Denmark will mobilize the army to support the police in securing "Jewish and Israeli locations" in Copenhagen, the Danish Ministry of Defense announced today.
"The situation in Israel and Gaza is putting a lot of pressure on police resources. In this context, it has been decided that the armed forces will support surveillance of Jewish and Israeli locations in Copenhagen," such as a synagogue or the Israeli embassy, Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen said.
The soldiers will be deployed on December 6, for an indefinite period.
In Denmark, where between 6.000 and 8.000 Jews live, there have been more demonstrations since the start of the war between Israel and Hamas.
