Army to continue law enforcement operations vs splintered LMG

ICC Iligan City (11 November) -- The Philippine Army will continue its law enforcement operations against lawless MILF group (LMG) leader Bravo, even as it sticks to the statement that the LMG have splintered and resorted to smaller groups.

Thus stressed Lt. Col. Agane Adriatico, Civil Military Operations (CMO) Chief, G7, First Infantry Division (IID), Philippine Army, during a media forum at the Information Command Center (ICC), Philippine Information Agency, this city. 10

Adriatico said the LMG's splintering into small groups can be manifested by their recent harassment made on the Army troops that took place at around 11:30 p.m. last Nov. 9, in Balindong, Lanao del Sur (LDS).

At that time, elements of "C" Company of the 65th Infantry Battalion, PA was establishing a temporary patrol base in Barangay Bubong Kalabaan and crossing national highway going towards Bulalan all in Balindong town when they were harassed by a number of LMG.

Adriatico said a firefight ensued which lasted for 30 minutes resulting in one wounded in action (WIA) who was hit at the back of his body on the government side.

However, due to the darkness of the evening, the number of casualties from the enemy side could not be determined, as it is their usual practice to drag their wounded comrades, Adriatico added. (RCA/PIA 10) [top]
