An Islamic State-linked militant group in central Indonesia has killed four villagers, one of whom was beheaded, and set seven houses on fire, a police officer said Saturday.
National Police spokesman Awi Setiyono said the incident occurred Friday in the village of Lemban Tongoa in Central Sulawesi Province. The motive for the attack was not immediately clear.
Witnesses told the police that a group of about 10 people carrying firearms had launched the attack. Three among them have been identified as members of the Mujahidin Indonesia Timur, or MIT.
Led by Ali Ahmad, who is widely known among terrorist networks and police as "Ali Kalora," the group evolved from a local branch of Jemaah Islamiyah, which is linked to the international terrorist network al-Qaida, to become a staunch supporter of IS.
"A companion of joint military and police personnel has been deployed to hunt for the Ali Kalora group," Awi said.
MIT consists of militants of a Muslim radical cell who joined the conflict between Christians and Muslims between 1998 and 2001 in Poso Regency in the province that claimed about 1,000 lives.

Isn't ali kalora dead yet last year?
Yes. Apparently the entire reason for the attack was to show that killing him did not effect the terror groups capabilities.

Still though. The fact that the attack took until now to materialize and was not done during symbolic moment (maulid nabi, christmas, hari kemerdekaan) shows that the group did suffer a drop on effectiveness for a while

This was over Engineered by some politician from Jakarta during Indonesian critical time at medio early 2000 and eventually the problem persist until today. The case where comunal conflict between inter religion population rampant on middle to the east of Indonesian provinces happened during 1999 toward early 2000.

These so-called "Muslims", if you even call them that anymore, give a bad name to real Muslims in our country actually working and contributing to society.

Insha Allah, they will be caught and will face justice for their crimes.

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - National Police Head of Public Relations Division Insp. Gen. Argo Yuwono said that the Tinombala Task Force had been launched to investigate the killings of a family in Lemban Tongoa Village, Palolo District, Sigi, Central Sulawesi.

Argo appealed to residents to not panic and carry out their daily activities as usual.
“The public does not need to worry and stay calm because the Armed Force (TNI) and the National Police will patrol and will work together with the community. Please carry out activities as usual.

Any idea what "daily necessities" they were demanding from the villager?
If I were operating in a small group (under 12 men) in the jungle of Celebes, I won't worry too much about foods (plenty of foods in the jungle) or I can get it by scavenging it of the villager field. Unless of course the group consist far more than 12 men, then logistic is a real issue.
