Merkel Admits: ‘We Are a Target for the Islamist Terrorists’

‘There have been several attacks in other countries as well and they are very much familiar with the challenges of terrorist attacks’

MERKEL (via translator): “Theoretically, we have known for a long time and the minister mentioned it, that we are a target for the Islamist terrorists and if then such an incident happens as the one we had at Breitscheidplatz, then there is something else so in every hour we are — our thoughts are with the victims. There have been several attacks in other countries as well and they are very much familiar with the challenges of terrorist attacks. I can say that in the last or in the previous years we have done all efforts in order to work for counterterrorism and also, we have observations of the Internet and this is why I am confident that during this test we are going through, we will persevere.”
