The FBI Chief's Warning
On Saturday, October 14, 2023, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned that the US is facing a growing number of terror threats, especially from lone wolves who may be inspired by the ongoing Israeli-Hamas conflict. This warning came a day after the "Day of Jihad" declared by former Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal.
Wray recently spoke at the International Association of Police annual conference. According to FBI transcripts, Wray stated, "In this heightened environment, there's no question we're seeing an increase in reported threats, and we've got to be on the lookout, especially for lone actors who may take inspiration from recent events to commit violence of their own."
Wray did not provide information on any specific domestic threats, but he urged law enforcement officials to stay vigilant.
