The German spy chief has confirmed the possibility of massive terror attacks in Germany as his agency has obtained information on 17 ISIS militants who had entered Europe under the guise of refugees.
The biggest threat to Germany’s security is the possibility of terror attacks similar to the shooting and bombing that took place in Istanbul last week, Hans Georg Maassen, the head of country’s domestic intelligence agency, said in an interview to Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung on Saturday.
“We can't rule out attacks like those in Istanbul also happening in our country,” Maassen said.
The German Special Services know about at least 17 Islamic State militants who entered the European Union pretending to be refugees, Maassen added.
“There is strong evidence that… 17 people have arrived under Islamic State instructions," Maassen said.
The majority of terrorists on the list were either neutralized, or are currently behind bars. In particular, two of the suspects were killed in November during the Paris attacks.
