SWAT teams found a large arsenal of high-caliber weapons hiding in a refrigerator next to a radical mosque in Germany.

The eye-opening find has German authorities fearful that other terrorist sleeper cells are active in Europe's most powerful country and waiting to strike on an unassuming public.

Per the Daily Caller:
 

Some of the weapons used to carry out the Jan. 7, 2015 Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris came from the vast weaponry left over from the Bosnian War in the 1990s. Other busts of terrorist cells have recovered weapons from Croatia, Serbia and Slovakia — these countries are under pressure from the European Union to tighten regulations for gun sales.

“The fear is large that Salafist sleeper cells, jihadis, and ISIS terrorists in Germany get support from foreign intelligence services that are not friendly to us,” Tipi said. “We can assume that the secret arsenals for a major attack are used not only in Germany but the whole of Europe. It would be very negligent if we do not recognize this danger and don’t uncover these arsenals.”

French authorities found 334 war grade weapons and made 223 arrests during raids in the aftermath of the Nov. 13 terrorist attack in Paris. About 160 suspicious mosques have or will be closed for radical activities in the country.
