Police in Austria carried out searches on Monday morning in four federal states in a major anti-terrorist campaign. However, the action has nothing to do with last week’s terrorist attack in Vienna.

According to the newspaper Kronen newspaper at least sixty apartments, houses, shops and club buildings were searched almost simultaneously. The police arrested thirty suspects.

According to the Interior Minister, Karl Nehammer, the raids as part of the operation targeted “criminal, extremist and inhumane” organizations. In the investigation, seventy people and various organizations are suspected of belonging to or supporting terrorist organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood or branches of Hamas. There would also be money laundering.

The raids were in the states of Styria, Carinthia, Vienna and Lower Austria. Nehammer said the raids were intended to “wipe out political Islam from root and branch.”

The action would not be directly related to the attack in Vienna on November 2, but is the result of “intensive and extensive investigations that have been carried out over more than a year,” said justice.

Last Monday’s attack by a jihadist gunman in Vienna’s historic city center killed four people. It was the first major attack of its kind in Austria in decades and the first attributed to a jihadist.
