Army blames MILF for latest ambush on soldiers in Lanao del Norte

Army blames MILF for latest ambush on soldiers in Lanao del Norte

By

MANILA, Philippines—An Army spokesman said Sunday they suspect MILF rebels to be behind the ambush of a military convoy in Lanao del Norte that killed two soldiers (not three as initially reported) and wounded four others, including two officers who remain in critical condition.

Major Harold Cabunoc, the acting Army spokesman, said troops of the 5th Infantry Battalion under Lieutenant Colonel Bagnus Gaerlan were ambushed about 11 a.m. Sunday while traversing the Tukuran-Parang Road in Barangay (village) Payong in Sultan Naga Dimaporo town.

Gaerlan, who was riding in a civilian vehicle, was unharmed. Those killed and injured, meanwhile, were on board a KM450 military truck.

“The identities of the assailants are unknown but the MILF has forces roaming around in the area. They don’t have an ‘area of temporary stay’ in that town,” Cabunoc said.

“If it is established that the MILF is behind the ambush, this is a clear ceasefire violation,” he said.

He said Col. Ricardo Visaya, commander of the 104th Infantry Brigade, has dispatched reinforcements backed by armored vehicles to pursue the perpetrators.

According to Visaya, Gaerlan and his men were on their way to visit troops when they were ambushed.

The initial report reaching the Army said Gaerlan was on his way to facilitate the surrender of two MILF members.

Meanwhile, the Army said MILF rebels led by a certain Hassan Asnawi were behind the ambush of a group of rubber plantation workers in Basilan around dawn Sunday.

Five rubber plantation workers, including a government militia, were killed while eight others were wounded when about 40 MILF rebels ambushed their truck in sitio (settlement) Along-Along between Barangay Upper Cabengbeng and Barangay Sapah Bulak in Sumisip, Basilan around 5:30 a.m. Sunday.

Civilian active auxiliary (CAA) member Fernando Tantalo was off duty at the time of the ambush.

Cabunoc said those killed and injured were aboard a civilian truck owned by the Tumahubong Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Inc. Development Cooperative (Tarbidc) that was used to haul rubber.

He said Army Scout Rangers were sent to go after MILF rebels.

Cabunoc said pursuit operations have been ongoing because according to ceasefire rules between the government and the MILF, the area where the ambush took place was not an “area of temporary stay” of the MILF.

He said the closest recognized MILF “areas of temporary stay” were in Barangays Baguinda and Guinanta.

Invoking the existing ceasefire agreement, the government did not pursue the MILF rebels who killed 19 Army Special Forces troops and wounded 14 others last Tuesday in Barangay Cambug in Albarka, Basilan.

The military, however, claimed the 41 Special Forces troops were four kilometers away from the recognized MILF “area of temporary stay” in Albarka when a large group of MILF rebels led by Dan Laksaw Asnawi ambushed them.

    Never trust the MILF. Wherever the ASG and other lawlwess elements are, they are also there. Why? Of course, they are one. TRAITORS! After all, you can always safely stereotypes muslims. They are always traitors. Just listen to the Afghanistan president statement. After all what the US did to Afghanistan, they betrayed the US by saying the if Pakistan goes to war with US, they will help Pakistan. to be very honest, I am not surprised. You know what, I am against the extermination of the 6 million jews during the holocaust. I think Hitler made a big mistake, he did it with the wrong race. It should not be the Jews. Nuff said…………

        Mindanao belongs to the people of the Philippines and there is nothing you can do about it. Just because early Filipino muslims converted to Christianity does not mean they and their descendants can no longer resides in Mindanao. Saying Mindanao belongs only to Muslim is nothing short of pathetic and childish.  And who promised Mindanao to muslims?  MILF and Abu Sayyaf? If you want your promised land then go to the Middle East where Islam rules.  The Philippines (Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao) is a free and democratic country and will always be, no matter what.

      That will triple if there is an all out war. This is something I cannot comprehend. You are advocating for an all out war when even without an all out war you are always alert. It will become worse if there is an all out war.  As to super ferry bombings, those are isolated threats. When war breaks out, Mindanao bear the brunt of the fighting. 

