FBI Warns Law Enforcement of Potential Terror Threat on Thanksgiving
The FBI issued an alert to law enforcement throughout the country warning that terrorist groups are planning to attack venues on Thanksgiving.
The alert specifically warned about homegrown terrorists who could be inspired by ISIS, who earlier in the month called on their followers to attack the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.
ISIS called for their supporters to commit vehicles attacks like the deadly Bastille Day attack in Nice, France. Rumiyah magazine, an ISIS run publication, wrote, “… a vehicle is plunged at a high speed into a large congregation of [unbelievers]…leaving behind a trail of carnage.”
John Miller, the NYPD’s deputy commissioner for intelligence and counterterrorism, said Monday that the NYPD has prepared for vehicle-borne attacks since the terror attack in France.
The FBI warning said other potential targets over the holidays included shopping malls, special events, and crowded venues. Locations in Washington, D.C. and Virginia were described as “target-rich zones.”
Department of Homeland Security also issued a warning Tuesday in response to the threat of terrorism at the Macy’s parade.
