Australian authorities arrested two men in a counter-terrorism operation in Sydney on Wednesday.

Deputy Police Commissioner of New South Wales Catherine Burn made the announcement.

"Today we have conducted a further two arrests, which brings this to a total of 13 people we will have put before the court under Operation Appleby."

The two men, a 24-year-old and a 20-year-old, will be charged with terrorism-related offenses.

Burn added there are no existing security threats known to local authorities.

"There is no specific threat, there is no current threat, there is no pending threat, and at this time of the year when we are moving into Christmas and New Year, please make sure that you go about your business. Be vigilant, but get out and about and make sure that you do what you would be doing. We don't have any information that there is any specific threat."

Burn said Wednesday's arrests were related to events that occurred in Australia last year.
