By KOW KWAN YEE
SUNGAI PETANI: Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (pix) has condemned netizens and cybertroopers who spread inaccurate information on the Lahad Datu intrusion deliberately to provoke emotion of the public.
Dr Ahmad Zahid had described those who disseminated twisted facts on the Internet as "heartless" people.
"Most of them have no knowledge about military strategies but simply criticise the force.
"As Malaysians, they should show their support and pray for the safety of the military force members but not underestimate their ability," he said.
He was speaking to the reporters after officiating a promotion ceremony for 183 personnel at Sungai Layar army camp here Saturday.
