The United States has several dangerous international enemies.
Some of them fight with geopolitical maneuvers and some fight with violent attacks.
And one terror threat should have all Americans on high alert.
Donald Trump ordered a military strike that killed Iran’s chief terror organizer Qasem Soleimani outside of an airport in Iraq.
Soleimani was a butcher responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans, Iraqis, and even Iranians who protested the country’s oppressive regime.
Trump said the strike was an act of deterrence against a country that had been becoming increasingly belligerent over the years.
In order to save face, Iran might strike back, and an attack could happen in an American city.
Authorities in New York and L.A. have raised the threat level because there’s evidence that suggests the Iranian-backed terrorist group, Hezbollah, has sleeper cell agents embedded within the country.
Last year, the conviction of Ali Kourani, a Hezbollah operative working in New York, showed that the terror group had been plotting within the United States.
Another Hezbollah operative named Samer el-Debek, who had been working in Michigan, was arrested, which alerted U.S. intelligence officials that sleeper agents were undoubtedly within the country.
National Counterterrorism Center Director Nicholas Rasmussen acknowledged the threat when he said, “It’s our assessment that Hezbollah is determined to give itself a potential homeland option as a critical component of its terrorism playbook.”
In light of the death of Soleimani, there’s no telling if Hezbollah sleeper cells could be planning something disastrous.
Rasmussen added, “We in the intelligence community do in fact see continued activity on behalf of Hezbollah here inside the homeland.”
Though Hezbollah has never directly attacked America’s homeland, Kourani gave plans of a possible attack during his detention.
Kourani told FBI officials that he had been conducting reconnaissance on FBI and Secret Services offices, an Army weapons outpost, and JFK airport in New York City.
Kourani said that he gave Hezbollah details about security protocol, security uniforms, and whether or not officers were armed.
He also reported on exit locations, security checkpoints, cameras, and baggage claim procedures.
This strongly suggests that a major airport could be targeted for attack.
Threats of Islamic terror on American soil are sadly nothing new.
The country has endured the World Trade Center bombing, the horrific 9/11 attacks, the San Bernardino shooting, the Fort Hood Army base shooting, and the Pulse Night Club shooting to name a few.
But a Hezbollah-inspired attack could be launched against a high-profile location in order to show strength while their military is reeling.
Now is an important time to stay on top of the news so you aren’t caught off guard by any critical threat assessments and advisories.
Be prepared to hunker down in case things escalate quickly.
And if you do have to go to the airport for travel, particularly at a major international airport, be very careful and follow all security procedures.
