US intelligence warns of possible July 4th ISIS-inspired attacks on American soil

Authorities are warning law enforcement officials of a possible terror attack on or around the Fourth of July — Independence Day.

The Daily Mail reported that the warning was based on specific intelligence.

The Department of Homeland Security, together with the National Counterterrorism Center and the FBI, issued a nationwide intelligence bulletin.

Jeh Johnson, Homeland Security Secretary, cautioned law enforcement to be “vigilant” around the holiday, CNN reported.

“Particularly with the upcoming July Fourth holiday here in the United States, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI continue to communicate with state and local law enforcement about what we know and see,” he said.

“We are encouraging all law enforcement to be vigilant and prepared. We will also adjust security measures, seen and unseen, as necessary to protect the American people.”

Without disclosing specifics, unnamed intelligence sources told NBC News that the threat of an Islamic State-inspired attack “is based on both intelligence and analysis.”

Authorities especially fear attacks by “lone wolves” who are encouraged by the Islamic State on social media, because their actions are difficult to predict.

The terrorist group’s “new normal” is to recruit members through social media.

Friday brought a worldwide escalation in terrorist activity, with attacks on employees at a gas plant in France, tourists in Tunisia and worshipers in Kuwait.
