Stay away from the city as it is Laylat al-Qadr, Muslims call night of power. They will launch a major attack. Be safe. Be aware of your surroundings.
"You need to wake up the war is starting now in your own streets outside your own Masajids (mosques). "Your elders could be killed, your sisters could be attacked."
If bloody events in 2016 are an indicator, Islamic State will look to double down its campaign of terror on Laylat al-Qadr, also known as Night of Power, which is set to fall on June 21. Michael S. Smith II, a US counter-terror analyst, has observed activity on pro-Islamic State channels today urging a violent response to the ugly van attack on innocent Muslim worshipers.
Counter-terror agencies in Australia and across the West are on high alert for the Night of Power, set to occur in two days' time. Laylat al-Qadr falls on the 27th day of each Ramadan month and holds special importance to many Muslims. The Night of Power is when the first verses of the Quran were revealed to Mohammed in the 7th century, according to some Islamic scholars.
Laylat al-Qadr is seen as a good night for prayers to be made and answered. It is also an opportunity for carefully crafted Islamic State propaganda to shape terrorist attacks as a religious duty. Last year, when the Night of Power fell on July 2, IS terrorists burst into a restaurant in Dhaka, Bangladesh, a venue popular with foreigners. They butchered 20 people with long knives. Nine Italians, seven Japanese, two Indians, an American and Bangladeshi were slaughtered after they were unable to recite verses of the Quran to the attackers. The same day, IS claimed responsibility for a massive truck bomb that killed more than 200 when it exploded in a Baghdad shopping district.

I haven't heard anything here in the West (US) - I thought it was London because one of the articles you linked was categorized under "London Terror" but maybe that was just a "related topic/article".
Thanks for sharing, everyone stay vigilant and safe out there.
