An ISIS-supporter has urged his online followers to launch an attack by injecting poisons into ice creams in the supermarke, as heard by jurors at a court hearing. Thirty-one-year-old terror suspect Husnain Rashid also allegedly urged ISIS supporters to attack Prince George at his school.

Woolwich crown court heard on Wednesday that Rashid of Nelson, Lancashire has shared with his followers on his online channel a sort of “e-toolkit for terrorism.” He had provided advice to lone wolf terrorists on how they can launch attacks using bombs, chemicals, knives, and poison.

Rashid works as a teacher at the Muhammadi mosque.

Jurors heard that Rashid had advised ISIS supporters to visit the prince at Thomas' Battersea school in south-west London.

The online terrorist is charged with encouraging terrorist acts by posting the little prince’s photo, as well as the address of the school that he goes to. The photograph also showed a silhouette of Jihadi fighters along with the threat that reads, “even the royal family will not be left alone.”

Rashid was arrested when police raided his home in Nelson.

His activities were described to be “prolific,” according to prosecutor Annabel Darlow. Running an online channel under the name Lone Mujahid, Rashid specializes in helping lone wolf attackers and uploads resources intended for those who are planning to launch attacks.

He is also accused of providing jihadist Omar Ali Hussain 'Repunzel' information that can be used in the battle.


The prosecutor adds:

“But within that specialty, he offered assistance with almost every conceivable type of attack capable of being launched by a single individual; attacks with poison, vehicles, weapons, bombs, chemicals and knives.”

Darlow also told the court that the suspect published magazines for his lone wolf audience. Rashid reportedly wanted to go to Syria and fight for the terrorist group.

Rashid denies six offenses relating to terrorist acts. The trial continues and is expected to last for six weeks.
