On Tuesday, January 22, the ministry of Home Affairs released the second edition of its Singapore Terrorism Threat Assessment Report. According to the report, the terrorism threat in Singapore remains high as a rise in the number of radicalised individuals have been reported, and global terror groups remain active. Security agencies advise the population ''to maintain high vigilance even though there has been no credible or specific intelligence of an attack being planned against Singapore''.
The Singapore Terrorism Threat Assessment Report is aimed at alerting Singaporeans to the security environment here and regionally. In the past two years, eight self-radicalised individuals were arrested in Singapore under the Internal Security Act, bringing the total number to 22 people arrested since 2015.
Individuals in Singapore are advised to remain vigilant particularly when visiting sites deemed likely to be targeted in an attack (airports, public or government buildings, embassies or consulates, international organizations, schools and universities, religious sites, markets, hotels and restaurants frequented by foreigners/Westerners etc.).
