Al-Qaeda has recently issued threats against Denmark and Sweden in response to the Quran burnings, urging Muslims to seek revenge.
The terrorist organization published these threats through its official media channel. Despite the seriousness of the situation, experts believe these threats may not significantly impact Sweden's security, considering existing threats from various Middle Eastern actors.
Swedish terrorism researcher Hans Brun, linked to King's College in London, explains that the threats appear to be a call to action for people globally, rather than a well-organized plot. While the primary impact might be felt by Danish and Swedish diplomats in the Middle East, experts note that such threats underscore the increased focus on Sweden from Islamist extremism.
