Australia to hasten military deployment in response to 'terrorist incidents'

17 July 2017

Australian prime minister said the country will enchance military deployment in response to 'terrorist incidents'.     AUSTRALIAN PM, MALCOLM TURNBULL              "The measures I am announcing today will ensure that the ADF (Australian Defence Force) is more readily available to respond to terrorism incidents, providing state and territory police with the extra support to call on when they need it. We have to stay ahead of the threat of terrorism. We have to constantly review our law enforcement capabilities. We have to constantly act to improve our ability to keep Australians safe." "In the current threat environment, it's most likely that a terrorist attack will use simple methodologies, a knife, a gun, a vehicle and the attack itself could be over in minutes."
