Fifteen individuals from the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) dead from a military task in Liguasan Marsh in Maguindanao.
“15 were affirmed dead, 10 were harmed, and two others were caught,” 6th Infantry Division Commander Cirilito Sobejana said.
This came as government troops on Sunday led a military activity in the southern Liguasan Marsh territory, where the fundamental explosives office of the BIFF was wrecked.
Inhabitants in regions close to the swamp, incorporating an expected 10,000 in Pikit, Cotabato, have cleared the zone as the offensives proceeded.
As indicated by Sobejana, the two caught BIFF individuals are as of now being interrogated. They are known as Ustadz Anwar Ali, 22, and Asnaya Ali, 20.
“The suspects tossed their weapons and bombs in the water, when we blocked all their escape routes. Ustadz Anwar, a bomb expert,” Lt. Col. Harold Cabunoc of the 33rd Infantry Battalion said.
The military seized a .50 caliber sniper rifle, and a 5.56 mm M4 Carbine from the suspects.
The military recuperated three explosive devices (IEDs) and bomb segments from the zone.
Take after on activities were directed to guarantee that the fear based oppressors were kept in the zone and to keep an overflow to close-by towns.
