The first explosion happened around 1 am in Mortsel. An explosive exploded against the front door of a house in Vuurkruisenlaan. The damage was limited. The police set up a perimeter so that the DOVO mine clearance service could make the necessary findings. The resident of the house was not injured.

An hour and a half later, an explosive went off in Sint-Antonius-Zoersel. There the front door of a house in the Kerkhoflei was blown up. Once again, the DOVO mine clearance service had to arrive on site to make observations. Here the damage to the front door was considerable. There were no injuries here either. “It was a bit of a shock because there was a huge bang last night,” said a local resident. “We don’t really understand why and what exactly happened. Seems like a good couple to us. Of course, it could also be a mistake again?”

Further research will have to determine whether all this is related to reprisals from the drug environment. It has been restless again in recent weeks. For example, an attack was committed in Kalmthout last week. Two Dutch people are currently in jail for this.
