The Pentagon is warning employees about being potential targets of quick-strike terror attacks — to the extent of suggesting they change travel routes, remove identifiable logos and avoid large gatherings.

The advisory was issued by the Pentagon Force Protection Agency, which protects the Pentagon and its employees, and says recent threats indicate that terrorists “directed or inspired by Islamic State” consider military and law-enforcement officers legitimate targets, as reported first by The Washington Times.

The advisory was issued Friday and says the threats were uncovered by intelligence and law enforcement sources and that the attackers may use knives, guns or explosives.

“In light of these threats and recent attacks in the United Kingdom, France and Canada, remaining vigilant is paramount,” the two-page advisory warns.

The news of the advisory follows Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announcing Tuesday that his agency has increased security at federal buildings across the country, citing terror threats and the recent attacks.
