Germany probes if Iran pondering attacks on US targets, report


German media are reporting that prosecutors are investigating suspicions that Iran might be planning attacks on American targets in the country.

Der Spiegel magazine cited head federal prosecutor Harald Range on Thursday as saying prosecutors are investigating whether Iran may be planning attacks on U.S. military facilities in the event of an American attack on Iran. Federal police head Joerg Ziercke said there is no immediate danger.

Neither Range nor Ziercke’s office will comment further. The U.S. Embassy and U.S. military say they are aware of the report but it’s against policy to comment on security measures.

The Iranian Embassy could not be reached by phone and did not return an email request for comment.

Germany is home to many U.S. military facilities, including the Ramstein and Spangdahlem air bases.
