Can "started" be used as a substitute for "initiated"?

Or "began"?

I believe that would be an adequate translation, too.

Initiated would be in the past but the sentence gives no indication of being in the past. "Who initiates..." would be a better answer.

Who initiate this attack? = also accepted as a correct answer.

The English translation is not correct.

Who initiates the attack? = not accepted, reported.
Who initiates this attack? = not accepted, reported.
Who initiated the attack? = not accepted, reported.
Who initiated this attack? = not accepted, reported.
Who started the attack? = not accepted, reported.
Who started this attack? = not accepted, reported.
Who began the attack? = not accepted, reported.
Who began this attack? = not accepted, reported.

I want to practise Indonesian but the English they want is so bad in this section that I feel like giving up.

Can you also say -- who started this fight?

No, attack specifically means "serangan". If you want to say fight, it would be more appropriate to say "perkelahian".
