Alert level of several US military bases in Europe is raised to second-highest level after 'intelligence terrorist action or targeting of personnel or facilities is likely' --Four US military bases across Europe had their alert level raised --They were raised to 'Charlie', the second-highest level --This means a terror attack or an attack against personnel is 'likely' | 30 June 2024 | The US military has raised the alert level of several of its bases across Europe to the second-highest level in a move that hasn't been seen "in at least ten years." The U.S. Army Garrison in Stuttgart, Germany, America's military headquarters in Europe, bases in Rheinland-Pfalz and Ramstein, and Aviano Air Base in Italy were all put on alert level "Charlie" over the weekend, several publications reported. The "Charlie" threat level only "applies when an incident occurs or intelligence is received indicating some form of terrorist action or targeting against personnel or facilities is likely," according to the U.S. Army. A U.S. official told CNN that they haven't seen a threat level this high "in at least 10 years," adding that this usually means the military is aware of an "active-reliable threat."
