1) One killed, One Injured in Papua Gun Attack: Police
January 10, 2013
Timika. An unidentified gunman shot dead a civilian and seriously injured a soldier in Indonesia’s restive Papua province on Thursday, a local military official said.

“A gunman shot dead a man after he attacked our military member, who is now being treated in hospital for a serious gunshot wound on his back,” Papua province’s military spokesman Jansen Simanjutak told AFP.

“We haven’t identified the perpetrator,” he said.

The incident occurred in the Puncak Jaya district, which is believed to be a separatist center.

Gun attacks are not uncommon in Papua in Indonesia’s extreme east, where poorly-armed separatist groups have for decades fought a low-level insurgency on behalf of the mostly ethnic Melanesian population.

Paniai (9/1)—Keberadaan kelompok John Magai Yogi di Kabupaten Paniai terus diburu aparat keamanan militer Indonesia. Bahkan hingga kini, aparat gabungan TNI dan Polri masih mengejarnya setelah awal pekan ini baku tembak di Waidide, Kampung Pugo, Distrik Paniai Timur.
Digelarnya operasi penyisiran terhadap John Magai Yogi dan kelompoknya, Kapolres Paniai, Antonius Diance belum memberikan keterangan resmi. Saat dikonfirmasi melalui telepon selulernya, tidak terhubung.
Meski begitu, sumber tabloidjubi.com menyebut masih berlanjutnya operasi penyisiran tersebut akan berdampak buruk di pihak warga sipil. “Apalagi di puncak Gunung Ekaugi ada pos. Mereka saling jaga itu,” katanya.
Anggota Brimob, polisi dan tentara bertugas di pos itu. Setiap kendaraan yang lewat di jalan raya dirazia aparat keamanan. “Saat ini situasinya tidak aman. Di Pugo tidak ada orang, karena lagi mengungsi. Semua ketakutan. Rumah juga dibakar. Aparat lagi kejar TPN OPM,” kata Pdt. Nico Degei, pemuka umat Kingmi Papua di Paniai, Rabu (9/1).
Pasukan Brimob dari Kelapa II Depok, Makassar dan Polda Papua yang dikirim untuk memperkuat personil Polres Paniai, menurut Nico, belum ditarik. Padahal pengiriman pasukan tersebut hanya kepentingan pengamanan 1 Desember 2012. “Sampai saat ini Paniai aman-aman saja. Tapi kenapa ditambah banyak-banyak, terus belum juga ditarik kembali?” katanya bertanya.
Koordinator National Papua Solidarity (NAPAS), Marthen Goo di Jakarta, Selasa (8/1) kemarin, mengecam terjadinya penyisiran oleh gabungan TNI dan Polri di Kampung Pugo, Paniai. Ia juga menyatakan, mendesak institusi militer segera hentikan aksi kekerasan di Tanah Papua.
Sebelumnya, Senin (7/1) siang, terjadi kontak senjata di Kampung Pugo. Rentetan tembakan saat itu mengagetkan warga setempat. Takut, mereka segera memilih mengungsi ke Madi, Enarotali, dan kampung terdekat lainnya.
Berdalih memburu TPN OPM, warga sipil justru diperlakukan kasar. Terus diinterogasi untuk menunjuk keberadaan John dkk. Menuduh warga setempat ikut membantu dan menyembunyikan kelompok separatis.
“Masyarakat Paniai khususnya di Pugo dan sekitarnya tidak salah. Jadi, sebaiknya kedua kelompok ini menahan diri. Jangan saling kejar, jangan baku tembak, karena masyarakat yang nanti korban,” ujarnya.
Tak hanya terjadi pengungsian. Pagar dan tanaman di kebun milik warga setempat rusak akibat aksi baku tembak di pinggir Jalan Trans Papua poros Paniai-Deiyai. Dalam operasi penyisiran di Kampung Pugo, 13 buah rumah warga terbakar. Satu rumah yang dibakar dicurigai dihuni John Magai Yogi.
Sempat terjadi kontak senjata. Namun belum ada data mengenai korban di kedua kubu. Hari ini, aksi penyisiran oleh militer masih berlanjut. Situasi tegang sejak dua hari lalu belum redah. Warga Pugo tak bisa kembali ke rumah mereka. (Jubi/Markus You)
