Security Forces Protect People from Papuan KST Threats

Papua is an area that requires special assistance from the government and has been in the spotlight in recent years due to conflicts involving Papuan Armed Separatist Groups (KST). Security forces have gone to great lengths to protect the Papuan people from the threat of Papuan KST, while facing complex challenges involving political, social, and economic aspects.

The conflict in Papua has complex historical roots, including issues of human rights, special autonomy, and dissatisfaction over natural resource management. The Papuan KST, a separatist group that uses violent tactics to achieve their political goals, has become a serious threat to the security of the people and security forces in the region. Attacks on infrastructure, kidnappings, and armed clashes are unfortunately not uncommon occurrences in Papua.

Deputy Chairman of Commission III of the House of Representatives Ahmad Sahroni considered that the series of actions carried out by armed criminal groups (KKB) in Papua could not be tolerated. According to him, the security forces must immediately take firm action.

Posthumous Brigadier Rudi Agung Ashari was one of the security forces who was shot dead by members of the Papuan KST while serving in the Bintang Mountains, Papua Mountains. It is feared that the attacks will repeat and cause more casualties, if KST is not immediately acted upon. The TNI-Polri was asked to immediately eradicate the group from Papua.

Condemnation of KST also came from a Papuan community leader, Yonas Alfons Nusy. According to Yonas, security disturbances that are always carried out by the KKB in Papua have injured the lives of Papuans on their own land.

Meanwhile, Deputy Chairman of Commission III of the House of Representatives Ahmad Sahroni said KST would not only inflict more casualties, if it was not immediately eradicated. In addition, if it continues to be left unchecked, KST will undermine the authority of the state.

Security forces continue to strive to protect the Papuan people from the threat of the Papuan Armed Separatist Group (KST). The effort involves intensive security measures, active patrols, and cooperation with local communities. The aim is to create a safe and peaceful environment for all citizens, as well as maintain stability and peace in the Papua region.

National Police Chief General Listyo Sigit Prabowo also spoke about the attacks carried out by the Papuan KST which even caused the death of state security forces. With this incident, the Chief of National Police emphasized that the TNI and the Indonesian National Police (Polri) will take many firm steps, including law enforcement in the field.

Security forces from joint personnel consisting of the TNI, Polri and Nagara Intelligence Agency (BIN) will continue to carry out various protection efforts to the public and continue to carry out various kinds of strict law enforcement measures for the shooting in Papua.

One approach taken by security forces is to increase presence in conflict-prone areas, as well as conduct intensive patrols to prevent possible attacks. In addition, they also continue to promote cooperation with local communities to obtain valuable intelligence, which assists in identifying and arresting members of the Papuan KST.

Furthermore, National Police Chief General Listyo Sigit Prabowo said that security measures to continue to protect the community continue to be pursued.

In addition, not only separatist and terrorist groups must be dealt with firmly, but also other parties who have helped the Papuan KST so far are also obliged to be hunted down.

TNI Commander, Admiral Yudo Margono then reiterated that his troops this time would no longer be humane to the separatist and terrorist groups.

KST is a source of chaos in the land of Papua. The KST is not only involved in attacks on security forces and civilians, but also kidnappings and killings of activists.

The government has formed the Papua Peace Task Force to secure the Cenderawasih Earth, including by shooting 5 KST members in the Bintang Papua Mountains who again acted in the Papua region.

The Cartenz Peace Task Force also managed to seize 3 Senpi as evidence. Measured firm action against the Papuan KST is needed because so far separatist gangs often create riots in the Oksibil area, Bintang Mountains.

It is important to recognize that the efforts of the security forces are not only limited to the military aspect, but also involve social and economic approaches. Development programmes aimed at improving the overall welfare of Papuans have been implemented, in the hope that better opportunities and education will reduce the appeal to extremist groups.

With maximum security and also firm and measurable actions obtained from the security forces, it has proven successful in restoring conducive and safe conditions in the Mountain Papua region from all threats of crime and terror that continue to be intensified by the Papua KST.

Protecting the Papuan people from the threat of Papuan KST requires cooperation and joint efforts from all relevant parties. With a balanced approach between security, economic development, and political dialogue, it is hoped that Papua can achieve sustainable peace and provide hope for future generations. The government, security forces and Papuan people must work together to realize this vision, building a secure, peaceful and prosperous future for Papua and Indonesia as a whole.
