Japan warns of possible terror attacks in SEA including Singapore

Recommended Posts

Japan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has warned its citizens residing in six Southeast Asian countries of a possible attack, sending out an advisory to its embassies on Sep. 13.

The six countries are Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Myanmar, Associated Press (AP) reported.

Urged citizens to follow local news and information

In its advisory, Japan urged its citizens to pay close attention to local news and information and use caution "for the time being", AP reported.

They urged their citizens in the countries to stay away from religious facilities and crowds as they had received information on "increased risks such as suicide bombing".

According to The Vibes, an overseas safety information posted on Japan's embassy in Malaysia also urged their citizens to avoid visiting places that are "easily targeted by terrorism".

According to the alert, these places include "western-related" facilities, such as restaurants, hotels, and tourist facilities.

Countries puzzled

Responding to the advisory, several nations said that they had no information of such threats.

AP reported that a spokesperson for Thailand's Foreign Ministry said Japan had not revealed the origin of the warning and that the Japanese Embassy could not provide any further details other than that the threat was “not specific to Thailand.”

The deputy spokesman for Thai police Kissana Pathanacharoen also said their security agencies have no information about the possible threat mentioned by Japan.

Similarly, Malaysian police chief Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said they have not received any information or detected any security threats, but will nonetheless step up its surveillance, according to BFM News.

The Philippines Department of Foreign Affairs said they were not aware of any information about an elevated threat level.

Meanwhile, Indonesian Foreign Ministry spokesman Teuku Faizasyah denied that any warning was sent to Japanese citizens in the country.

Japan's foreign ministry refused to provide the source of information or reveal whether the advisory was shared with other countries.

Saw someone posted a screenshot of this message in Japanese from the Japanese Embassy in Singapore. There was also a lowkey warning of possible attacks being carried out in Singapore on Straits Times or some other publication few days back. Let's be alert and vigilant.

Maybe Japan is warning of an impending kaiju attack, but it's lost in translation. 😁

@BabyBlade 

Yes, let's trust Japan warnings and information.

Since Japan is very experience in attacking and occupied several countries many years ago.

This is just a messy news telling you it might be true, it did not know where the source is from and not confirmation

Strange story from Japan - I though the only terror in Asia is God-zilla and radiation leak from Fukushima. 😝

Strange... Japan isn't really the first you think of in such things 🤔... yet... countries don't do this lightly.

The threat of a terrorist attack is always very real, be it Singapore or our neighboring countries. Without the intervention of ISA on multiple occasions, we may have already fallen. Whether the source is reliable or not, whether there was actual intel or not, this is a timely reminder to all Singaporeans, be mindful of your surrounding, be vigilant. Don't take the peace we enjoy here for granted, especially after the events of Afghanistan, or even 9/11.

Don't worry, don't worry.  We are fully prepared and have successfully test-deployed  X-ray machines at MRT stations to check your school bags before you board the trains.

Our MRT station's security is as tight as the airport.

Do we need Japan to tell us this? 

We are more aware than they do! 

Our agencies have been doing good jobs so far. Hope they continue to do so!
