ZAMBOANGA CITY – At least five Abu Sayyaf bandits were killed during a clash with government troops in the village of Panglahayan in Patikul, Sulu on Wednesday.

A report from Western Mindanao Command said the 5th Scout Ranger Battalion, led by Lieutenant Colonel Marlon Jomalesa, conducted a military operation against the Abu Sayyaf bandits led by Radulan Sahiron and sub-leaders Julie Ekit, Amlon Abtahi and a certain Amah Asam.

Government forces were able to get close to the bandits’ hideout when firefight erupted that resulted to the death of at least 5 members of the Abu Sayyaf Group, according to intel sources.

Six Army soldiers were also wounded in the firefight. Four were brought to the Kuta Teodulfo Bautista Station Hospital in Jolo while the remaining 2 were airlifted to Zamboanga City for further medical attention.

Lt. Gen. Carlito Galvez Jr. said artillery and mortar fire from the reinforcing military units targeted the possible exit routes of the bandits. Additional troops from the 32nd Infantry Battalion were deployed to augment soldiers pursuing the bandits.

At least two high-powered firearms were recovered from the hideout.

16 killed, 8 wounded in BIFF lair assault
BY DEMPSEY REYES ON JUNE 12, 2018


CAMP SIONGCO, Awang, Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao: The air strikes launched by the military’s Joint Task Force Central (JTFC) killed 15 members of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) and an Army soldier, and wounded eight other bandits at the Liguasan Marsh area in Maguindanao.

Capt. Arvin Encinas, spokesman of the 6th Infantry Division (6th ID) told The Manila Times that the bandits traded fire with troops from the 33rd Infantry Battalion (33IB) but were outmaneuvered in about an hour of firefight on Sunday.

The assault resulted in the surrender of terrorist bomb expert Ustadz Anwar Ali alias Omar, 22, and his wife Asnaya Ali, 20.

The soldiers confiscated a .50-caliber sniper rifle and 5.56mm-caliber M4 Carbine from the suspects.


Encinas added that with the killing of 15 Islamic State-inspired BIFF terrorists and the arrest of bomb expert
Anwar Ali, the JTFC successfully dismantled the identified improvised explosive device (IED) factory located in the southern Liguasan Marsh area.

Brig. Gen. Cirilito Sobejana, 6th ID commander, said targets of the air strikes are BIFF bomb makers, noting that they have spread out in Central Mindanao.

“It was the same group [we are targeting]since we have objectives such as clearing the area so when the approach against [the terrorists]was opened, one of our soldiers was hit and died,” he said.

“We are determined to neutralize more BIFF members in the vicinity of Liguasan Marsh to bring peace to Central Mindanao,” Sobejana added.

Troops hoisted the Philippine flag near the BIF hideout in the Liguasan Marsh after the assault.

Meanwhile, Lt. Col. Harold Cabunoc, 33rd IB commander, confirmed the presence of foreign terrorists who were trapped along with several bandits in the area during the operation.

“There are at least one to three foreign nationals. An Indonesian was reportedly wounded but we are still validating it,” Cabunoc said in a text message.
