Jakarta (VNA) - The Indonesian National Police (INP)’s counter-terrorism squad, known as Densus 88, have arrested four suspected terrorists who are members of the Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) in West Java province.

Spokesman for the INP, Senior Superintendent Ahmad Ramadhan, said three suspected terrorists were arrested during a raid on June 16 in Pangandaran district, West Java. These suspects participated in training with the JAD in preparation for terrorism acts in September 2019.

On June 18, Densus 88 also arrested another suspected terrorist in Tasikmalaya, West Java.

The JAD is currently the largest IS-linked terrorist group in Indonesia, which carried out several bomb attacks in the Southeast Asian country.
