A joint intelligence bulletin from the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security was sent Wednesday to U.S. law enforcement agencies, warning of terror threats posed from Iran, CNN reported.

"In the event [Iran] were to determine to conduct a Homeland attack, potential targets and methods of attack in the Homeland could range from cyber operations, to targeted assassinations of individuals deemed threats to the Iranian regime, to sabotage of public or private infrastructure, including U.S. military bases, oil and gas facilities, and public landmarks," the bulletin, obtained by CNN, read.

"[US government] actions may also provoke violent extremist supporters of [Iran] to commit attacks in retribution, with little to no warning, against U.S.-based Iranian dissidents, Jewish, Israeli, and Saudi individuals and interests, and [US government] personnel."

Iran is preparing for cyberattacks against the U.S. and its allies that might cause "temporary disruptive effects," according to the FBI and DHS joint bulletin.

It also noted individuals working on behalf of Iran or its proxy Hezbollah "have conducted surveillance indicative of contingency planning for lethal attacks in the United States against facilities and individuals."

"Iran has a history of leveraging asymmetric tactics to pursue national interests beyond its conventional capabilities," the bulletin added, per the report.

"Iran has exercised its increasingly sophisticated capabilities to suppress both social and political perspectives deemed dangerous to Iran and to harm regional and international opponents."
