Germany: Most of the attacks on political parties are directed against the AfD

BERLIN. In the second quarter of this year, too, the AfD became the main victim of attacks against political parties. Its members and institutions were attacked 95 times. This also includes arson and physical attacks, reported the dpa news agency, citing a response from the Federal Ministry of the Interior to a request from the AfD parliamentary group.

The security authorities recorded a total of 262 attacks on political parties in Germany in April, May and June. Even in the case of the serious attacks, 14 of the 22 acts were directed against the AfD.

In the past, the AfD was the target of crime most often. When it came to attacks on representatives and members of political parties, it was by far in the first place. The authorities recorded 112 attacks across Germany between October and December last year on offices or facilities of the parties represented in the Bundestag. With 62 cases, the AfD accounted for more than half. 58 of them are left-wing motivated according to the criminal investigation service.
