Singapore, March 10
Singapore has detained a full-time national serviceman (NSF) for planning to carry out a knife attack against Jews at a local synagogue, according to a media report on Wednesday.
Singaporean Amirull Ali, 20, had also made plans to travel to Gaza, Palestine, to join the military wing of Hamas in its fight against Israel, the Internal Security Department (ISD) said. Amirull was self-radicalised with a deep hatred for Israel after being convinced that Palestinians were being oppressed, the ISD said. — PTI
