Terrorist Threat Assessment Netherlands 53

On the basis of the Terrorist Threat Assessment for the Netherlands (DTN) 53, the threat level is currently set at 3. A terrorist attack in the Netherlands is conceivable. At present, there are individuals and groups in the Netherlands that are becoming radicalised – or that are highly radicalised already – and pose a threat. Although there are no indications that anyone in the Netherlands is planning an attack, it remains conceivable that a lone actor could try to carry out one. In recent years, the majority of attacks in Europe have been carried out by lone actors whose extremist mindset may go hand in hand with psychosocial or psychological issues. The threat level is based on the elements set out below.