      • Anonymous

        Mindanao has carried and is still carrying the brunt of the fighting. When Erap ordered an all out war, nawala ang yabang ni Hashim Salamat sa Camp abubakar. When Arroyo tried to pass the MOA-AD and we resisted it, we were ready for the MILF’s rampage. The result, all they did was a few bombings, bombings which we consider an everyday occurence…Lets go far back, when we were declared part of ARMM we hoped we had a leader like Maria Clara ‘Caling” Lobregat who resisted the inclusion of Zamboanga in the ARMM. Bottom line, the only way you can get respect from MILF is to show them you will not tolerate their treacherous ways. Decisive Leadership is what we want. In the absence of that, MILF WILL TREAT  US LIKE DOGS.

    If the MILF is not sincere in peace talks, then why their leaders made speeches in universities like Ateneo de Manila and University of San Carlos. They tried to reach out. And in fairness to the MILF, their leaders are sending orders at ground level not to launch attacks and ambuscades. Trust is important. As to those killed in ambush, did not Pnoy himself promised that justice be served? In this latest attack in Lanao del Norte, the military is sending reinforcement to pursue the perpetrators of the ambush. So it is really not true that the government is not doing anything.

I have news for you, my friend. The PH military has the people’s support, as well as the international community, in fighting terrorists.  If the MILF is proven to be supporting the ASG, God help them because we will wipe them off the face of the earth.

      Mauna kang magvolunteer. To go to an all out war with defective equipment and obsolete training will do nothing but add up the body count. Madaling mag demand pag hindi ka o kapamilya mo ang sasabak no?

        Please don’t under estimate the AFP. No one goes to war without sufficient training. Any military man who had undergone BMT can be deployed to a battlezone. As a former military man myself, dying in a war is something that we have accepted from the moment we chose this profession.

    @ Abdul: Mindanao is not a Muslim land. And not all Muslims in Mindanao shared your view. It is a pity why you choose a radical stance. Becoming a jihadist is a personal choice. I dont see that religion causes people to be radical like you. Its your own choice to be one and follow Bin Laden’s teachings of hatred and inhumanity. I hope someday, you will be enlighten that you can serve your God by spreading love instead of hatred and violence.

      You are deeply mistaken Kaffir, in fact, the entire Philippines was supposed to be under the Influence of Islam only if it wasn’t for the arrival of the western pagan preachers. But its a good thing that martyr Muslim warriors like the MILF and Abu Sayyaf exists to continue the fight for Freedom and in the name of Allah (Praise be with him). I am not going to argue with you since basing from your previous posts, you are someone whom we can use at our disposal. Thank you for supporting our Freedom loving people. May Allah give you guidance. Salaam.

        Abdul: I am not your ally and I am not supporting MILF. Only Manila is under Muslim rule at that time. The rest are pagan worshippers. Islam has not really established in the Philippines except for Sulu and in Maguindanao. To say that the entire Philippines is a Muslim country is very inaccurate.

        Islam would have eventually spread if it wasn’t for the pagan missionaries from the west. But it doesn’t matter now. Whats important are people like you who oppose the war. Our Islamic Martyrs Army needs more time to gather new recruits while at the same time inflicting as much casualties to the pagan Military swines. Anti War sentiments are very instrumental to buy time for our MILF brothers to fortify their positions and make life very difficult for the occupiers. Salaam.

        قاتلوا الذين لا يؤمنون بالله ولا باليوم الآخر ولا نرى أن يمنع هاث التي حرم الله ورسوله، ولا نعترف دين الحق، حتى لو كانوا من أهل الكتاب، حتى انهم يدفعون الجزية مع التقديم على استعداد، ويشعر أنفسهم مهزوما. إذا المنافقين، وهؤلاء الذين في قلوبهم مرض، والمتشائمون في المدينة لا تتوقف لا، ونحن نحث اليك حقا يجب على ضدها ، ثم أنها ستكون جيرانكم في ذلك ، ولكن قليلا. الرجيم، سيتم القبض عليهم أينما وجدت وقتل مع ذبح شرسة

