A new ISIS propaganda video threatened several notable landmarks in Las Vegas.
According to KTNV, the video was released on Sunday after Manchester, England, was rocked by a deadly terror attack that killed at least 22 people and injured dozens more.
ISIS has been ramping up its propaganda as of late, threatening the West with more cowardly terror attacks.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The newest recruitment and propaganda video featured the Las Vegas strip, famously known for its clubs, casinos and restaurants. The city is constantly filled with tourists, with more than 39 million people visiting each year.
KABC reported that the video’s narrator suggested radical Islamic terrorists conduct lone wolf attacks at public places, and U.S. Intelligence reportedly uncovered this video as part of their efforts to bolster national security in the fight against terror.
Counter-terrorism officials also warned businesses on the strip to stay vigilant and alert authorities of any suspicious activity, according to KLAS.
Retired FBI agent David Shepherd told the news agency that the video featured nothing surprising and reassured citizens that American law enforcement agencies were working hard to prevent a large scale attack.
“Las Vegas has kind of been a terrorism target for a long time,” Shepherd said. “It’s a matter of passing information, understanding exactly what’s going on in the city, what’s good, what’s bad, and that’s a daily occurrence.”
“Groups are always looking at other ways to try to get something done, so you always have to stay one step ahead of them,” he added.
If you live in Las Vegas, be on guard and always be ready for a potential attack. ISIS is cowardly and will strike when you least expect it.
