The United States’ Department of Homeland Security has released a new terrorism threat advisory, a month to the September 11 terror attacks anniversary, Oyogist reports.
According to the National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin, the United States is currently battling a “heightened threat environment” from both domestic terrorists “and those inspired or motivated by foreign terrorists and other malign foreign influences.”
This “demonstrates that foreign terrorist organizations continue efforts to inspire US-based individuals susceptible to violent extremist influences,” DHS said.
The DHS was established by the United States government shortly after 9/11 to issue out Terrorism threats.
In recent times, the United States, which considers AQAP the terror group’s most dangerous branch, has carried out a campaign of drone strikes against its fighters in Yemen since soon after the 9/11 attacks.