    A president  must make hard decisions no matter who gets hurt, otherwise, he has no business being a president. Is pnoy a “Yellow” president as haters alleged for a long time? If blood should shed in order to attain peace in the long term, let it shed. IF Pnoy is afraid to make a decison that may cause loss of lives, Pnoy should quit and let the new president order the annihilations of these pigs . Using loss of innocent lives as justification to allow the rampaging rebels to kill people is pure cowardice. Pnoy said he will go after those killers and will give justice to murdered soldiers. Fine. But how? can you enter areas controlled by rebels? you can’t-you must ask permission first from  MILF. Will MILF surrender their comrades to AFP? No- because they themselves are part of this mayhem. Pnoy will be selective in seeking justice and only those responsible will be brought to justice-Fine, but how-has pinoy the capacity to sieve the rotten from the clean? Berating his own soldiers and threatening court martial while in mourning is sheer stupidy and unpresidential. This will cause soldiers’ morale to plummet and the rebels to be even more motivated to go on with their killing spree, knowing Pnoy will not lift a finger to retaliate. Peace has limit according? Up to where and when? when every house shall have been surrounded by these pigs (by patrick henry)? BTW-yellow means coward, sissy and no balls, figuratively.

    Ang punto ko lang dito, let us trust the President on this matter. Let us weigh options. Let us think of the consequences. madaling mag declare ng gyera. Pero did we think of the cost? We must decide properly because if what will happen is the inevitable that we will have war, sama sama tayong lahat dito. Think about your families, their future, the country kung palagi tayong utak pulbura.

    Pnoy is adviced to read and re-read “Give me Liberty or Give me death” by Patrick Henry. This should awaken him to rethink his position. That speech is very timely in our history. Part of that speech is hereto attached. Pnoy Read and be awaken:

     ”…They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

    It is in this vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace– but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

    For AbdulSlumGaliz…..Islam-satanic pagan infidels from the Middle East failed to spread thanks
    to missionaries from the west. But it doesn’t matter now. Whats important
    are people like you who favors an all out war. The Islamic Martyrs Army needs
    more time to gather new recruits because they are dying fast because of the Philippine Military. War sentiments are
    very instrumental to the death of the MILF they cannot fortify their
    positions and their life is very difficult because of the Christians driving away muslim land occupiers. Your god is Balaam.

    Itong mga nag ambush ng mga sundalo ay mga kampon ng demonyo. Akala nila nababanal sila pag gumawa sila ng mga ganyang mga katraydoran. Akala nila panalo na sila pag gumagawa sila ng ganyang kataksilan. Sa aking pananaw magagaya lang sila kay saddam,bin laden,at khadafi! dahil hindi sila tunay na muslim! sila ay mga hippocrito nagkukunwaring mga muslim pero ang puso nila mga ganid na lobo!. Di ba sina bin laden,khadafi,saddam bukambibig nila ang infidels! at God is great. Pero nong gyinera sila ng america na biggest devil para silang mga dumi ng tao. Ang masaklap hindi naman ang amerika ang pumatay sa kanila kundi kapwa nila.

    To those who are recklessly advocating a coup, I hope you will enlist soon when a coup is successfully mounted.  The military can use all abled bodied men and women like you to effect  a rambo type assault to finish off all the terrorist in the country after the coup is in effect.  Only a military coup will accomplish that kind of goal right? Oh by the way, you better make sure you have enough arsenal and hope other western countries will help re-supplying military supplies.  However, military grab from civilian government is never attractive to western countries so you probably will run out of supplies what then?  Balik na naman tayo sa kangkungan zoiloperez?

    I thin k Mr. President you ought to make a decision quick. The enemy is still resupplying, and fortifying their defenses.  

    Yes peace is ok.

    But as a President you should be also asking the military how capable we are if a major war erupts.

    An ‘area of temporary stay’? I guess the MILF don’t have such an area they defy the rules completely and they can ambush and kill the soldiers any place they want and use the rules as the reason for doing criminal acts. They have check points in the national highways of Sultan Kudarat and Maguindanao  showing their military wares and fatigue uniforms to civilian passerby. Why are this armed bandits so blessed to carry high power firearms while I have to get a permit just to have a .22 caliber hand gun and could not even carry it outside my home. With a “super confuse prexy of ours” who will defend us…Pnoy’s Kabarilan or Kafatid sa Federasyon. The government media pronouncement of 10 billion peso budget released is just for sugar coating, the MILF won’t buy that, they know Abad will not release it, why? Pnoy do not trust the AFP even if he is their commander in chief. Pnoy consider the AFP and GMA are of the same kind..they are his nemesis. Happy days MI’s the yellow president is on your side, nothing to worry about. Just shoot at the soldiers and if they fire back report it to Pnoy sure pagalitan niya ang mga sundalo.
