WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - A new agency within the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will broaden the War on Terror to all forms of targeted violence, regardless of the motivation, acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan announced in a press release.

“I am pleased to announce the establishment of the DHS Office for Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention,” McAleenan stated on Friday. “By expanding the aperture of terrorism prevention to include targeted violence, DHS can help communities better protect themselves against a broader range of current and emerging threats."
