Listyo revealed, throughout 2022, the MIT Poso terrorist group will not carry out terror attacks on the community.

According to Listyo, there were no terror attacks and no casualties in 2022 because the joint forces continued to chase and arrest the MIT Poso group.

"This is different in 2021 where there are still six victims who died as a result of four terror attacks from the MIT group," he said.

Listyo said that the personnel involved in Operation Mandago Raya throughout 2022 had arrested seven members of the Poso MIT terrorist. Among them, three terrorists were arrested and found dead.
