Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) is an Indonesian group that has been reported as linked to the 2018 Surabaya bombings[1] and the 2019 Jolo Cathedral bombings.[2][3][4] The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has been reported as claiming responsibility for both attacks.[5][6] The group had been identified by the United States Department of State as a terrorist organisation in 2017.[7]

On 31 July 2018, a South Jakarta court made a ruling which outlawed the organisation, allowing the arrest of all its members and organisers.[8]

Two members of the JAD were believed to have conducted the knife assault on security minister Wiranto on 10 October 2019, which resulted in Wiranto being hospitalized. Three other people, including a policeman, were stabbed and injured.[9]
