Chaos in Israel, after Egypt the whole world fears being a target: controls intensified from London to Naples, passing through Venice

London police said they had increased patrols in some areas of the city following attacks on Israel by the Palestinian militant group Hamas.

“We are aware of a number of incidents… in relation to the ongoing conflict in Israel and the Gaza border,” the Metropolitan Police said on social media. “The Met has increased police patrols in some areas of London to provide a visible presence and reassure our communities.”

British Home Secretary Suella Braverman declared “zero tolerance for anti-Semitism or the glorification of terrorism on the streets of Britain.” “I expect the police to use the full force of the law against displays of support for Hamas, other proscribed terrorist groups or attempts to intimidate British Jews,” Braverman wrote on X, formerly Twitter

Italy isn’t sitting idle either: the level of surveillance in the Venice ghetto, one of the largest and oldest in Europe, has been raised after the escalation of the conflict in the Middle East. The prefect of Venice communicates this Michele Di Bari specifying that two Cosp (Committee for Public Order and Security) were summoned yesterday. Vigilance towards individual sensitive targets has been strengthened, starting with the top exponents of the community.

The Digos of the Naples Police Headquarters also raised the level of attention in the city after the attacks on Israel. Places of worship, such as the synagogue, and other regularly frequented locations are already monitored, in Naples as throughout the country, and manned by the Italian Army but in any case Digos (coordinated by the first director Antonio Bocelli) has set up specific monitoring services. Furthermore, according to what we learn, Digos has intensified its already constant contacts with the Neapolitan Jewish community.
