Tabloid Jubi - January 9, 2023

Jayapura, Jubi – Spokesman for the West Papua National Liberation Army (TPNPB) Sebby Sambom said that in early January 2023, the headquarters had received official reports from TPNPB Leaders in several Defense Regional Commands related to a series of attacks on the Indonesian military (TNI) and police in Papua.

"On January 7, TPNPB KODAP XXXV Bintang Mountains attacked and shot dead TNI/police intelligence, shot TNI/police patrol cars, the Dimonim Airplane which transported military and police members, and burned 4G towers," said Sambom forwarding a statement from TPNPB chief of General Staff Maj. Gen. Teryanus Satto on Sunday, January 8, 2023.

Sambom said they carried out the attack at different times and places throughout the Land of Papua in early January 2023.

"The commanders of the XXXV East Bintang Defense Area have returned to shoot with the security forces in Bintang Mountains, precisely in the Esipding Village of Serambakon District. We managed to shoot two spies disguised as motorcycle taxi drivers," he said.

Sambom said that at SMKN 1 Road in Oksibil, Bintang, his party claimed to have shot a plane carrying Indonesian forces.

The third attack took place at 01:10 p.m. Papua Time in Ipukdol Village. TPNPB troops under the leadership of Kodap XXXV East Star commander Brig. Gen. Ananias Ati Mimin, together with Kodap XXXV East Star operations commander Maj. Yospen Mimin and Battalion commander 3 Snow Troops Col. Elly Kasipka, managed to shoot one patrol car containing police.

"Two passing trucks loaded with joint TNI/police members have been successfully shot," he said.

Sambom said his party had given a stern warning to all Indonesian immigrants to leave West Papua immediately because the revolution war would soon begin.

"But if they are stubborn and stay, then we are ready to kill them because they are part of the Indonesian Security Forces. Once again, please leave our land Papua from Sorong to Merauke. If you still resist, then we will execute you," he said.

"TPNPB under Gen. Goliath Naaman Tabuni and operations commander Maj. Gen. Lekagak Telenggen is responsible for the West Papua National Liberation War," he said. (*)
