DAVAO CITY — At least four soldiers were wounded in yet another clash in Datu Salibo, Maguindanaoon Thursday.

Capt. Jo-ann Petinglay, spokesperson for the military’s 6th Infantry Division, said by phone that a company of soldiers were conducting combat patrol in Barangay Tee at around 9 a.m. when they clashed with an undetermined number of Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters gunmen.

Petinglay did not identify the wounded soldiers.


Both forces were still exchanging gunfire as of this posting and that two helicopters had been deployed to conduct air support and to evacuate the wounded government soldiers, she said.

Clashes between the Philippine Army soldiers and BIFF rebels have been on and off in Maguindanao for weeks now.  SFM
