EU officials are warning of a big risk of terrorist attacks during the Christmas season.

The European Home Affairs Commission, Ylva Johansson, mentioned that societal polarization from the Israel-Hamas conflict is increasing the violence risk.

The EU is allocating an extra €30m for added security. The alert follows a deadly stabbing in Paris, and German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser emphasizes the need to monitor threats and propaganda.

Hate crimes have surged in Europe since the Israel-Hamas conflict. The warning comes after a recent attack near the Eiffel Tower, where a German tourist was killed.

The suspect, previously jailed for a terror plot, pledged allegiance to ISIS.

Germany is also on high alert after detaining individuals planning attacks on Christmas markets. The source of this information is BBC.
