The continental championship will be held in Germany

Terrorists may attack European Football Championship matches using drones, Bild reports, citing experts. The continental championship will be held in Germany from June 14 to July 14, 2024.

The head of the German police union, Andreas Rosskopf, confirmed that "drones are becoming one of the biggest problems," so a "comprehensive nationwide ban on drone flights throughout Germany" will be introduced during the European Championship. According to him, law enforcement officers are well-equipped to counter drones. For example, they have anti-drone guns.

"It is ISIS that has been increasingly using drones in attacks and assaults since 2014-2015: both kamikaze drones and drones with explosives. Today, technology has become more accessible. This increases the real risk that killers will resort to this inexpensive and remotely controlled technology. Plans to use drones are ubiquitous in the relevant forums," Austrian terrorism researcher Nicholas Stockhammer told Bild.

The expert noted that terrorists now usually use small commercial drones purchased over the Internet.

"The danger will increase if they manage to capture modern military drones in the current war zones," Stockhammer said.
