Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) is an Indonesian group that has been reported as linked to the 2018 Surabaya bombings.[1] The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has been reported as claiming responsibility for that incident.[2] The group had been identified by the United States Department of State as a terrorist organization in 2017.[3]

On 31 July 2018, a South Jakarta court made a ruling which outlawed the organization, allowing the arrest of all its members and organisers.[4]
