South Korea is taking increased security measures to prevent a potential attack from the Islamic State (IS), after the country’s intelligence agency warned that the terrorist group may be targeting both U.S. military installations and civilians on the Korean peninsula.
The South Korean National Intelligence Service (NIS) Sunday said that IS released a list of potential terrorist targets that include the locations of 77 Air Force installations belonging to the United States and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in 21 countries, and also important individuals associated with them.
Four of the military installations on the list of IS targets are in South Korea. The NIS reported the list included detailed geographical coordinates and satellite images from Google Maps of U.S. Air Force bases in Osan, in Gyeonggi and Gunsan in North Jeolla.
