Amid political unrest in the United States and heightened security in Washington DC, a jihadist suggested individuals and groups take advantage and mount attacks.


After the U.S. named Abu Fadak al-Muhammadawi, the leader of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT), the Hezbollah Brigades regarded that listing as a badge of honor and reiterated that America and its "agents" must be confronted.


Jama'at Nusrat al-Islam wal Muslimeen (JNIM), the Sahel-based branch of al-Qaeda (AQ), claimed a suicide bombing on French and Malian troops and a rocket strike on a military position held by French and MINUSMA forces, declaring the operations to be retaliation for a French drone strike on an alleged wedding party in Mali.
