Berlin: Seven people, including members of Hamas, have been arrested in countries including Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands for plotting to attack Jewish institutions in Europe.
On October 7, Hamas launched a surprise attack on Israel. Since then, the Israel Defense Forces have continued to attack Gaza City. In this attack which is intensifying day by day, many innocent civilians including children and women are dying. International pressure for a ceasefire is mounting. However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has categorically stated that the Israeli army will continue to fight in Gaza.
Meanwhile, 7 people, including members of Hamas, have been arrested in countries including Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands on suspicion of plotting to attack Jewish institutions in Europe.
Three people have been arrested in the German capital Berlin, another in the Netherlands and three in Denmark. An investigation is underway to determine if there is any connection between the three arrests. The investigation revealed that the four arrested in Germany and the Netherlands had direct links to the Hamas movement.
The three arrested in Denmark will be charged under the Anti-Terrorism Act and will appear before the court, police said.
Commenting on the arrest, German Justice Minister Marco Buschmann said, “Following the horrific attacks by Hamas on the Israeli people, attacks on Jewish institutions have also increased in Germany in recent weeks. We must therefore do everything possible to ensure that Jews in our country do not have to fear for their safety.”
