Additional information: 

Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) was established in Indonesia in 2015 as an umbrella organization for almost two dozen Indonesian extremist groups that pledged allegiance to then-ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.  The ideological leader of JAD is Oman Rochman (QDi.407).  JAD is currently the largest ISIL-affiliated terror network in Indonesia. The group has carried out numerous attacks since its formation, including the May 2018 attacks on three churches in Surabaya, a port city on Java Island’s east coast, killing at least 13 people and injuring 40 others.  In May 2017, the group conducted two suicide bombings in East Jakarta, killing three police officers.  In June 2017, the group attacked a police headquarters in North Sumatra’s provincial capital of Medan, killing a police officer.  In January 2016, the group conducted an attack by a suicide bomber and gunmen in Jakarta’s shopping district, killing two people and injuring 25 others. ISIL has claimed credit for JAD attacks, including the 2018 Surabaya bombings.
