Alarming Information From South Korean’s Intelligence Agency
Last Sunday, South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS) revealed ISIS’ plan on attacking 77 US and NATO Air Force facilities located in different parts of the world. They are encouraging their sympathizers to carry out these tasks after the terror group published information (addresses and other personal details) of various individuals in 21 countries (one of which is a South Korean welfare organization employee currently under protection) in addition to the Google satellite images of the US Air Force Units’ location. One of their targets included Osan Air Base which is located 64 km south of Seoul.
The United Cyber Caliphate, ISIS’ hacking organization, released all the vital information via the Telegram messaging service. US Forces Korea released the following statement last Monday:
“Through constant vigilance and regular exercises with our South Korean counterparts, we remain prepared to respond at any time to any emerging threats. USFK remains committed to ensuring the highest degree of security on the Korean Peninsula.”
The statement further added that: “Terror against South Korean citizens and foreigners in this country is becoming a reality.”
