A suspicious package was found on Amstelveenseweg in Amsterdam Zuid on Wednesday morning. The package was found at kosher restaurant Ha Carmel, which was previously the target of vandalism multiple times.
The police were first dispatched to the scene at 10:36 a.m. The area around the restaurant was cordoned off in a wide radius while explosive experts from the police investigated, the Amsterdam police said on Twitter.
By 10:57 a.m. the situation was escalated to a Grip 1, which means that a commanding officer from one of the emergency services took command of the entire scene for all responding agencies.
The Ministry of Defense's explosive removal department was also deployed to the scene.
