The SAF is committed to stopping the spread of terrorism internationally and domestically.
Since 2014, the SAF has contributed assets and deployed personnel and platforms in support of the Defeat-ISIS efforts. The SAF will further deploy troops to Iraq later this year, to support the evolving operational needs of the coalition forces in Iraq.
Domestically, The SAF will continue to enhance training for homeland security operations. Over a year, 18,000 servicemen have been trained for homeland security operations at the Island Defence Training Institute.
The SAF will continue to strengthen coordination with other government agencies to respond to terror threats. One way is through routine joint training sessions with the Singapore Police Force. The SAF's troopers and Singapore Police officers will hone their tactical competencies of operating together through a series of training scenarios.
To combat the growing cyber threat, MINDEF will build up its cyber force. In 2018, MINDEF will take in the pilot batch of NSFs under the Cyber NSF Scheme. We will also invest in cyber defence training and exercise infrastructure.
