Terrorist alert remains ‘substantial’

The chance of a terrorist attack in the Netherlands remains a possibility and because of this, the country’s threat level is still ‘substantial’, the counter-terrorism body NCTb said on Tuesday.

The latest review of the terrorism threat levels was sent to parliament on Tuesday.
The reason for the high level of alert is the fact that Jihadist training camps remain attractive to European Jihadists. This means that they could be ordered to carry out an attack on returning to Europe, the NCTb said.
