Seven people, including at least four suspected Hamas terrorists, were arrested in three European countries this week for allegedly plotting terrorist attacks against Jews.

The arrests come as Israel continues to hunt down the Hamas terrorists responsible for murdering 1,200 Israelis during the October 7 terror attacks in which men, women, and children were subjected to barbaric acts of sadistic violence, including gang rape, being burned alive, beheaded, and more.

The arrests took place in Germany, Denmark, and the Netherlands, the three countries said on Thursday.

German Justice Minister Marco Buschmann said in a statement that German law enforcement “in cooperation with Dutch authorities, today arrested four members of Hamas who were planning attacks on Jewish institutions in Europe.”

“Abdelhamid Al A., Mohamed B., Ibrahim El-R. and Nazih R. have been longstanding members of HAMAS and have participated in HAMAS operations abroad,” prosecutors said in a statement. “They are closely linked to the military branch’s leadership.”

Three of the suspects were arrested in Germany while another was arrested in the Netherlands. Three additional suspects were arrested in Denmark on terrorism-related charges, but it was not clear if they were connected to the other four suspects who had been arrested.

“On behalf of HAMAS, Abdelhamid Al A. started searching for an underground weapons cache in Europe no later than spring 2023, which the organisation had created in the past in a conspiratorial manner,” prosecutors said. “He received his orders from HAMAS leaders in Lebanon. The weapons were due to be taken to Berlin and kept in a state of readiness in view of potential terrorist attacks against Jewish institutions in Europe. In October 2023, Abdelhamid Al A., Mohamed B. and Nazih R. travelled repeatedly from Berlin to look for the weapons, with Ibrahim El-R. providing assistance.”


The news comes as the FBI and Department of Homeland Security issued a new public announcement this week warning about the potential for Islamic terrorist attacks in the U.S. because of Israel’s war with the Islamic terrorists of Hamas.

“FBI and DHS assess that ongoing tensions related to the conflict between Israel and Hamas likely heighten the threat of lone actor violence targeting large public gatherings throughout the winter, including holiday-related, faith-based, New Year’s Eve, and First Amendment protected events related to the conflict,” the agencies said in a written statement. “Although this announcement is not in response to any specific plotting activity, these targets likely remain attractive to lone actors inspired by a range of ideologies due to their accessibility and symbolic nature.”
