ISIS has allegedly identified the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as an "excellent target" and is encouraging a "lone wolf" attack at the event, reports theNew York Post.

In the recent edition of the publication 'Rumiyah,' the terrorist group writes, "One need not be a military expert or a martial arts master, or even own a gun or rifle, in order to carry out a massacre or to kill and injure several disbelievers and terrorize an entire nation."

It reportedly suggests, "The method of such an attack is that a vehicle is plunged at a high speed into a large congregation of (non-believers)..."

At this time, the threat level of such an attack occurring is considered low, notes the New York Post.
