Rep. Peter King: ISIS May Be Plotting July 4th Bomb Attacks in NYC, Nationwide. (NM).
Rep. Peter King, chairman of the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, tells Newsmax TV that Islamic State [ISIS] terrorists may be plotting to explode a bomb in the New York metropolitan area on the Fourth of July.
Making the threat even more real is the fact that a supply of explosives were discovered in the lair of one ISIS operative in the region earlier this month, according to King.“I’ve been aware of this now for about the last two or three weeks … the real possibility of something being attempted on the Fourth of July,” King, a New York Republican, said Tuesday on “The Steve Malzberg Show.”
“There’s a number of things — intelligence that’s been picked up … and the last week to 10 days, there’s been five ISIS operatives arrested in New York City. That’s not coincidental.
“It’s one thing you say someone’s a lone wolf. You don’t find five lone wolves operating together at the same time.” Read the full story here.
