Indonesian authorities have arrested six suspects who were planning to do harm to Singapore. Among their plans was to use rockets launched from Batam against targets in Marina Bay. Since 9/11, the SAF has paid very close attention to aerial threats and has upgraded our air defence systems.
Despite their arrests, this most recent plot shows how important our efforts are and why we must continue to protect our island. We should assume that there may be more plots, other terror cells on the lookout for ways, and new munitions to penetrate our defences. Terrorism is a global problem and no country is immune.
We have to stay vigilant and keep improving our defence systems. Most importantly, we must remain united to protect what we treasure on this island home.
