The terrorist threat in Switzerland remains high, but the country’s intelligence does not have information about the impending attacks, said spokesman for the country’s Federal Intelligence Service Isabelle Graber in an interview with RIA Novosti.

She noted that the attacks in Vienna and Nice confirm the forecasts of the Federal Intelligence Service.

“The terrorist threat in Switzerland remains high. At present, intelligence does not have specific information about possible attacks in Switzerland, ”Graber said.

According to her, at the same time, intelligence notes that in the short term, individual acts of violence may be committed in the country by some radical or mentally unbalanced individuals. A reaction from aggressive right-wing extremists to members or symbols of the Muslim communities present in Switzerland is also possible.

Intelligence officials believe that at present the most likely threat in Switzerland is attacks that require little organizational and logistical resources or are carried out by individual intruders or small groups.

The shooting attacks took place on Monday 2 November in six districts of Vienna, including a synagogue in the city center. As a result of the attacks, 22 people were injured, including one police officer. Four people became victims of the terrorist attack. One terrorist was killed by the police.
