There has been a death threat against Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher, according to reports by the United States media.


The threat, written in Arabic, came into the government.
 
“We are being very careful [about] … getting information out about the location of Gallagher,” said a TV reporter speaking on Good Morning San Diego.
 
Gallagher, who has been accused of war crimes, will go to trial in less than three weeks. 
 
Gallagher is accused of killing a teenage Islamic State fighter under his care and then holding his reenlistment ceremony with the corpse. Further, Navy prosecutors also accuse Gallagher of shooting two civilians in Iraq and opening fire on crowds. 
 
Gallagher has pleaded not guilty to all the charges, and earlier this week new evidence surfaced in Gallagher’s favor. Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) screened combat footage collected from a helmet camera to a group of lawmakers Wednesday, saying the footage exonerates Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher of one of the charges against him.
