Military launch rescue ops for latest victims of ASG

PDFPrintE-mail

Government troops are now conducting operations to rescue the six people, including two children, who have been abducted by about 15 suspected Abu Sayyaf bandits in Patikul, Sulu, according to a top military Commander.

Brig. Gen. Cirilito Sobejana, head of Joint Task Force Sulu, said the bandits took Jessy, 55; Nene, 56; Aloh, 22, all surnamed Trinidad, and Lucy, 21; Junjun, 13; and Nelson, 7, all surnamed Hapole.

He said the victims were forcibly taken at gunpoint from their houses at Kalimayahan Village in Barangay Latih at around 8:45 p.m. on Tuesday.

The military said the incident again showed that notorious kidnappers in Sulu are victimizing even their fellow Tausugs and those who have less in life.

"Such hostility reminds us that security is everybody’s responsibility,” Sobejana said.

The civilians could be used by the bandits as human shields during military operations in the province, he added.

The military have also intensified their operations to neutralize the ASG terrorists and rescue all remaining hostages.

The Abu Sayyaf is still holding nine other Filipinos, including five fishermen they took from the waters off Panguratan town last Oct. 14.

Five Indonesians, a Vietnamese and a Dutch man are also believed being held captive by the bandits in Sulu.

In Maguindanao, thousands of residents fled their homes after the military launched offensive against members of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) on Wednesday morning.

The affected residents who come from Shariff Aguak and Datu Unsay towns are appealing for help.

In its report to the Western Mindanao Command, the 6th Infantry Division said the military received an information about the presence of armed groups in Barangay Meta in Datu Unsay town and Barangay Timbangan in Shariff Aguak town.

Upon verification we have confirmed there are armed men and we launched an artillery and air fire mission at 4 am, according to report.

The militsry said there were no casualties on the side of government, including on the side of the BIFF under its commander Ismael Abubakar.

Abubakar, also known as “Kumander Bungos”, was the target of the military operation. Hader Glang
