By : Rebecca Marian )*
Great appreciation should be given to the hard work that has been carried out by all security forces, in which they have always tirelessly protected and tried to prioritize the security of the people on Cenderawasih Earth, especially from the threat of terror acts carried out by KST Papua.
The head of the Kamoro Tribe in Mimika Regency, Bernadus Yawa, admitted that he was very grateful for all the hard work that has been continuously attempted by the security forces from the joint personnel consisting of the Indonesian National Army (TNI), Indonesian National Police (Polri) and the National Police Agency. The State Intelligence Service (BIN), which has so far tirelessly continued to protect all elements of society in Cenderawasih Earth, especially the Kamoro tribe itself from the depraved acts and series of barbaric acts that continue to be carried out by groups of Papuan separatist and terrorist groups (KST) who often times attacking the community and even the indigenous Papuans (OAP) themselves.
This gratitude and very high appreciation deserves to be given by all ranks of the security forces, the joint personnel of the TNI, Polri and BIN, because so far they have been on the side of the residents, mainly to continue to protect and create so that the Cenderawasih Earth region continues to be in a conducive condition. and also safe.
It cannot be denied that all this time the hard work of the security forces has continued to be able to restore peace to the Land of Papua, especially from the threat of KST Papua. even various kinds of missions that cost lives continue to be carried out with lives at stake.
Apart from that, strong rejection from all elements of society to condemnation of the entire series of terror acts that continue to be carried out by gangs of separatist and terrorist groups on Cenderawasih Earth also continues to flow, including full support from all parties to the Government of the Republic of Indonesia (RI) and the security forces to can take firm action against them in accordance with the rules and laws in force in the country.
Appreciation did not only come from the people of Papua and traditional leaders in the easternmost province of the archipelago, but also from the Regional Military Commander (Pangdam) XVII / Cenderawasih Major General (Mayjen) TNI Muhammad Saleh Mustafa. He expressed his appreciation to all members of the security forces from joint personnel consisting of the TNI, Polri to BIN who also some time ago managed to secure weapons and ammunition from the hands of KST Papua.
Of course, the success of the security forces in securing weapons and ammunition from gangs of separatist and terrorist groups is also one clear proof of how all this time the security forces really have a very strong commitment and also work hard in creating a safe and peaceful situation on Earth. Bird of Paradise.
Moreover, securing illegal weapons and ammunition owned by KST Papua is also one of the strategies or steps that are very appropriate to take because on the one hand we continue to prioritize humanism in taking action against these separatist and terrorist groups, but on the other hand we can also take precautions. so that they no longer carry out acts of terror which endanger and threaten the lives of the indigenous Papuan people (OAP) themselves.
In fact, it was reported that not only firearms (guns) and ammunition were secured by the security forces, but his party also managed to secure a series of communication equipment such as handy talkies (HT), SSB radios, cellphones and other communication devices so that communication lines or interaction relations from KST Papua can be hampered so that they do not continue to carry out barbaric acts that are no longer humane.
Meanwhile, other steps by the security forces to continue to protect and protect the people of Cenderawasih Earth were also carried out with rescue missions and efforts to search for Pilot Susi Air who had been held hostage for more than 3 (three) months by the separatist and terrorist groups.
Again, as is the strong commitment of all the joint security personnel of the TNI, Polri and BIN, that they will continue to take firm action and strive for security until peace on Cenderawasih Earth but using a humane approach, they also continue to prioritize efforts to negotiate with KST Papua. .
The negotiation process that has been carried out so far has not yet reached a common ground, because the gang of separatist and terrorist groups in Bumi Cenderawasih cannot be persuaded to compromise at all. However, the security forces continued to do so by involving the assistance of religious leaders and local traditional leaders.
KST Papua continues to carry out threats and series of terror attacks with increasing potential to cause many fatalities and injuries from the people of Cenderawasih Earth themselves. Even so, the security forces are not at all afraid and are tireless in always protecting the entire community so that the hard work that they have been doing so far deserves a huge appreciation.
