Three more members of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters under Karialan faction laid down their arms in Pikit, Cotabato on March 20.
Daud Raguiab, Faizal Pangilan, and Ali Udas Kasim surrendered Friday morning to soldiers of the 7th Infantry Battalion in Barangay Ladtingan, Pikit.
Maj. Gen. Diosdado Carreon, Joint Task Force Central commander, said the surrender is a result of the military's continuing convergence efforts and information operations in the area.
The trio yielded one Cal .50 rifle, one RPG, one M79 Grenade Launcher, and pieces of ammunition.
"More rebels decide to surrender and help our ground forces in working out our anti-terrorism campaign. We mean to sustain these gains through purposive offensives and community engagements in the area," said Lt. Gen. Cirilito Sobejana, commander of the Western Mindanao Command.
"We work hand in hand with local government units and agencies in aiding the reintegration and reformation of former rebels in Mindanao," the Commander added.
