The Transportation Security Administration has issued a classified warning about a potential attack by the Islamic State, the JV team against a target in the United States
According to Jana Winter at The Intercept, who reviewed the warning, the notice was released by TSA’s Transportation Security Operations Center.
A source told The Intercept the warning was broad, without any particular details referencing the kind of attack or where it may happen.
Airports in the Los Angeles area and other parts of Southern California pumped up their security as a result of the issued threat warning, NBC News reports. Threats of violence against uniformed personnel is a central focus of concern.
Over the last few months, we have made a number of security adjustments, including enhanced screening at select overseas airports and increasing random searches of passengers and carry-on luggage on flights inbound to the U.S., reflecting an evolving threat picture,” A DHS spokesman told NBC.
