Revenge warning: State Department issues 'Worldwide Caution' after Al-Qaeda leader dies
U.S. intelligence reportedly suggests al Qaeda is plotting "terrorist attacks against U.S. interests in multiple regions across the globe"
The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
The State Department has issued a "Worldwide Caution" travel advisory following the U.S drone strike that killed al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in Afghanistan.
"Following al-Zawahiri’s death, supporters of al- Qa’ida, or its affiliated terrorist organizations, may seek to attack U.S. facilities, personnel, or citizens," the State Department advised travelers Tuesday.
Al-Zawahiri, one of the 9/11 masterminds, took over the terrorist network after the U.S. forces in May 2011 killed then-leader Osama bin Laden.
"As terrorist attacks often occur without warning, U.S. citizens are strongly encouraged to maintain a high level of vigilance and practice good situational awareness when traveling abroad," the agency also said.
U.S. intel suggests that al Qaeda is plotting "terrorist attacks against U.S. interests in multiple regions across the globe," the State Department also said.
Experts told Just the News that Al Zawahiri's death shows that al Qaeda is welcome back in Afghanistan following the US. military withdrawal in August 2021.
