Terrorism in Indonesia: 33 Militants Killed, 170 Terror Cases in 2016

“The number of terror crime cases in Indonesia rose steeply in 2016 due to ‘Operation Tinombala’ in Poso (Central Sulawesi). This operation, jointly conducted by Indonesian police and the army, aims at eliminating Indonesian terrorist cell East Indonesia Mujahidin (in Indonesian: Mujahidin Indonesia Timur, or MIT) that was led by Indonesia’s former most wanted Islamic militant Abu ‘Santoso’ Wardah, an Islamic State (IS) supporter. Although Santoso was killed in July 2016 the operation continues. It is believed that there are still around 10 MIT militants and that Ali Kalora has replaced Santoso as the cell’s new leader.”
