“We remain committed to continue confronting those threats — both here in the United States and overseas,” he said.

“I want to take a moment to offer my heartfelt condolences to the people of Israel, and share the outrage I know we all feel at the sheer brutality and disregard for innocent lives there,” Wray added.

The FBI does not have “specific and credible intelligence indicating a threat to the United States stemming from the Hamas attacks in Israel,” but continues to monitor events as they unfold, the agency said in a statement issued on Monday.

No further efforts by Wray or the agency have been made public as of yet, although the release noted that FBI personnel was involved in efforts to locate affected Americans.
