Europol explained in a statement that the actions were coordinated from its headquarters in the city of The Hague and included the detection of contents and their referral to service providers in the network of networks for review.

The ultimate goal is to remove that content from the internet, something that depends on online service platforms and not Europol, the text said.

During the operation, the content of the so-called Dark Web was investigated, especially the illegal trade in banned explosives and suspicious transactions.

Several European Union member states such as Belgium, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Spain, and the United Kingdom participated in the investigation, as well as members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the United States.
