The US is warning its citizens in Turkey of an increased risk of extremist attacks, as it seems to fear possible terrorist attacks on the occasion of the New Year’s celebrations.

The U.S. Embassy in Ankara on Thursday issued a statement stating the following:

During the holiday season, there is the potential for increased crime and acts of violent extremism in Turkey.  

 Planned attacks and criminal activity often occur in crowded public locations such as holiday markets, shopping malls, airports, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, transportation hubs, schools, and other areas frequented by tourists.  Public events, such as demonstrations, holiday events, and celebratory gatherings are also at a higher risk for violence.

The United States‘ embassy suggests people exercise vigilance at holiday festivals and events, places of worship, and locations with large crowds, review their personal security plans, be aware of their surroundings and monitor local media for updates.
