COTABATO CITY, Aug. 13 (PNA) –- Some 100 members of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) attacked two military installations in Maguindanao Tuesday night but were repelled by government forces, an Army official here said.

Col. Dickson Hermoso, speaking for the 6th Infantry Division, said the BIFF terrorists attacked the Army detachments in Barangays Magaslong and Buayan in Datu Piang town in Maguindanao, sending Moro villagers running for their lives.

No casualty was reported on the government side.

The simultaneous attacks on the roadside detachments of the 6th Infantry Division Reconnaissance Company was apparently a retaliatory attacks by the BIFF after four of its members were killed in similar harassment four days ago, according to Hermoso.

He said about 100 BIFF bandits crawled near the Army detachments in Barangays Magaslong and Buayan and, without warning, fired assault rifles and anti-tank rockets on the bunkers of soldiers at past 10 p.m.

“Of course, we returned fire to drive them away, forcing them to retreat back to the marshland,” Hermoso said.

He said the same group repeatedly harassed last week combatants of the 45th Infantry Battalion and the 6th ID’s 61st and 62nd Reconnaissance Companies guarding a former BIFF camp in Barangay Ganta, situated in the boundary of Datu Piang and Sharif Saydona towns.

He said the harassment sent several families fleeing to safer barangays.

The humanitarian agency of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) had already extended assistance to the displaced families, the same families from the two villages who have been fleeing every time soldiers and BIFF members trade mortars and bullets.

“The lives of civilians are becoming more and more miserable because of these activities by the BIFF. Their acts scare civilians,” Hermoso said. (PNA)
