Previously it was reported, nearly 2 thousand indigenous people in the Tembagapura District, Mimika Regency in March 2020 were evacuated by the joint military-police apparatus. The evacuation was carried out because they claimed to be traumatized and frightened by the existence of terror from the KKB armed criminal groups from various mountain areas in Papua.

A number of these KKBs were found to be in the vicinity of the residents' villages and fired on the TNI-Polri guard post. The action made residents feel threatened and it was difficult to get food needs and health services. Thousands of indigenous people chose to be evacuated for fear that the November 2017 incident will recur.
