Attackers targeted a mosque in Germany's Dortmund with Molotov cocktails late Sunday night, but only material damage was caused, thanks to early intervention.

The attackers who targeted Eving Grand Mosque, which operates under the Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB), are suspected to belong to far-right groups or be PKK terrorist organization sympathizers.

The immediate response to douse the fire sparked by the Molotov cocktails thrown at the mosque prevented any possible casualties, reports said.

German police have launched a probe into the incident.

Supporters of the PKK terror group and its Syrian offshoot the People's Protection Units (YPG) have been terrorizing Germany, as they do in many other European countries, under the guise of protesting Turkey's counter-terrorism operation in northern Syria.

At least 14 attacks have been carried out by YPG/PKK supporters across Germany since Oct. 9.
