Mossad helped Denmark thwart terror attacks last week

Israel’s Mossad helped Denmark foil a series of terror attacks, providing it with information that led to the arrest of several suspected jihadists.

The report, which did not cite its sources, said Mossad’s help had stopped attacks at the last minute.

Channel 12 reported that Israeli intelligence has helped thwart some 50 terror attacks around the world over the past two years.

Police in Denmark arrested 22 suspects in a series of raids across the Scandinavian country, saying they had thwarted attacks.

Six of those remained under arrest, and were ordered held in pre-trial custody for four weeks.

Authorities have been tight-lipped and have given no specifics about a potential target for the attack.
