Terror analyst Jasmine Opperman says South Africa is, without a doubt, vulnerable to terror attacks.
We are vulnerable. It's not a question of if we are, but rather when we will be confronted with an attack. We need to be ready.— Jasmine Opperman, TRAC Director
According to Opperman, there is no coincidence involved in the recent terror-related warnings and incidents in the country.
She has cautioned that state institutions are not adequately prepared to counter and prevent local threats of terror.
Opperman says that government officials spend too much time investigating cases and have gathered very little intelligence.
In the last two months, there have been recorded cases of Capetonians making direct contact with terror groups in Syria, she adds.
