Do not be Careless! This is the Impact of ISIS Leader Killed for Indonesia in the View of Terrorist Observers


Al BaghdadiAl Baghdadi - The death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a special operation carried out by American troops, is considered not going to immediately stop terrorist acts carried out by ISIS as a whole in the whole world. It is feared that a backlash by ISIS sympathizers will emerge over al-Baghdadi's death.

To DW Indonesia, a terrorism observer from the journal Intelligence, Stanislaus Riyanta, argued that ISIS members would consolidate to find a new leader to replace al-Baghdadi who was killed by blowing himself up.

Indonesia itself is one of the countries whose citizens join ISIS in Syria. Based on data from the National Counterterrorism Agency (BNPT) in 2018, there are 1,321 Indonesian citizens who are trying to join ISIS in Syria. A year earlier, in 2017, there were around 600 Indonesians who joined ISIS in Syria, 113 were women, 100 children, and the rest were adult men.

With this large number, Stanislaus stressed that the death of al-Baghdadi gave a signal to Indonesia to improve security against the threat of terror.
beware of the threat of terrorism, "Stanislaus said.

In addition, the Head of the Public Information Section (Kabagpenum) Polri Kombes Pol. Asep Adi Saputra said that currently the Special Detachment (Detachment) 88 Anti-Terror Police Headquarters continues to monitor all terrorist networks in Indonesia. This was in response to Al Baghdadi's death.

Earlier, on Sunday (27 Oct), American President Donald Trump announced that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a special operation by US forces. Al-Baghdadi was known to blow himself up with a vest containing explosives, when he had been cornered at the end of an underground tunnel. The explosion also killed three of his children. Al-Baghdadi's body was immediately thrown into the sea a few hours after it was identified.
