PIA Press Release

1ID commander says they are ready for any eventuality

by Apipa P. Bagumbaran

Islamic City of Marawi (30 November) -- All forces under the army's 1st Infantry Division especially the 103rd and 601st brigades have been preparing for contingencies.

First ID commander Major General Romeo D. Lustestica said this in response to the instruction of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief of Staff, Gen. Ricardo A. David, to the soldiers to prepare for the worst conditions.

We have laid down our contingency plan and we have already informed the Western Mindanao Command and the general headquarters of the required resources, augmentation forces and other necessities by the two brigades that the division cannot provide, Lustestica further said.

Other issues and concerns were also elevated to the higher authorities for them to address just in case anything happens, he added.

The 1ID commander stressed that they are in the maximum deterrent mode right now and are ready to parry off any attempts of hostilities.

But since the policy of the government is to have a peace process, we, as part of the government, will support it, Lustestica said.

However, we will not neglect the possibility of a snag in the peace process so we will continue to be ready for any eventuality, he further said.

The 103rd (Haribon) brigade is based in Marawi City while the 601st (Unifier) brigade is based in Iligan City. (PIA Marawi) [top]
