Army troops recover CTG’s war materials after clashes in Sultan Kudarat

CAMP SIONGCO, Awang, DOS, Maguindanao – An anti-personnel mine was recovered including several war materiel and ammunition after a brief firefight of government security forces against more or less 15 Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) members in Barangay Baluan, Palimbang, Sultan Kudarat Province Friday afternoon (July 29, 2022).

The government troops overran the harbor site and recovered one (1) anti-personnel mine, galvanometer, backpack, 30 meters wire, 88 rounds of 7.62 mm ammunition, subversive documents, and several personal belongings from the CTG.

Colonel Michael Santos, Brigade Commander of 603rd Infantry Brigade said the soldiers were conducting combat clearing operations at the said place of the incident and were encountered by CTG under alias Rayray, an intel officer of FSMR.

“The firefight lasted for about 20 minutes. After which, the enemy scampered into different directions while the troops immediately conducted pursuit operations to the fleeing enemy”, Col. Santos said.

Major General Roberto Capulong, Acting Commander of the Joint Task Force Central and 6th Infantry (Kampilan) Division lauded the engaging infantrymen that made another major setback to the remaining CTGs in South-Central Mindanao.

Similarly, Maj. Gen. Capulong reiterated the call to the remaining members of the CTGs who are still hiding in the hinterlands to return to mainstream society and stop wasting their lives on a misguided ideology that will eventually result in their demise.

“You still have time to heed the call of reconciliation, return to the folds of the law and be back to the mainstream of society. The JTF Central and 6ID, together with the local government units through the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP), will assist and help you to start anew. Take the chance to start a peaceful and harmonious life with your family and loved ones,” the Division Commander pleaded.
