Skip to comments.ISIS Holiday Horror, 'Christmas Blood' Attack Warnings Must Be Taken Seriously: Security Expert
Posted on 12/02/2017 7:05:14 AM PST by SeekAndFind
A security expert has warned that the Islamic State terror group's warnings of violence and bloodshed over the Christmas holiday season need to be taken seriously, given the lone wolf attacks that continue rattling the world.
"The recent spate of threats to attack during the upcoming holiday are significant and should be taken seriously by law enforcement agenciesm," said Jeffrey Treistman, an assistant professor of national security at the University of New Haven, according to The Hill. "It is essential that security experts remain vigilant during the upcoming Christmas holiday and closely scrutinize their list of radicalized individuals who are most likely to heed the Islamic State's call for violence."
Treistman, who previously worked for the U.S. Department of State as a policy advisor in Baghdad, Iraq, and was a consultant for the Department of Defense's African Command, pointed to the slaughter in Berlin on a Christmas market last year, when 12 people were killed by an IS-backed truck driver.
"Similar mistakes must not be repeated this year," he urged.
Though IS has lost much of its territory throughout Iraq and Syria following a series of major military defeats this year, the terror group continues claiming responsibility for lone wolf attacks around the world, including in America and Europe.
Earlier in November, the jihadists published a poster warning of "Christmas Blood" this season, seemingly targeting St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican.
