T20 WC 2024: Terrorist organization ISIS has threatened to attack the match between India and Pakistan. An alert has been issued in New York regarding this.

T20 WC 2024: The T20 World Cup starting from June 1 has been announced. All the teams are reaching America. Warm up matches have started. Team India is also busy practicing. Everyone is waiting for June 9, because on this day a big match is to be played between India and Pakistan at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. However, there is a terrorist shadow on this match. An organization associated with ISIS has threatened a lone wolf attack, due to which a high alert has been issued.

The threat of a ‘lone wolf’ attack given by an organization linked to ISIS has been confirmed by New York’s Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder. According to Ryder, a terrorist organization linked to ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) has made a threatening video viral, in which it has warned of an attack during the match between India and Pakistan. In that video, independent attackers have been urged to take action. Lone wolf attacks include drone attacks.

Who is Lone Wolf?

The ‘lone wolf’ attacks that have been mentioned are members of terrorist organisations who work independently at the behest of the organisation, which is why it is difficult to track them. Commissioner Rider said that when we have a match of such a big scale and such a large crowd, then such threats are credible. We have increased security arrangements. More policemen will be deployed on the day of the match.

Threat of drone attacks

Patrick Ryder said, ‘We will pay attention to every minute detail when it comes to the safety and security of the residents here. This threat includes potential drone attacks, for which officials have requested the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to declare Eisenhower Park a no-fly zone for drones.

What exactly is a ‘lone wolf’ attack?

The lone wolf attack that is being feared on the India-Pakistan match is a kind of suicide attack. In this, the attackers either kill themselves or a single person carries out the entire incident. The purpose of this attack is to harm as many people as possible.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul gave this assurance

New York Governor Kathy Hochul is strict about the threat of terrorist attack. She has assured strict security arrangements. She has instructed the New York State Police to remain alert and implement the tightest security arrangements. The city is being monitored and screened. She said that my administration has been working with federal law enforcement agencies and Nassau County for months to ensure that New Yorkers and visitors coming here remain safe.
