#LahadDatu: Netizens praise Malaysian troops

There has been an outpouring of support for the country's security forces serving in the conflict in Sabah.

Malaysians took to Twitter to rally support for the security personnel currently engaged in the offensive against armed gunmen.

Twitter user @WanieIzwa wrote that Ops Daulat must continue until the invaders from Sulu surrender or were killed.

“Authorities should search for them even down to the worm hole,” she tweeted.

Another Malaysian, @Hazrey, tweeted that the offensive was “not a war against Muslims but a war against murderers who had killed Malaysian security personnel”.

Aizad Ahmad (@aizaddd79) tweeted that Ops Daulat was a “humanitarian mission to free Sabah from intruders”.

In their many letters to The Star, readers paid tribute to the fallen security forces and those who are still fighting the armed intruders.

“All of us should unite and rally behind our security forces,” said KL Quah. “I am so proud of these officers,” said Irine Lopez. (See Page 55)

Meanwhile, soldiers laid flowers at the National Monument in Kuala Lumpur for the eight policemen killed in the fight against Sulu terrorists.

Prebet Mohd Zarith Johar, 22, and Kpl Mohd Yusof Othman, 30, from the Royal Malay Regiment First Battalion in Sg Besi placed bouquets of flowers at the foot of the monument.
