DHS assesses current terror threat and reissues the NTAS Bulletin

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan, has reissued the National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin pertaining to the terror threat to the US homeland. This marks the eighth iteration of the Bulletin on the homegrown terrorism threat since the first was released in December 2015.

The DHS states that:

“After carefully considering the current threat environment, as well as input from the Department’s intelligence and law enforcement partners, Acting Secretary McAleenan determined it is necessary to extend the NTAS Bulletin at this time.”

“Terrorist groups continue to inspire, enable and direct their followers to spread chaos using homemade weapons and by striking soft targets and crowded places. They also remain focused on conducting more sophisticated attacks using conventional weapons as well as new technologies and tactics.”
