The Hague, Holland, (SANA)-Holland authorities raised degree of alarm over the increasing terrorist attacks threat to the level of “big threat” fearing the return of what they called “jihadists” from the battlefields in Syria.

“The number of jihadists who traveled from Holland to Syria has rapidly increased and there is a danger they may acquire experience in the conflict areas and pose a threat when they return to Holland,” AFP quoted the National Coordination Body for Security and Counter-Terrorism as saying in a statement.
Netherlands’ Public Broadcasting Body last week said that nearly 100 Dutch citizens are fighting in Afghanistan, Somalia, but the majority of them are fighting in Syria who mostly join Jabhat al-Nusra.
