Six Russian Nationals with Potential ISIS Ties Are Arrested in NYC, Philly and LA

Six Russian nationals with potential ties to ISIS have been arrested in New York, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles in a coordinated sting by law enforcement.

Two ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) officials told American media that they arrested the suspected terrorist affiliates last week after the FBI raised the alarm. The suspects are originally from Tajikistan, and they also have Russian citizenship.

Anonymous ICE officials told the newspaper a wiretap revealed one of the suspects talking about bombs. “Remember the Boston Marathon [bombing]? I’m afraid something like that might happen again or worse,” one official told the news outlet. The suspect in question has been involved with law enforcement before and had a court date next year, according to the source.

It comes as top law enforcement officials warned the threat of a terrorist attack in the US has risen “enormously” over the past few months. Attorney General Merrick Garland made the astonishing admission while testifying before the House Judiciary Committee last week during a hearing dedicated to investigating the department's politicization. “I am worried about the possibility of a terrorist attack in the country after October 7,” Attorney General Garland said. “The threat level for us has gone up enormously.” (DM / VFI News)
