The latest news from the regional news corp
RAAF base near Brisbane, Queensland, has become a major source of conflict and conflict of ideas in the news and opinion media as the air force seeks to maintain its regional presence.
A spokesman for the Air Force said it was aware of reports of the facility and was taking the matter very seriously.
The facility has been under threat in the past with an attack on the aircraft carrier USS George HW Bush in 2011.
In 2016, a bomb was detonated in the air base and caused a fire.
“As part of the ongoing regional security and defence posture, RAAF bases and air defence installations are subject to regular and significant assessments by the relevant national security agencies,” the spokesman said.
He said the latest incident highlighted the risks of using RAAF facilities as bases.
It was unclear how the facility had become involved in a security breach and how long it had been under attack.
Last year, the airbase was bombarded with missiles by an unknown person who went on to detonate an explosive device.
RAAF bases around the country have been hit by a series of attacks and a series in recent months.
There was no immediate comment from the Australian Defence Force.
