Dutch police arrest ISIS recruiters in Holland

(Den Haag) Police in the Netherlands (in conjunction with the German police) have arrested 3 people on charges of recruiting for jihad in Syria and Iraq and inciting hatred. A 24-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday and this was followed by the arrests of a 32-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman on Thursday. All 3 have been remanded in custody.

All three are suspected of sedition and inciting hatred among others through various social media and websites, aiming to incite a terrorist crime, according to the prosecutor. All were part of a group that attacked an anti-ISIS demonstration in July this year in the Schilderswijk quarter in The Hague. This demonstration caused uproar after anti-Semitic slogans were called.
