President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has revived a special military force to strengthen Indonesia’s fight against terrorism.

“To address the escalating threats on the nation’s ideology, sovereignty and security, as well as to protect all Indonesians, the government needs the Indonesian Military [TNI] to have a special operation force,” Jokowi said on Monday as quoted by tempo.co.

The Special Operations Command (Koopsus) is set to assist the National Police in antiterrorism operations under certain conditions.

The special force is regulated under Presidential Regulation No. 42/2019 after a second amendment of Presidential Regulation No.10/2010 on the organization of the TNI.
