A Twitter account belonging to a group of Islamic State supporters has its sights set on New Jersey Transit police.

The group that calls itself the Caliphate Cyber Army released the names and addresses of 55 NJ Transit officers on its Twitter page in early March and called for lone wolf attacks against the officers.

Twitter suspended the account but on Monday, through another account, the list surfaced again, WNBC reported.

“The New Jersey Transit Police Department is working with the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI on this matter,” NJ Transit spokeswoman Lisa Torbic said in a statement, and adding that the information was not breached from the NJ Transit website but “some information was breached from an outside vendor.”

The FBI told WNBC it is aware of the situation and providing assistance but according to sources who spoke to the station, there does not currently appear to be a credible threat.
