The anti-terror headquarters is issuing a heightened warning concerning the Swedish city of Malmo, the upcoming host of the international Eurovision Song Contest scheduled from March 7 to 11.

It's worth noting that the city is known as a hub for anti-Israel activity due to its sizable Middle Eastern population, and the October 7, 2023 massacre was met with public celebrations in Malmo.

"In recent months, there has been a surge in calls from World Jihad agitators and radical Islamists for attacks on Western targets, including Jewish and Israeli interests. There is particular concern regarding attacks that could garner significant media attention," states the document, referencing the recent apprehension of Islamists plotting a terrorist assault in the Swedish parliament.

The headquarters assesses it as probable that terrorists might exploit the anti-Israel sentiment to target Israelis attending the competition. While Swedish authorities are heightening security measures, Israeli tourists are not receiving dedicated protection like their compatriots participating in the event.

Consequently, the anti-terror headquarters has decided to raise the threat level in Malmo from second to third, though no changes are advised for the rest of Sweden.

Israelis contemplating a visit to the city are urged to reconsider their plans. Also, it is recommended that you download the Home Front Services application, which is available for both IOS and Android devices.
