The National Police’s special counterterrorism unit Densus 88 arrested two suspected terrorists in East Java on May 23 and 24, 2023.

“Densus 88 arrested 2 suspects of terrorism criminal acts in the East Java region,” said the National Police spokesperson Brigadier General Ahmad Ramadhan said on Thursday, May 25, 2023.

Ramadhan explained that the two suspects, Y and T, are allegedly members of the Jemaah Islamiah terrorist network and the Jamaah Ansharut Daulah network, respectively.

After the arrests, the police would conduct further investigations and develop the case. “The case and details of the case are still under investigation,” he said.

On Wednesday, May 24, the anti-terror squad searched a house in Dupak Krembangan Village, Surabaya, East Java, which is Y’s home.

The day before, on May 23, a suspected terrorist identified as YR was arrested in Kedungkandang, Malang City, East Java.
