Lieutenant Colonel Alvin G. Iyog, Commanding Officer of 2nd Mechanized Infantry Battalion said that security measures will be strengthen to ensure the safety and security of the community.
“As this radical extremist group continues to sow terror and harm innocent civilians, the 1st Mechanized Infantry Brigade will pursue to safeguard the civilians and run after the responsible bandits,” said Col. Efren P. Baluyot, Commander of 1st Mechanized Infantry (Maaasahan) Brigade.
“I directed the field units in the area to intensify their military operation and to hunt the terror group members for such cowardly and desperate acts.
