He explained that there were 1,000 more CITIZENS who are members and become sympathizers of ISIS.
"Yes, if I say 1,000 more who joined ISIS I know," said Said Aqil in the Building of the PGI, Central Jakarta, Saturday (11/1).
Said also reminded the government to take care of it and ask the CITIZENS who contaminated the terrorist network should be filtered back.
