NEW YORK — Major news outlets are reporting about a potential terror threat for Monday, November 7.
According to CBS News, U.S. intelligence believes al Qaeda could be planning attacks in three states: New York, Texas and Virginia.
No specific locations or targets are given but U.S. authorities are taking the threat seriously, though the sources stress the intelligence is still being assessed.
A senior FBI official told CBS News, “The counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States. The FBI, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, shares and assesses intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety.”
Earlier this week, an alert warned local police of “polling places” being seen as “attractive targets” for “lone wolf”-type attacks by individuals motivated by violent extremist ideologies, sovereign citizen or other extremist activity.
