Posted May. 05, 2005 23:33,   


After a May 4 suicide bombing attack in Arbil, Iraq that inflicted about 100 casualties, the Joint Chiefs of Staff stated on May 5 that the Zaytun unit has raised its terror alert level from “Amber” (Tension) to “Red” (Threat).

The terror alert rating system is classified into four levels: Common (Green), Tension (Amber), Threat (Red), and Emergency (Black). The higher the level, the more likely a terror attack will occur.
