Soldiers escape unscathed after attack by Abu Sayyaf

From the Mindanao Times (Jun 6): Soldiers escape unscathed after attack by Abu Sayyaf

TROOPS of the 68th and 69th Infantry Battalion were attacked by alleged sub-leaders of the Abu Sayyaf group in their camp in Barangay Katian, Indanan, Sulu on Saturday around 6:20 p.m.

The two battalions were sent to Jolo, Sulu last Sept. 6, 2016 to help in the fight against the terror group in the area, according to the report of the regional police of the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (PRO-ARMM).

Investigation conducted by Indanan Municipal Police Station showed that the troops were attacked believed to be under ASG sub-leader Aldrin Bagadi alyas Shining and Mujakkal Bagadi.
No casualties on the government side were reported.

The said attack was believed to be a retaliation for the military operation conducted by military forces last June 2 at the vicinity of Barangay Langpas, Indanan which resulted to the apprehension of two sons of Mujakkal.
The operation also resulted to the confiscation of four motorcycles at nearby house of said ASG group.
