“U.S. citizens should exercise caution at holiday festivals, events, and outdoor markets,” the State Department said in a statement.
The advisory expires Feb. 20.
“U.S. citizens should exercise vigilance when attending large holiday events, visiting tourist sites, using public transportation, and frequenting places of worship, restaurants, hotels, etc.,” the statement said.
“U.S. citizens should also be alert to the possibility that extremist sympathizers or self-radicalized extremists may conduct attacks during this period with little or no warning,” the State Department said.
“Terrorists may employ a wide variety of tactics, using both conventional and non-conventional weapons and targeting both official and private interests,” it added.
