Papuan Separatist and Terrorist Groups (KST) have often carried out brutal actions, thus hampering various developments. The community also fully supports the security forces to take firm action against gangs so that peace can be realized in Papua.
The youth in Papua who are members of the Barisan Merah Putih (BMP) continue to provide their full support to all levels of security forces from the joint personnel of the Indonesian National Army (TNI) and also the Indonesian National Police (Polri) to be able to enforce the law very firmly. to the Separatist and Terrorist Group (KST) in Bumi Cenderawasih.
The reason is, the young generation in the easternmost province in the country is very angry with the many series of acts of violence and very brutal cruelty shown by the separatist gang, which is considered because of the many atrocities they have committed, which has seriously damaged the positive image. from the Papuan people themselves as a whole.
Regarding the full support provided by young people from Papua, the Chairman of BMP Papua, Max Ohee, said that in fact all the people in Bumi Cenderawasih really love peace, but precisely because of the existence of KST, some people consider Papuans to be an evil group of people.
He then strongly condemned the atrocities committed by KST Papua so far against many of its victims, of which it is not uncommon for the victims to come from civilians who are native Papuans (OAP) themselves, or also from security forces to non-citizens. Papua. All this barbarism clearly does not reflect a sense of humanity.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Mandala Trikora Youth for Papua Province, Ali Kabiay, also very firmly stated that the security forces from joint personnel should not need to show mercy to parties who have clearly committed many serious human rights violations such as KST so that they must be dealt with as soon as possible.
His party also continues to invite groups that are at odds with the nation’s ideology to return to the fold of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI). This is because the actions that have been continuously carried out by terrorist groups have been very detrimental to all parties, including the Papuan people themselves. Therefore, all parties should be able to work together to maintain the common home as a harmonious nation.
Maintaining harmony means being able to continue to strive to create peace, because peace itself is the key to successful development on Cenderawasih Earth. So in this way, the welfare of the entire indigenous Papuan community (OAP) will also increase.
It is an open secret that up to now, the development of various facilities that the Government of the Republic of Indonesia (RI) continues to intensify has become increasingly stalled and hampered due to the actions of KST Papua. In fact, recently they attacked workers at the Community Health Center (Puskesmas) in Head Water, Puncak Regency.
The attack even caused casualties and one worker was killed, while two other people were in critical condition. Regarding this matter, the Head of Operations (Kaops) of the Cartenz Peace Task Force (Satgas), Police Commissioner (Kombes Pol) Faizal Ramadhani said that apart from the deaths, there were also Community Health Center construction workers who were hit by arrows.
Even so, the quick steps and movements taken by the security forces from the joint forces themselves deserve very high appreciation because the Cartenz Peace Task Force Team was able to successfully evacuate as many as 23 workers to Timika.
On the other hand, not only were attacks carried out on Puskesmas workers, but KST’s brutality also targeted other civilians in Yahukimo Regency, Mountainous Papua and also Puncak Regency, Central Papua. Based on information from the Papua Regional Police Chief (Kapolda), Inspector General of Police (Irjen Pol) Mathius D Fakhiri, the shooting caused seven gold panners to die.
Again, the alertness and quick movement carried out by the security forces from the joint personnel deserves huge appreciation because they were able to evacuate up to 52 gold panners.
It is not surprising why Member of the Indonesian House of Representatives from the PPP faction, Syaifullah Tamliha, expressed high appreciation for the firm actions taken by the security forces in cracking down on the KST that occurred in the Papuan community because they continue to try to hinder development in the Land of Cenderawasih and harm indigenous Papuans.
