Berlin: German security forces are on high alert as fears grow that terror attacks by radical Islamists might be carried out in any part of the country, according to a leaked report published Tuesday by the Bild newspaper.

According to the confidential report seen by the paper, Germany`s participation in the fight against the Sunni radical group Islamic State (IS) may be used as a justification for terrorist activities.

Security forces believe about 150 German Muslims, out of the 550 or so who travelled to Syria and other areas with a strong presence of jihadis, have by now returned to the country, the daily said.

Possible perpetrators could be individuals or as members of small groups, the report added.

The security sources said it was not possible to predict the targets that could be attacked.
