Recent ISIS terror attacks have caused the U.S. State Department to issue a rare warning for Americans traveling overseas during the holiday season.
Breaking tonight, according to Politico:
“The U.S. State Department issued an unusual worldwide travel alert on Monday, warning of a heightened risk of attacks by ISIL, Al Qaeda and other terrorist networks.
“Authorities believe the likelihood of terror attacks will continue as members of ISIL/Da’esh return from Syria and Iraq,” the department said in a statement, using the Arabic acronym for the group also known as the Islamic State. “Additionally, there is a continuing threat from unaffiliated persons planning attacks inspired by major terrorist organizations but conducted on an individual basis.”
The department cited recent attacks in France, Nigeria, Denmark, Turkey and Mali, as well as the bombing of a Russian airliner in Egypt, as reasons for issuing the alert.”
