Indonesia Travel Warnings-Terrorists Plan to Turn Indonesia into Afghanistan, Iraq
The National Police have learned that terrorists aim to wage a war in cities across Indonesia, which will turn the country into strife-torn Afghanistan and Iraq.
National Police chief Ge told a televised press conference on Friday the terrorists might recruit warriors from overseas stating they will launch a city war as happens in Iraq and Afghanistan and will also bring in mujahids from the two countries. He said the terrorists would continue targeting police and military posts, particularly those which are deemed weak. Three police officers were killed in a pre-dawn attack on a police precinct in Deli Serdang, North Sumatra on Wednesday. Police state that the terrorists had developed their strategic plan as evident in the bank heist in Medan, which he said served as a signal for other members of the terror network in the rest of the country.
Terror attacks in the country have claimed 298 people since 2000.
