A fourth man, Nayef El Sayed, was charged with conspiring to prepare an act of terrorism earlier this week and has been remanded in custody.
Another man detained before the police carried out early morning counter-extremist raids in Melbourne on Tuesday was also expected to be charged over the alleged plan to storm the sprawling Holsworthy barracks with automatic weapons and kill as many soldiers as possible.
“These three were arrested yesterday. They’ve been charged with the same offence that the person has been charged with yesterday,” a spokeswoman for Victoria police said.
“We expect a fifth man who was already in custody on other matters will appear in court later today and be charged with the same offence.”
The group allegedly had links with Somalia’s hardline al-Shabaab insurgents and had sought a “fatwa,” or religious ruling, for their attack, which police said would have been the worst seen on Australian soil.
Police revealed details of the alleged plot after raids on 19 houses in the southern city of Melbourne, the culmination of a seven-month intelligence operation.
“Potentially this would have been, if it had been able to be carried out, the most serious terrorist attack on Australian soil,” Tony Negus, the acting Australian Federal Police chief, said.
Police allege the cell’s plan was to send a team of gunmen with automatic rifles on a suicide attack against Holsworthy Barracks, an army base on the outskirts of Sydney that houses commandos trained in counterterrorism, a Black Hawk helicopter squadron and thousands of troops.
