US intelligence has detected no “specific” threat against the United States in the wake of a massive terror attack by Hamas on Israel six days ago, a White House spokesman says.

“That said, we continue to remain vigilant to any and all possible threats,” especially to the Jewish and Muslim communities across the United States, National Security Council spokesman John Kirby says.
