These people could be conducting armed conflict in the Middle East, said Marek Biernacki, the head of a Sejm commission following a meeting with the deputy head of Poland’s Internal Security Agency, Jacek Gawryszewski.
The closed-door meeting covered “potential terrorist threat associated with the return of citizens of European countries (in particular the Schengen area) [as well as] participants of the armed conflict in the Middle East.”
Biernacki explained that national authorities are doing everything to make Poles feel safe. “Polish services are monitoring the situation and the threat of terrorism from Islamic countries,” he added. (rg)
