Netherlands Raises Terrorism Warning Level

For the first time since 2009, the Netherlands has raised its terrorism warning rank to Level 3 - out of 4. This means that the National Coordinator for Fighting Terrorism and Safety (NCTV) considers terrorism a substantial threat to the country. Up until now, there was a Level 2 threat, which is a “limited threat.” The main concern is the return of Dutch Jihadists. Coordinator Dick Schoof said that there is a risk that the approximately 100 Dutch Jihadists abroad will influence others in the Netherlands to follow their path.
