The warning comes in response to recent anti-Islamic actions, such as the burning of a Koran in front of the Turkish embassy in Sweden, which have the potential to provoke anti-Western sentiment and lead to demonstrations.
Additionally, there is an increased threat of attacks against Western targets and places of worship. Dutch citizens in Turkey are advised to exercise caution and avoid demonstrations.
