ISIS Threatens US Air Bases

A-10 Thunderbolt II and F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter aircraft perform an 'Elephant Walk' on the runway this week during Exercise Beverly Herd 16-01 at Osan Air Base, Republic of Korea. The Elephant Walk was a demonstration of U.S. Air Force capabilities and strength and showcases the wing's ability to generate combat airpower in an expedient manner in order to respond to simulated contingency operations. The A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft are the 25th Fighter Squadron "Draggins" and the F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft are the 36th Fighter Squadron "Friends" from the 51st Fighter Wing, Osan AB, ROK; the additional F-16 aircraft are the 179th Fighter Squadron "Bulldogs" from the 148th Fighter Wing out of Duluth Air National Guard Base, Minnesota.

According to a South Korean intelligence agency, ISIS has gathered information on 77 NATO and U.S. air force bases around the world, and is calling on supporters to attack them.

According to National Intelligence Service (NIS) a hacking organization has obtained information on 77 different facilities, including the Osan Air Base in South Korea, and has released addresses and Google satellite maps. 

Four of those facilities are in South Korea, where one employee of a South Korean welfare organization was targeted directly, and is receiving special protection.

CNN reported the threat Monday, and said individuals in 21 countries were also named as targets.  Reportedly, at least 50 people suspected of having terrorist ties have been deported from South Korea in the past five years.

In a statement, NIS said terror against South Korean citizens and foreigners is “becoming a reality.”
