The latest resilience news from around the world

The US Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro N. Mayorkas, has issued a new National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin regarding the heightened terrorism threat environment across the United States. The Bulletin states that the ‘threat environment to the Homeland is diverse and challenging, especially leading up to and following the 20th Anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks as well as religious holidays that could serve as catalyst for targeted violence’

Threats in the US Homeland include those posed by domestic terrorists, individuals and groups engaged in grievance-based violence, and those inspired or motivated by foreign terrorists and other malign foreign influences. These actors are increasingly exploiting online forums to influence and spread violent extremist narratives and promote violent activity. 

The Bulletin says that ‘leading up to the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula recently released its first English-language copy of Inspire magazine in over four years, which demonstrates that foreign terrorist organizations continue efforts to inspire US-based individuals susceptible to violent extremist influences.’
