The community must unite in maintaining security and order from KST attacks. Don’t let anyone be influenced by the propaganda and hoaxes deliberately created by KST members. According to him, there are still people who believe hoaxes too easily, especially on social media, so they must be warned.

The security forces thanked the public who dared to report KST’s whereabouts. Reports from the public will be followed up by the joint team with the results of confiscating munitions, weapons, communications equipment and documents. Where the perpetrators of this terror are obstacles to development in Papua who must become a common enemy for anyone who wants  Papua  to be more advanced.
