"After the Fussilet 33 organization was officially banned we are currently conducting searches in 24 objects in Berlin with the help of 460 policemen," the Berlin police said on Twitter.
Fussilet 33 is an organization, which had a mosque in Berlin that was frequently attended by Islamists. One such attendant was Anis Amri, the terrorist, who was responsible for killing 12 people after ramming a truck into the crowd at a Berlin Christmas market in December 2016.
