Federal officials have warned New York City authorities about possible attacks by the al Qaeda/ISIS militant groups around Election Day, putting local law enforcement on alert the weekend before Tuesday’s vote, officials said on Friday.
Both the New York Police Department-NYPD and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey were given the information, the local agencies said.
“We are continuing with the high level of patrols at all of our facilities that we have had in place for some time now,” said spokesman Steve Coleman of the Port Authority, which operates airports, tunnels and bridges around the New York City area.
He declined to offer specifics of the warning.
The NYPD said the threat report lacked specifics and was still being assessed.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
