Several European countries have announced the strengthening of police protection for Jewish communities following the attack by the terrorist group Hamas on Israel and the subsequent escalation of the conflict.

This information was reported by Politico.

European governments are concerned about the increase in anti-Semitic acts due to the ongoing hostilities between Israel and the Hamas group, which is supported by Iran, in Gaza. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared war against his country.

The London police stated that the events in Israel could lead to protests in the city in the coming days. Therefore, they are implementing an "appropriate law enforcement plan" to "balance the right to protest and prevent public order disturbances."

French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin has requested prefects throughout the country to enhance security for Jewish communities and has announced the convening of a meeting to assess the situation. He added that there are currently no threats to the security of the French Ministry of the Interior.

In Berlin, the police have announced that they have increased security measures at Jewish and Israeli institutions following the Hamas attack on Israel. The Central Council of Jews in Germany stated that they are in "intensive contact" with the authorities.

Similar security measures for Jewish communities have also been adopted in Spain and Italy.

To recap, on Saturday morning, the terrorist group Hamas launched a major attack on Israel from the Gaza Strip, marking the most significant escalation of the Arab-Israeli conflict in the last 50 years. According to the latest information, over 500 people have been killed as a result of Hamas' actions.

In response, the Israel Defense Forces declared a counterterrorism operation called "Operation Iron Swords" and began targeting Gaza's infrastructure.
