THREE of four men arrested on Wednesday morning over last week's fatal terrorist attack at Parramatta police headquarters were targeted in Australia's biggest counter-terrorism raids a year ago.

Police arrested four males aged between 16 and 22 in counter-terror raids across western Sydney.

A fifth person, a 24-year-old man from Merrylands, was also arrested but was not detained as part of the joint counter-terror raids operation.

He was arrested as a result of an outstanding warrant for identity fraud and other fraud matters.

Police allege the four men arrested in the counter-terrorism operation are directly linked to the fatal shooting of police accountant Curtis Cheng outside the Parramatta police HQ last Friday.
