Komando Jihad

Komando Jihad is an Indonesian Islamic extremist group that existed from 1968 until it was dissolved through the actions of the security services in the mid 1980s.

Hijack of Garuda Indonesian Airways DC-9

On 28 March 1981 five members of Komando Jihad boarded a plane that was on an Indonesian internal flight and took it and the 57 passengers to Bangkok after refueling in Malaysia. They were armed with machine guns and dynamite, and demanded the release of 20 political prisoners, that all "Jew officials and Israeli militarists" be expelled from Indonesia, and that they be given $1.5 million dollars. After four days, Indonesian commandos stormed the plane, killing four out of the five hijackers, with the fifth jailed. Apart from injuries to the pilot and a member of the flight crew, all other passengers and crew were unharmed.
