Weeks after the Christmas market attack in Berlin, German government reportedly issued a paper stating the country is at “high risk” of terrorist attacks carried out by “Islamist-motivated perpetrators” who may employ large amounts of chemicals to target drinking water supplies.

The government apparently takes the threat seriously as the paper – accessed by Bild magazine – directs the German armed forces, intelligence agencies and emergency services to prepare for action in the event of a chemical attack.

“A determined and well-trained terrorist group is likely to be in a position to exploit Germany’s potential chemical hazards in order to stage an attack,” says the report jointly prepared by the government and the federal police (BKA) to evaluate level of threats to civilian population. 

Islamist-motivated perpetrators are able “procure and use large amount of chemicals,” it states, also describing “realistic options” of a chemical attack.
