ISIS calls for ‘lone wolf’ attacks on hurricane relief centers

Written by  Chris Perez

ISIS has been calling for “lone wolf” attacks on hurricane relief centers in Houston and Miami, according to a report.

Confidential government intelligence documents obtained by CNBC outline the proposed threats and describe how law enforcement officials were advised to be on the lookout for terror-related activity after spotting threatening messages on Twitter.

ISIS has been calling for “lone wolf” attacks on hurricane relief centers in Houston and Miami, according to a report.

Confidential government intelligence documents obtained by CNBC outline the proposed threats and describe how law enforcement officials were advised to be on the lookout for terror-related activity after spotting threatening messages on Twitter.

The internal info, dated Sept. 14, is from the Department of Homeland Security’s Southeast Florida Fusion Center. It also mentions calls for attacks in other cities, as well — including the Big Apple.

“On Sept. 11, there was a twitter posting that appears to be authored by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) that threatens Washington, New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Miami and Las Vegas,” the document says, according to CNBC.

The document goes on to mention a Newsweek article from earlier this month citing a different ISIS posting calling for lone-wolf attacks on Houston relief centers in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

“To all the (lone mujahids) in the U.S. (warrior), pop down to Houston and drop in at any of the relief centers housing displaced people from the Houston floods, make sure to bring lots of supplies/gadgets/toys to see if you can help put any (unbeliever) out of their misery,” the post said.

Terror experts said the orders from ISIS were likely “more aspirational then operational, with hopes that their followers would then act on calls for attacks.”

“Incidents involving lone wolf attackers have demonstrated the potential danger, lethality and effectiveness of a rehearsed small arms or knife attack that can be carried out by a single individual with little or no training,” one analyst said in the documents. “It also underscores the potentially higher consequences of an assault attack involving multiple operatives.”

Don't let Antifa scare any of you. They wouldn't face my friend Benzle (he was alone) and they wouldn't face me (I was alone also). Benzle is in Florida, I'm in Ohio. The FBI has known about them for many years, but done nothing. As I see it a terrorist group so shoot on sight. A gunsmith friend told us need more weapons, let me know.

I am from West Virginia and we cannot get them to come down here and try anything with our white rallys!! We have the Castle doctrine and are allowed to shoot them if attacked!!!

When they overtly pull this crap, kill them. There's no time for "due process" during a terrorist attack. This is the perfect reason behind the people's right to "Keep And Bear Arms". It is in order to keep the peace. The people ARE the "Militia".

Isis, Liberals, Democrats, Black lives matter, there're all the same origination with the same belief's. All are inciting treason to overthrow America. Pure trash people that follow the wolves to their demise. I welcome the day when our good government declares all of them as terrorist groups and open season for their arrest.

It is time we need to start being ready for these attacks. Most are done by the home grown terrorists, some are done by ISIS and other muslim backed groups . but get enough normal folks who have had it together and they will think they have met their doom . and maybe they will .We can't depend on the government to take care of us . Obama has let this build and fester until it can't be stopped by the government . And our military can only be stretched so far .
