Security Forces Prepare Effective Strategy to Face KST Attacks During 2024 Election
The Papuan Separatist and Terrorist (KST) group continues to carry out their barbaric actions even ahead of the 2024 General Election (Pemilu). To be able to face all threats from the Bumi Cenderawasih separatist gang, the security forces have prepared a series of effective strategies to deal with them and suppress their actions, especially on voting day.
Ahead of the implementation of the democratic party and political contestation, namely the 2024 election voting, the Indonesian National Army (TNI AD) has prepared a number of anticipatory security measures, especially in the Papua region which is very prone to exposure from KST.
One of the strategies carried out by security forces to anticipate possible attacks by terrorist groups is to use and utilize the latest technology. Regarding this matter, the Chief of Staff (Kasad) of the Indonesian Army, General Maruli Simanjuntak, stated that the problems that have been occurring in Bumi Cenderawasih should not continue to escalate.
Therefore, the security forces are really trying to create a conducive security and stability situation in the Land of Papua so that it remains under control. As a result of several programs and strategies intensified by the security forces, the situation on Earth of Cenderawasih is now safely under control.
This is clear evidence that the programs launched by the security forces are very influential in the Land of Papua, one of which is the use of anticipatory strategies. The various plans that have been carried out have so far continued to run smoothly.
The approach used by the security forces in relation to dealing with KST Papua is not just using defense equipment, but instead places more emphasis on an approach using technology which aims to anticipate so that security for various government programs or agendas and other national agendas can run well in the province. the easternmost part of Indonesia.
So the strategy put forward by the security forces to anticipate the movement of KST Papua is primarily to launch territorial activities which will clearly be of great help to the local community.
Not half-hearted, in fact, to ensure that the General Election runs smoothly, peacefully and in an orderly manner, the TNI Commander, General Agus Subiyanto, went directly to ensure how prepared his personnel were in securing the peak of the celebration at the democratic party on February 14 2024.
The steps taken are to start preparing soldiers and equipment when needed for several areas that are prone to conflict such as in Papua, including equipment that will be equipped in areas that are prone to natural disasters.
Not only are the personnel being prepared, but the security forces have also prepared a number of other defense equipment which really supports the smooth implementation of the 2024 election voting, such as tactical vehicles, then there are ambulances and several other defense equipment. Checks are carried out to ensure the readiness of the soldiers and the readiness or completeness of the equipment needed.
It is also the duty and responsibility of the security forces to assist in ensuring the smooth distribution of election logistics, which often experiences a number of problems during delivery, especially to several remote or conflict-prone areas such as Papua.
Security forces have also prepared modes of transportation such as planes and ships to anticipate if land access is impassable due to natural disasters such as landslides.
The reason is, some time ago there was a problem in Papua during the distribution of election logistics, namely a landslide there so that the security forces immediately provided assistance so that efforts to distribute election logistics could reach the place in a safe condition.
Security forces from joint personnel from the TNI, the Indonesian National Police (Polri) and the State Intelligence Agency (BIN) guarantee the logistical security of the 2024 General Election by closely monitoring the distribution of ballot papers from Wamena to Puncak Jaya Regency, Central Papua.
This tight control is indeed a very important thing to do because KST Papua is still continuing to carry out their acts of terror in a number of areas in Bumi Cenderawasih. The logistical security measures for the elections were carried out in stages by several flights.
Then, if an emergency occurs, the security forces have prepared sophisticated defense equipment in the form of military air transportation to fully support the smooth distribution of General Election logistics until they reach their destination. Head of Information for the Joint Regional Defense Command (Kapen Kogabwilhan III), Colonel Czi Gusti Nyoman Suriastawa, said that his party was obliged to ensure security stability in the Papua region so that the implementation of the democratic party could run smoothly and full of joy.
Various effective steps and strategies have been prepared by the security forces to be able to deal with attacks from KST Papua, especially during voting during the 2024 General Election.
