carrying out the attacks - such as, for instance, electrical devices for triggering the detonation - as well as several detonators. The manufactured explosives were to be placed in several vehicles and detonated in Germany in front of discotheques and pubs frequented by citizens of the United States of America and/or at an airport, with the aim of killing or injuring as many people as possible.
He was arrested on 4 September 2007 in Medebach, Germany and on 4 March 2010, the Higher Regional Court in Düsseldorf, Germany sentenced him to 11 years imprisonment for membership of a terrorist organization abroad, conspiracy to murder, causing an explosion, coercion of constitutional organs and preparation of a serious criminal offence involving an explosion.
