(U) Threat Situation as of 14 December, 2018

(U) Transnational terrorist groups, such as ISIS, al-Qa'ida, their associates, and those inspired by such groups' propaganda, continue plotting against U.S. interests worldwide. In Europe, radicalized Islamist lone-actors and ad-hoc cells still pose the greatest terrorist threat.

(U) Some Europe-based foreign fighters, determined to harm Americans, have returned home from Syria and Iraq, while other individuals are radicalizing and are increasingly being inspired by extremist propaganda. European authorities have warned of possible attack plotting targeting major events, places of worship, and the transportation sector, which has prompted heightened security at notable public venues. Military targets have included installations and Soldiers off-post. Extremists may use conventional or non-conventional weapons to target U.S. government and private interests, and increasingly use less sophisticated methods of attack to more effectively target crowds, including the use of edged weapons, pistols, and vehicles as weapons.

(U) While allied counterterrorism forces routinely thwart plots in Europe, detecting and disrupting them remain a challenge -especially when terrorists use simple weapons in unsophisticated attacks. This has been demonstrated in Europe numerous times this year, with attackers armed with firearms, edged weapons, or vehicles used as weapons.
