West Papua Revolutionary Army claimed responsibily for the action at Wutung, PNG-West Papua border that killed 2 Indonesian soldiers on October 1, 2019.

From the statement: “Today, October 1st, 2019, at 8:00AM, in Wutung, the border area between West Papua and Papua New Guinea, the West Papua Revolutionary Army attacked Indonesian military at the border that came to kill Melanesians in our own land.

This action is in response to deployment of tens of thousands of military and police with full arms to terrorise and kill Melanesian civilians in West Papua…

Indonesian military and police with full arms should fight West Papua Revolutionary fighters, not unarmed civilians, children and women. They should re-consider their actions, because West Papua is part of a bigger Melanesian and South Pacific families and we will not stay quiet because of state-organised acts of terror, intimidation and murder.

Wake up! Raise up! Defend your dignity! All Melanesians, from Sorong to Wallis-Futuna.”
