TEHRAN, Aug. 21 (MNA) – Explosions went off in three Dutch cities overnight, Dutch police said.

No one was hurt in the blasts, the police said on the X social network (formerly known as Twitter).

The explosions damaged a shoe store in the town of Vlaardingen, two houses in Amsterdam, and a house and a car in The Hague, the police said.

The NL Times news website reported the explosion at the shoe store took place at around 02:30, smashing a window and damaging the entrance door. The store had opened to customers last Saturday.
