According to New York City’s police commissioner, the potential of a retaliatory terror attack being perpetrated against the people of New York City by Tehran, Hezbollah, if there is a war between Iran and Israel, is a real concern, thanks in large part to the city’s high percentage of Jewish residents.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said that New York City's police force has been placed on high alert as the ongoing concerns increase.

"We’ve been concerned about Iran for a while, and I think the history of those events throughout the world since January give us cause for concern," Commissioner Kelly told the New York Post. "Obviously if there's any action involving Israel and Iran we have to be very cognizant of the potential of retaliation here in New York City.”

“Within the last year, we've seen a worldwide increase in incidents involving the stockpiling of explosives, the surveillance of targets, and a number of very significant plots and attacks," said Lt. Kevin Yorke of the NYPD's Intelligence Division who NTC on high Alertbelieves that the increase in activity "is in direct relation to Iran’s nuclear-weapons program and the tension surrounding it.”
