IPOH: The North Brigade in Perak have been reminded not to take lightly terrorist threats especially that from the Islamic State (IS).

Internal Security and Public Order director, Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Muhammad Fuad Abu Zarim said IS threats should be taken seriously after the suicide bombings at Jakarta in Indonesia.

"They are warning us after the arrests of few individuals involved with IS.

"They are particularly targeting security officials like us... We have to be very careful," he said to police officials in his speech during his visit to the North Brigade General Operations Force in Ulu Kinta.

Fuad however said that the police have done in a good job in thwarting suicide bombing attempts after arresting some individuals.

In a press conference later, he said the Islamic State situation in Malaysia was under control.

"We are monitoring their movements everyday, whether it is domestic or foreign. As we all know, they rope people in through social media. So we are constantly monitoring all these."

Muhd Fuad also urged the public to give them information if they came across any IS websites or social media pages.

"It is for our own good. We do not want these people to come and harm our country," he said.
