German Security Services Warn of Highest Terrorist Threat in Decades

Police in Berlin

 

BERLIN, December 23 (Sputnik) – The terrorist threat level in Germany is currently very high, with Germany’s involvement in the anti-Islamic State (IS) war a justification for a terrorist attack, the Bild reported Tuesday citing unattributed security services documents.

“It must be assumed that terrorist attacks of different scale and intensity are possible in the Federal Republic,” the document said as quoted by the tabloid. The organizers can be individual terrorists and “individual groups acting autonomously.”

Germany’s participation in the anti-IS struggle serves potential terrorists as a “justification for [their] terrorism,” according to the document.

Germany is part of a US-led anti-IS coalition formed by US President Barack Obama to reverse IS advances in Iraq and Syria.
