Media Statement

July 29, 2017

Major Joint Counter Terrorism Team operations by the Australian Federal Police, ASIO and NSW Police are occurring in Sydney.

These operations are designed to disrupt and prevent plans to undertake terrorist attacks in Australia.

I have been kept closely briefed on the progress of the operations by the heads of our relevant security agencies.

However, as the operations are ongoing, it is inappropriate to provide further detail at this stage.

My number one priority, and that of my Government, is the safety and security of all Australians.

The public should be reassured that our security and intelligence agencies are working tirelessly to keep us safe.

In the meantime remain alert, follow the advice given by police and if you do see or hear something suspicious call the National Security Hotline on 1800 123 400.
