The Dutch counterterrorism agency raised the country’s threat alert to the second-highest level, citing a substantial possibility of an attack.

This is the first time the threat level has been this high since the end of 2019.

The agency attributed the increased threat to the violent conflict in Israel and the Palestinian territories, Quran desecrations in Europe, and calls for attacks from terrorist organizations, particularly from jihadism. (Trending: Here Are The Most Disturbing Ways Hunter Biden Spent His Millions)

European Union’s home affairs commissioner, Ylva Johansson, warned that Europe is facing a ” huge risk of terrorist attacks ” over the holidays.

The Dutch National Coordinator for Counterterrorism and Security said, “the violent conflict in Israel and the Palestinian territories, Quran desecrations in various European countries and calls for attacks from terrorist organizations have increased the threat from jihadism.”

The report added, “the threat from right-wing extremism and anti-institutional extremism remains unabated.”

The agency said that this assessment does not require law enforcement to take particular actions, but it “enables security partners (such as the police, municipalities and ministries) to take measures to combat the threat.”

The report also mentioned the unabated threat from right-wing extremism and anti-institutional extremism.

The alert comes in the wake of recent attacks in neighboring European countries, including a fatal stabbing in Paris and a shooting in Brussels.
