No information about the identity of the six detainees was released. Judicial authorities will decide Friday whether they should be charged, the state prosecutor’s office said. The raids, which involved special police units, took place in the inner city in the neighborhoods of Schaerbeck and Jette, the Belga news agency said. Three of the suspects were in a car driving near the building housing the prosecutor’s office, the report said. News of the operations came after French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said a terrorist attack had been thwarted in Paris with the arrest Thursday of a suspected terrorist whose plans for an attack were in an advanced state. Cazeneuve announced the arrest in a televised speech, saying an anti-terrorism operation was taking place as he spoke in Argenteuil near Paris. He said the suspect was a French national. As investigators began piecing together what happened in Tuesday’s attacks, which left at least 31 people dead and some 300 injured, media reports said two of the suspects were known to Belgian police and had violated their parole. Two of the dead attackers have been identified as the Brusselsborn brothers Ibrahim and Khalid Syrian army enters IS-held Palmyra BY ALBERT AJI AND SINAN SALAHEDDIN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DAMASCUS, Syria — Syrian government forces pushed into the ancient town of Palmyra, where Islamic State militants appeared on the verge of collapse Thursday, while in Iraq, a military spokesman announced the start of a long-awaited operation to recapture the IS-held northern city of Mosul. The extremist group has been losing ground in Syria and Iraq for months under a steppedup campaign of U.S.-led and Russian airstrikes, as well as ground assaults by multiple forces in each country. The retaking of Palmyra — a UNESCO world heritage site whose fall to the militants last May sent shock waves through archaeological circles and beyond — would be a significant victory for the Syrian government. But the operation to unseat the group in Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, is likely to take much longer and be far more difficult. The advance on Palmyra came after government forces, backed by Russian airstrikes, managed to capture several hills and high ground around the town this week. On Thursday, Syrian state TV broadcast footage of its reporter, embedded with the Syrian military, speaking live from the entrance of Palmyra and saying that as of midday, the fighting was concentrated near the famed archaeological site on the southwestern edge of the town. Cracks of gunfire and explosions echoed as the reporter spoke. Clues emerge about attack Policemen guard the outside of a house that has been the subject of a police raid in the suburb of Schaerbeek in Brussels, Friday. ALASTAIR GRANT /THE ASSOCIATED PRESS El Bakraoui, who were 29 and 27 years old, respectively. Both were convicted criminals who violated their parole, but had not been re-jailed, the Belga news agency reported. It quoted Belgian Justice Minister Koen Geens as saying that “it is not easy to bring back to prison people who have not respected the conditions of their release in a flagrant manner.” Belgian federal prosecutors had said Wednesday that the brothers’ criminal history was “not linked to terrorism.” But they disclosed Thursday that Belgium had issued an international arrest warrant for Khalid El Bakraoui on Dec. 11, amid suspicions that he had used a false identity to rent a hideout allegedly used by the terrorists who carried out last year’s Paris attacks. A claim by Turkey, which said it had warned Belgium last year about Ibrahim El Bakraoui, also raised questions about information sharing. It was disclosed that Ibrahim El Bakraoui was detained by Turkey near the Syrian border and expelled. But Geens said Thursday that Turkey only informed Belgium about the deportation after El Bakraoui had landed at the Schiphol airport in the Netherlands. Dutch authorities told their parliament that Turkey did not inform them about the reasons for the deportation and that they had no reason to arrest El Bakraoui since he was not listed in Dutch or international police databases. Geens and Interior Minister Jan Jambon are expected to further explain the incident to the Belgian parliament on Friday. Both men offered to resign, but Prime Minister Charles Michel did not accept. Khalid El Bakraoui died Tuesday while helping carry out the suicide bombing at the Maelbeek subway station. His brother was one of two suicide bombers who died in the attack at Brussels Airport. Investigators are trying to track down another suspect who involved in the airport bombing who is believed to still be on the run. State broadcaster RTBF reported Thursday that a second man also likely took part in the attack on the Maelbeek station. The second attacker who died at the airport has not been officially identified, but Belgian media have named him as Najim Laachraoui, who had been sought in connection with the Paris attacks. His brother, Mourad Laachraoui, on Thursday condemned the Brussels and Paris attacks, saying that he had not had any contact with Najim since he left for Syria in 2013, Belgian media reported.
