Denmark orders military to protect Jewish, Israeli sites amid rising antisemitism, terror threat

The Danish government has ordered the military to assist police protecting Jewish and Israeli sites, Bloomberg reports.

Denmark’s Defense Ministry says troops will help protect a number of sites, including the Israeli embassy and the synagogue in Copenhagen.

“The terrorist threat against Denmark is serious,” says Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsenm, according to the news outlet. “And the conflict in the Middle East has led to a completely unacceptable rise in antisemitism and more uncertainty among Jews in Denmark.”
