Today, Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly announced an updated National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin pertaining to the homegrown terror threat, which will extend to 15 November 2017.
Since 2015, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has used this Bulletin to draw attention to the continuing threat from homegrown terrorists, many of whom are inspired to violence online by foreign terrorist organizations.
“After careful consideration of the current threat environment and input from intelligence and law enforcement partners, I have made the decision to update and extend for six months the NTAS Bulletin based on the persistent threat from homegrown terrorists,” said Secretary Kelly. “We are in a generational fight against terrorist groups and those they inspire, and for us to protect our homeland we will need constant vigilance and clear focus on staying a step ahead of the enemy.”
