US Military Issues Terror Alert at European Bases

Multiple U.S. military bases in Europe are under a heightened state of alert for a terrorist attack against U.S. military personnel or facilities, multiple media outlets reported Sunday.

The bases include the U.S. Army garrison in Stuttgart, Germany, where the U.S. European Command headquarters is located, which raised its alert level to Force Protection Condition “Charlie” on Sunday, two U.S. officials told CNN.

This level is raised “when an incident occurs or intelligence is received indicating some form of terrorist action or targeting against personnel or facilities is likely,” per the U.S. Army.

When reached for comment, U.S. European Command (USEUCOM) said it is “constantly assessing a variety of factors” related to the safety of the U.S military abroad.

“As part of that effort, we often times take additional steps to ensure the safety of our service members,” USEUCOM said, adding it will not get into specific measures for “operational security reasons.”

“As always, USEUCOM advises personnel in the European theater to remain vigilant and stay alert at all times, including reporting suspicious activity, monitoring Department of State travel advisories, and implementing prudent personal risk mitigation measures,” it added.

One of the U.S. officials, who stationed at a European base, told CNN they have not seen this threat level “in at least 10 years,” adding it often means military received an “active-reliable threat.”

Independent military publication Stars and Stripes, which first reported the development, said similar alerts were sent to other bases in Germany, including the Army’s Rheinland-Pfalz and Ramstein Air Base.

The alert for the Rheinland-Pfalz garrison also included Baumholder and outlying installations in Romania and Bulgaria.

Aviano Air Base, located in Italy, saw its condition rise to level Charlie, and other installations in Italy had enhanced security measures, per Stars and Stripes.

ABC News also reported the shift in terror threat, citing two U.S. officials.

It was not immediately clear the nature of the intelligence that reportedly prompted the heightened security.

    OF course, there are terrorist alerts! Our enemies know a weak person is in charge and with elections coming. Trump might win, that can mean a lot of hurt for them. IT IS NOW for our enemies to attack us everywhere and at home. We all should be on alert. All the illegals know their days are numbered as well. So why not team up with terrorists to do us harm.

    I am a Republican PC, I spied on the Democrat Party in Pima County, AZ Website. The information on there said, if you can not prove you are an American Citizen, you can not vote in the Primary Election 2024 but you can request a Federal Ballot to vote for president in the General Election 2024. In Tucson, there is a large stash warehouse and hotels full of illegals that are getting ready to vote for Biden. #Too Big to Rig #MAGA #Trump 2024
