The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security have issued warnings to law enforcement agencies about potential attacks on holiday events, particularly churches, by ISIS sympathizers, reports The Hill.
Officials also specified that no known credible threats have been made, but rather widespread, public threats.
Users of pro-ISIS social media accounts published a directory of churches across all 50 states, saying they were hoping for "bloody celebrations in the Christian New Year."
Other postings on the same accounts asked followers to attack “churches, well-known hotels, crowded coffee shops, streets, markets and public places.”
The group regularly posts lists of targets, whether they are places or people. Followers have increasingly begun attacking "soft targets," or public places with large groups of people.
ISIS puts out holiday attack church list. This should finally silence all those crazy claims about a religious war.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) December 22, 2016
The threats inspired more than a few "hot takes" on social media.
Other people on Twitter are calling for those in the west to be vigilant during the holidays.
