Separatist groups in Papua, which have been labeled a terrorist group, need to be taken firmly, because they are increasingly violent in torturing the community. In addition, the existence of separatist and terrorist groups in Papua is increasingly troubling. They must be eradicated in order to create peace in the Land of Papua.
The government claims that armed criminal groups in Papua are terrorist organizations, not just separatists. This refers to the terrorism law, where their actions can be categorized as terrorists. Because they use violent means, killing civilians without mercy, so that their goals can be achieved.
After being declared a terrorist group, the criminal group became angry. They do not accept being labeled terrorists and insist on independence from Indonesia. So that the attitude of those playing victims makes the public upset, because they have messed around by killing civilians and security forces, destroying public facilities, and they are the ones who blame others.
To eradicate the Separatist and Terrorist Groups in Papua, 400 soldiers from Infantry Battalion 315 / Garuda were brought in. These troops were nicknamed the forces of demons, because they were so fierce in fighting against the country’s enemies. It is hoped that this additional assistance will make all terrorist members in Papua be arrested.
After that, these troops joined other forces to be deployed directly to the conflict area in Ilaga, Puncak Regency. They immediately worked together to crush the enemy and eradicate the separatist and terrorist groups. The soldiers are excited because they have strong desires to protect the sovereignty of the country. The efforts of the Indonesian apparatus and government to eliminate separatism from the face of the Indonesian soil are strongly supported by the Papuan people.

Why should separatist and terrorist groups be eradicated? Because these separatist groups have committed crimes too often. Starting from frightening residents with firearms, forcing them to fly the Morning Star flag (the OPM national flag), killing civilians and shooting security forces with snipers.
Surely the people in Papua are starting to be nervous about whether there will actually be a war between the authorities and terrorist separatist groups. However, they need not be afraid, because the arrival of the troops is to protect and defend civilians, including indigenous Papuans.
Soldiers must have had a strategy and calculated the location when attacking members of separatist and terrorist groups. They chose a place that was far from public places and made sure there would be no injuries from civilians around. So people don’t have to be afraid.
If separatist and terrorist groups are left alone and not labeled terrorists, it will endanger civilians. We certainly don’t want this bad possibility to happen, so we have to catch the KKB all over Papua.
It is mandatory to take action against separatist and terrorist groups in Papua because they destroy peace in Papua. So that when there is an addition of military troops, it feels natural. Because they will secure all civilians in Papua, so as not to become victims of the violence of armed terrorist separatist criminal groups. ()
