The Department of Homeland Security has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin for the United States of America.

What does this mean?

BULLETIN: Describes current developments or general trends regarding threats of terrorism.

The bulletin, issued January 4th 2020, indicates there is no specific or credible threat that the agency is aware of, but cautions that there is the potential for an Iranian attack in response to a recent U.S. strike in Iraq that killed a key IRGC-Quds Force commander.

While new bulletins may be issued as new information becomes available, there are two types of Alert that citizens should be on the lookout for:

ELEVATED ALERT: Warns of a credible terrorist threat against the United States.

IMMINENT ALERT: Warns of a credible, specific and impending terrorist threat against the United States.

The Department of Homeland Security encourages citizens to listen to local law enforcement and public safety officials.
