A large police operation was previously reported to be underway in Molenbeek, a neighborhood where many of those involved in the Paris attacks in November came from.
Abdeslam, who was one the most wanted men in Europe, is thought to be one of the masterminds of the attacks that killed 130.
Abdeslam’s fingerprints were found in an apartment raided in the Brussels area on Tuesday, Belgian Federal Prosecutor Eric Van der Sypt previously confirmed to ABC News. However, it was impossible to determine how old they were.
“They could be days — or even weeks — old,” the prosecutor said.
