In the third time since March, a vehicle has been set on fire that belongs to a member of the right-wing Alternative Für Deutschland party in Germany.

The AfD says they are the victim of far-left violence.

Frank Hansel, chief whip for AfD in the local parliament for the Berlin city-state posted a photo on twitter showing his burnt out Jaguar car.

“What’s really bad is that people are almost getting used to this leftist orgy of violence, and so nothing follows from the CDU, the SPD, or the FDP. But the middle class is also being attacked here.”

The attack is being investigated by police and confirmed that the incident was being treated as an act of “arson with a possible political motive”.

This however is not the first time that a car belonging to a member of AfD has been set on fire recently.

On the 2nd of March, a vehicle belonging to Tino Chrapulla, AfD co-chairman, was set on fire outside his home in Saxony.

On the 10th of March, a vehicle belonging to an AfD politician in Berlin was set on fire. And in another indicent the very same day, windows at an AfD politician was broken with stones and the words “Antifa” was spraypainted on the wall.

In 2017, the right-wing AfD party became the third largest party in Germany with 12.6% of the vote and winning 94 seats in the Bundestag. The party is known for being skeptic of mass migration.

There is a history of violent attacks against members of the AfD party in Germany.

In 2019, Frank Magnitz, party leader of AfD in Bremen was severely injured after being beaten up in an attack seen by police as politically motivated.

He had left a new year reception when he was beaten over the head with an object.

Just shortly before that attack in 2019, party offices in Döbeln was bombed. That attack damaged doors and windows of the AfD office and set fire to promotional materials. Nearby cars were reportedly also damaged.
