Malaysian Police says that there is no reason for alarm after ISIS flags were spotted in several states.
Bukit Aman Special Branch Counter Terrorism Division head Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ayub Khan said the sightings of the flags were no cause for concern as there was no imminent threat.
“We rely on our intelligence gathering and cooperation with other anti-terrorism agencies to prevent any attack in the country,” he told The Star on Wednesday.
SAC Ayub has reminded the public that there is no threat of an imminent attack on Malaysian soil and that recruitment of Malaysians are being monitored carefully by authorities.
It is pretty disconcerting especially after the recent 1MDB scandal in which “authorities” were also monitoring the situation and found nothing wrong.
“Our priority is the safety and security of all,” he said.
He added that the police was currently investigating who put up the flags.
“We will find those who are responsible for putting up the flags,” he said.
A total of 123 suspected militants have been arrested since February 2013. Among those arrested were 106 Malaysians, 12 Indonesians and two Iraqis.
