Police fear spike in terror after hit on envoy’s home

Government officials are bracing for a resurgence in domestic terrorism following Monday’s attack on the residence of the German ambassador in Athens, Kathimerini understands, but Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias insisted Wednesday that the authorities would not give in to urban guerrillas seeking to destabilize the country.

“Greek society will fight terrorism in 2014 and, united, it will win,” the minister said, noting that the shots fired on Monday at the Athens home of Wolfgang Dold by assailants wielding Kalashnikov assault rifles were “shots fired against Greek society, the Greek state and its efforts for recovery.”

There had been no claim of responsibility by late last night for the bloodless hit on Dold’s residence but police believe that it bears the hallmarks of Nikos Maziotis, the convicted leader of the Revolutionary Struggle guerrilla group who has been at large since the summer of 2012.

There are fears that Greek guerrilla groups that have been dormant for some time are in the process of reforming and that new attacks are likely, a police official told Kathimerini without determining what targets any new attacks might involve.

“People who were charged in connection with terrorist activities but then released and others who flirted with terrorist organizations in the past are today playing a key role in rebuilding domestic terrorism,” the source said.
