Al Qaeda is responsible for the recent spate of forest fires in Europe, Russian security service chief Alexander Bortnikov claimed on Wednesday.

“Forest fires in European Union countries should be considered one of the new trends in Al Qaeda’s ‘thousand cuts’ strategy. This approach allows them to inflict significant damage on the economy and morale without any serious preparation, technical equipment, or financial outlay” Bortnikov told the 11th meeting of Russian and partner states’ security and law enforcement services in Moscow.

Security services had only minimal chances of catching these arsonists, he added, supporting his claims with content on extremist websites talking about “forest jihad” – including suggestions about the most effective ways of starting a forest fire.

Bortnikov also said the security services’ current priority is countering the spread of terrorist activity in the Middle East and North Africa, adding international terror networks could use these internal conflicts for their own ends, “threatening the stability of entire regions” and “posing a threat to the entire international community.”
