No Immediate Threat To PH Following Japan Terror Attack Warning

NO IMMEDIATE THREAT TO PH – According to the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the security level in the country is “moderate”.

Recently, Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned of a possible terror threat in the country. However, AFP spokesperson Col. Ramon Zagala said:

For now, the security level is moderate, that means there is no perceived attack at the moment

Furthermore, the AFP said the bombers involved in the Sulu and Basilan incidents were already neutralized. Additionally, Zagala stated that the AFP “had gotten most of them”.

But, he emphasized that the military is still monitoring the situation in critical areas. In the meantime, he believes that the country is now “secure and stable”.

Meanwhile, in terms of Japan’s warning, the AFP said that it has not received a formal notice from the Japanese government. But, he stressed that the AFP takes all reports seriously, especially when it comes to terrorism.

For now, the AFP said that they would wait for an update regarding the matter as the official processing of information would take long to verify. Along with this, Zagala said the AFP would continue to monitor local terror groups such as the Abu Sayyaf and the Maute group.

“Although their forces are severely diminished, it does not mean we should let our guard down, and that we do constantly look into the situation specially in our areas of concern where the local terrorist groups are moving”, he added.
