The hacker group Anonymous said Saturday that the Islamic State plans to attack sites in the U.S., Paris, Indonesia, Italy and Lebanon on Sunday.

In the U.S., the terrorist group is planning an attack at the WWE Survivor Series pro-wrestling event at the Philips Arena in Atlanta at 7:30 p.m. EST on Sunday, The International Business Times reports.

The FBI said Saturday that it was aware of the alleged threat to the Atlanta event, but lacked "specific or credible information of an attack," FBI Special Agent in Charge Britt Johnson said.

"The FBI is aware of reports of an alleged threat that includes an Atlanta, Georgia, venue and event," Johnson told the IBT. "We have ... made the proper notifications as we continue to work closely with our law-enforcement and private-sector partners to keep our community safe."

WWE officials said that the event would continue as scheduled.
"WWE Survivor Series is currently scheduled as planned while we investigate the matter with federal, state and local authorities," the organization told The Hill.



OpParisIntel, the Anonymous effort against ISIS that began after the Paris attacks, said on Saturday that it had discovered information on new terror plots "on Paris and the world" scheduled for Nov. 22, the IBT reports.

"All proof was submitted to official authorities all around the globe days ago," the group said. "They have it and it is their responsibility to do something with it.

"But because they have not done anything with it yet and it’s almost the 22nd, we have [to take] matters into our own hands.

"We only take the responsibility of warning civilians (in case the authorities do not act well enough)," Anonymous said.

The group cautioned against attending events with large crowds, adding that "the risk of any churches outside Paris/France being targeted is low.

"The goal is to make sure the whole world, or at least the people going to these events, know that there have been threats and that there is possibility of an attack to happen," Anonymous said.
 
The hacker group listed several events in Paris that it said "have been confirmed are at risk" and several others worldwide that are not yet "100% confirmed," the Hill reports.

According to the IBT report, Anonymous shared its findings with intelligence agencies in the United States and Britain, but would not release its proof publicly.
 
"If we share the proof [publicly], everyone will start calling it fake because screenshots can be edited and accounts can be deleted," Anonymous said. "We have purposely not shared account links publicly because they would be shut down immediately and then no one would believe the proof."
