Indonesian Vigilantes Ready to Start Invading Malaysia Today
Although their plans have been widely condemned by officials, the People’s Democratic Defense (Bendera) announced on Thursday that they are ready to invade Malaysia and would start to dispatch volunteer vigilantes on October 9.
Speaking at a press conference in Jakarta, Bendera coordinator Mustar Nona Ventura said that around 1,300 volunteers would depart for Malaysia between October 9 and 22, including 50 medics.
Responding to the statement, Indonesian Military spokesman Air Vice Marshall Sagom Tamboen said they would not deploy special forces to stop the Bendera activists from entering Malaysia. He said that the current immigration officers and soldiers on
duty on the country’s borders were enough to prevent any attack.
