“We are talking about a right-wing extremist terrorist act committed by a lone criminal,” TASS quoted her as saying.
She noted that the conclusions are drawn from the fact that the criminal acted on the basis of anti-Semitic, right-wing extremist motives, and his goal was “the Jewish community in the synagogue in Halle.”
In turn, the Prosecutor General of Germany Peter Frank said that about 4 kg of explosives were found in the car of the suspect. So, according to him, the shooter was going to kill more people in the synagogue.
Earlier, French President Emmanuel Macron on Twitter strongly condemned the shooting at Galle and wrote that "the anti-Semitic attack in Galle is a shock."
On October 9, shooting began at a Jewish cemetery near the synagogue in Galle, killing two people.
At the time of the incident, from 70 to 80 parishioners gathered for the celebration of Yom Kippur in the synagogue.
The German federal prosecutor's office, which is responsible for conducting investigative measures in the event of terrorist acts, has taken charge of the shooting investigation.
The German Federal Criminal Police Office reported that the crime was committed by two or three attackers who had one or more vehicles at their disposal.
