IID conducts command conference to assess operations
ICC Iligan City (11 November) -- The Philippine Army has still a lot to do in order to go about the task they are mandated to do, particularly, on the manhunt operation against the lawless MILF group (LMG) here in the Lanao provinces.
This is the assessment of Maj. Gen. Nehemias Pajarito, Commander of the First Infantry Division (IID), Philippine Army, on the recent whole day command conference conducted by the unit at its Advance Command Post (ACP) at the 4th InfantryBrigade, IID in Ditucalan, Maria Crisitina, this city.
"What we have done is purely to assess what IID has done in the past three (3) months after the armed conflict which was started by the LMG last August 18 in Lanao del Norte," Pajarito said.
He said they will determine what are the barriers in their continued law enforcement operations of his troops to be able to implement some changes in the operations.
Pajarito also said he is hopeful that all efforts not only of the Armed Forces of the Philippine (AFP) but also of the populace, will give positive results in the manhunt operation against Bravo and his men sooner than expected.
The conference was attended by all four (4) brigade commanders under the IID, namely the 101st, 102nd, 103rd and 104th Brigades and the 3rd Infantry Brigade of the 4th Infantry Division (403rd Bde), all assigned in the two (2) Lanao and Zamboanga provinces.
"This was also because we wanted to size up the situation which were affected by the armed conflict and make some efforts to come up with good plans to be able to gain peace in the said provinces and the rest of the island of Mindanao," Pajarito added. (OSM – Radyo ng Bayan) [top]
