According to NST, the Home Ministry (KDN) views the security threat issued by Israel against leaders of the Palestinian struggle worldwide, including in Malaysia, seriously.
Its minister, Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin said as such, police and other security agencies had beefed up all aspects of security to maintain public order and the safety of Malaysians, including Palestinians living in the country.
He said that, at the same time, KDN would take note of the existence of organisations that supported the aspirations of the Palestinian people’s struggle in the country.
“The ministry urges the public to remain calm as the country’s security situation is under control. The government of Malaysia again emphasises its stands to continue to support the aspirations and struggles of the Palestinian people,” he said in a statement yesterday (16 May).
ICYMI, a video of an Israeli news clip that went viral on social media recently, claimed that Malaysia was among the nations that would receive security threats from Israel.
According to MalaysiaNow, the Israeli television said, “The Israeli leadership has ordered the country’s secret services Shin Bet and Mossad to eliminate top Hamas officials inside and outside of the country”, adding that Malaysia had been named alongside Iran, Turkey and Qatar as countries that “host, finance and train Hamas officials”.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin recently spoke with Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh, who updated him on the latest situation in Palestine, according to NST.
“On behalf of the people of Malaysia, I expressed my condolences and sadness on the loss of lives and injuries inflicted on Palestinians by the Israeli regime’s vicious attacks,” Muhyiddin said in a Facebook post.
