Officials warn of potential ISIS attacks in U.S.
A joint intelligence bulletin issued by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security warns that Islamic State forces may be planning attacks against military personnel within the United States. The bulletin, which was distributed to various law enforcement agencies, urges current and former U.S. military personnel to erase any information from their social media accounts that may reveal service members’ identity or attract the attention of Islamic State forces and its supporters. Military personnel are also advised to “routinely exercise operational security in their interactions online.”
Officials fear attacks similar to those in Canada earlier this year, when two uniformed Canadian soldiers were killed by men claiming to be followers of ISIL.
