Berlin Issues a Warning of Possible Terrorist Attacks Involving Chemicals
Germany fears Islamists could use chemicals during their attacks as a new means to intimidate European residents, German media wrote, referring to a recent report by the German government and the Federal Office for Criminal Issues said.
In particular, the report says that the Islamists are willing and able to “produce large amounts of chemicals and use them” to intimidate the population.
Among “realistic options,” the document lists a chemical attack on the drinking water supply and food poisoning.
Moreover, it also suggests that the attacks can be carried out on facilities or transport in the chemical industry, classifying them as those with a “high risk potential.”
