One of the world’s most celebrated holidays is fast approaching and this means a lot of things. For regular people, it’s a time to enjoy the fireworks and festivities. On the other hand, extremist groups prepare for a possible attack. That would also mean, of course, that authorities are ready for an impending ISIS terror attack.
This year brought a lot of innocent lives to the higher being. The ongoing war in the Middle East, now involving several countries from across the world, killed so many civilians, mostly children.
Aside from those who were hopelessly victimized in Syria, the ISIS terror attack continuously spread in different parts of the world. Moreover, the group targets crowded places to make sure the damage is massive.
The most recent one that baffled the world was the Berlin Christmas market strike. A Tunisian asylum seeker named Anis Amri hijacked a truck and drove it into a crowd in Berlin, Germany. Twelve people reportedly died, while 48 others were injured in the ISIS terror attack.
ISIS Terror Attack In New Year’s Eve?
Police authorities in the United States, Australia, Europe, Indonesia and Turkey say there are planned attacks in New Year’s Eve.
The Heavy noted there have been 36 ISIS-linked attacks this year. That would mean that the extremists would not think twice and hold another one. In fact, just recently, the United States in Turkey issued a warning to all of its citizens.
“U.S. Mission Turkey reminds U.S. citizens that extremist groups are continuing aggressive efforts to conduct attacks throughout Turkey in areas where U.S. citizens and expatriates reside or frequent. As we approach the end of 2016, U.S. citizens should be mindful of this when deciding to attend public gatherings for Holiday and New Year’s Eve celebrations.”
New Year gatherings’ reminder followed the US’ statement. ISIS once threatened it would attack the yearly new year’s eve celebration in Times Square. That said, police are advising tourists to be keen when traveling in a different country.
