Jayapura. Three soldiers suffered from gunshot injuries on Monday morning following an attack against a military post in the Tingginambut area of Papua's Puncak Jaya district, alleged to have been lead by a separatist group.

The men were reportedly patrolling near the post when a group of more than three people attacked the post, leading to an exchange of fire  which eventually forced the attackers back into a nearby forest.

The attack injured three soldiers, namely Second Sgt. Dedi, Chief Private Agus and Private Firman. Other oficers from the Mulia subdistrict have reportedly evacuated the soldiers to Jayapura for medical treatment.

Papua military spokesman Lt. Col. Rikas Hidayatullah refused to comment on the incident.

Note. In the Antara news report below it should probably be "attacked eight soldiers " not "killing eight officers" . Although media reports are usually updated later .

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Eight police officers had been attacked by unknown gunmen in the district of Lanny Jaya, Papua, head of the public relations division of the national police command, Inspector General Ronny F Sompie, said.

"At around 12.10pm Western Indonesia Time on July 28, a shooting incident occurred in Indawa in the district of Lanny Jaya, killing eight officers of the Lanny Jaya resort police command," he said in a press statement received here on Monday. 

He said the officers were visiting a village for a neighborhood security system development program when the shooting occurred.

"Eight officers were attacked by an armed criminal group led by Enden Wanimbo," he said.

Ronny said two police officers died on the spot--Second Brigadier Zulkifli D Putra and Second Brigadier Yoga AJ Ginuny--after being shot in the head.

Others meanwhile had suffered injuries--First Brigadier Helsky Bonyadone in the stomach and Second Brigadier Alex Numbery in the temple.

"All the victims had been evacuated to the Wamena general hospital," he said.

Ronny said the site of the incident was only a half hour drive from the Lanny Jaya police resort command or two hours from Wamena.

"Until 4pm, exchange of fire continued involving 20 personnel of the special team from the regional police command and two platoon strong units of Mobile Brigade from the regional police command," he said.

The deputy chief of the regional police command, the director of intelligence, and chief of the Mobile Brigade Unit of the Papua regional police command are set to arrive at Lanny Jaya through Wamena by plane to provide moral support to the police force in the district and encourage them during their operations.
