Indonesian Counterterrorist Police Sweep Former FPI Offices in Makassar, South Sulawesi
The Indonesian National Police’s Detachment 88 [Densus 88] counterterrorist unit has raided the former offices of the Islamic Defenders Front [FPI] in Makassar, South Sulawesi province on Tuesday.
The attack occurred less than a week after the police arrested FPI’s ex-secretary general Munarman to determine his awareness about the hardline group’s ties with ISIS as well as regional terror groups like Jamaah Ansharut Daulah [JAD].
South Sulawesi Regional Police spokesman Grand Police Commissioner E. Zulpan confirmed that the raid took place.
