INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta- National Police Chief Gen Tito Karnavian supports the establishment of a Joint Special Operations Command (Koopssusgab) involving the TNI to combat terrorists.

"I agree with the Commander of the TNI, I ask the father of Panglima Marshal Hadi (Tjahjanto) to force the TNI into the operation," said Tito at the Presidential Palace Jakarta, Tuesday (5/22/2018)

Tito made the announcement after attending a limited meeting on counter terrorism prevention and control led by President Joko Widodo and attended by Vice President Jusuf Kalla and Cabinet Ministers.

"Terrorist operations in Indonesia are indeed 75 percent intelligent, while the striking (action) of 5 percent and 20 percent is filed for the judicial process because Indonesia is a democracy that prioritizes the rule of law," said Tito.

Koopssusgab is a joint anti-terror team of three TNI dimensions. These troops are from Sat-81 Gultor Command of Special Forces owned by the Army, Detachment Jalamangkara TNI Navy and Satbravo 90 Command Typical Forces of the Air Force.

An example of Koopssusgab was Operation Tinombala in Poso to capture the Mujahideen of East Indonesia (MIT) led by Sansoto.

"So the principle of the handling of terrorists is to win public support, if the public supports state measures, then terrorists will not be able to grow, they 'survive' but only ripples, but if the state is not supported by the public, it also makes public sympathy to groups. So I'm of the opinion that the current mechanism is like a Tinombala operation where the power of the police and the TNI combine, "Tito said.

As for some children who also became victims of the terrorist ideology of both parents as happened in Surabaya, Tito admitted that the government is seeking preventive measures so that children are not exposed to radical understanding.

"But the police cannot work alone, therefore we ask the government, the Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection, Ministry of Social Affairs, ministries in the field of economics, education, mass organizations, NGOs who cares please this problem we are looking for a solution together not to take the children , involved terrorism, "added Tito.

Head of the National Agency for Counter-Terrorism Suhardi Alius as quoted by Antara said the institution he leads focuses on doing deradicalization and trying to restore nationalism through the school curriculum.

"The radicalization of the lesson includes teachers and lecturers," he said.

On May 13, 2018, the city of Surabaya was rocked by a suicide attack. The first bomb exploded in the Immaculate Santa Maria Catholic Church, Indonesian Christian Church (GKI) Jalan Diponegoro and Pentecostal Church on Arjuno Street which caused the death toll reached 14 people, including the perpetrators allegedly numbered six people who are one family, while the injured recorded reached 41 people.

Hose 14 hours later, a bomb explosion occurred in Block B 5th floor of Rusunawa Wonocolo, Sidoarjo. The explosion claimed three lives that also constituted an alleged terrorist family that would carry out a bomb attack.

"There are people who participate in different ways, right? Someone goes along with how are their children? Well the process of radicalization now to the child we see in Surabaya, it's sure to be told parents," said Suhardi.
