Abdelhamid Abaaoud, a Belgian citizen, claimed to have been the third, surviving member of this terror cell in a story in the ISIS magazine Dabiq. In late 2015 he apparently planed the terror attacks in Paris that killed 129 people and was killed himself a few days later in a police raid in St. Deniz


Identity of suspects

The two men killed during a firefight with Belgium's special forces in Verviers on Thursday night have been named locally as Redouane Hagaoui and Tarik Jadaoun, who had recently returned from fighting in Syria.
Hagaoui, 23, also known as Abu Khalid Al Maghribi, had been under surveillance by Belgium's secret service after returning from fighting with radical Islamists in Syria.
He left his job as a cook to travel to Syria via Turkey last January after telling his parents he was going to visit relatives in their country of origin, Morocco.
The other man killed, Jadaoun, is thought to be of Chechen origin."
