Armed forces in Hamburg warned of likely attacks
    2017-July-7  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE German armed forces have issued a warning for all soldiers stationed in Hamburg against violent attacks from protesters at the upcoming G20 summit, the newspaper Spiegel reported Wednesday.

In response, a general ban on the wearing of uniforms in nonduty hours was imposed and strict security measures have been enacted at barracks.

According to internal security note issued by the Ministry of Defense, information obtained by German Military Counterintelligence Service (MAD) suggests that “soldiers moving around the city in their uniform during announced protests could become the target of spontaneous attacks by left-wing extremists who are willing to use violence.”

Several security instructions building on the insights of MAD have been compiled to ensure the safety of military personnel, including an order to appear in the wider urban agglomeration of Hamburg as civilians when off duty between Wednesday and Sunday.

The German armed forces believe that protests surrounding the G20 summit on Friday and Saturday will become a “focal point” for the potentially violent-scene of European left-wing extremists.

The protests, some of which have already clashed with police since the past weekend, are directed against the “G20 as representatives of the capitalist system which they oppose.”

The security note warned that the mobilization of individuals and groups towards this end had occurred in Germany “with great intensity” ahead of the summit.
