In November, extremists attacked several venues across Paris, killing 130 people and injuring over 350 at restaurants, the Bataclan concert hall and in the vicinity of the Stade de France stadium. Responsibility for the attacks was claimed by the Islamic State (ISIL or Daesh) militant group, operating in Syria and Iraq, and outlawed in Russia.

Following the Paris attacks, Italy strengthened its security measures and maximize the alarm level.

Over the past two weeks, a wave of attacks has occurred in Europe, including a truck running over a celebrating crowd in France's Nice and a suicide bombing near an open-air music festival in Ansbach, a city in the German state of Bavaria, which made Europe urgently and extensively boost its safety and security measures.
