Trending

New Hampshire’s attorney general said Friday that law enforcement agencies across the state were on alert but that there were no credible threats after the former leader of Hamas called for a global “day of rage.” While he said he could not disclose details, attorney Gen. John Formella said officials were monitoring chat platforms and websites and they had no reason to believe New Hampshire was unsafe. Formella said New Hampshire is prepared if an incident occurs anywhere in the state, but law enforcement has no reason to believe the threat is imminent, adding that New Hampshire is one of the safest states in the country. As for whether more personnel are called in, Formella said that depends on each jurisdiction and department. He also had a special message for members: “We are at your service,” Formella said. “We remain vigilant. We understand you may feel you are being targeted, you may feel unsafe, but your law enforcement will be by your side. We are here to protect the entire public. We as the Attorney General cannot say how high the alert will continue. How long, just say it will last as long as necessary. Formella said he also wanted to emphasize the role the public has to play, urging people to report anything suspicious.
