The U.S. Navy received a threat Thursday purporting to be from ISIS at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado–the primary training facility for U.S. Navy SEALs, according to a military official cited by local Fox affiliate KSWB 5. The threat was found to be “non-credible,” but was fully investigated as the Navy conducted terror drills nearby.
The caller allegedly threatened that “ISIS is on the ground.” However, investigators believe that it was a prank.
The base is one of several in the San Diego/Coronado area. It was never put on alert while the threat was being investigated, according to Fox 5. Local navy bases have been on alert in previous instances of terror threats.
