U.S. Military Warned of Possible IS Attacks at Home

(Reuters) -

U.S. officials have warned military personnel that Islamic State forces may be planning attacks against them in the United States, ABC News reported on Monday.

ABC said the government indicated late Sunday it had obtained intelligence that Islamic State terrorists were targeting the United States within its borders.

“The FBI recently received reporting indicating individuals overseas are spotting and assessing like-minded individuals who are willing and capable of conducting attacks against current and former U.S.-based members of the United States military,” the bulletin said, according to a Reuters source.

An FBI spokesman confirmed the accuracy of the ABC report, but declined to provide a copy of the memo.
