CAMP SIONGCO, Maguindanao – Government troops of JTFC under 90th Infantry Battalion responded to an explosion along a national highway in Maguindanao on Saturday evening, November 30, 2019.

The explosion happened at 6:25 p.m. between the boundaries of Datu Anggal Midtimbang and Guindulungan in Maguindanao. Upon arrival, 90th IB troops with Guindulungan Municipal Police, cordoned off the street for safety and security reasons while waiting for the arrival of the Explosive and Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team.

Troops also continued to search for the possibility of more improvised explosive devices planted in the nearby areas.


While clearing the area, it was found out that the device was fashioned from an 81mm mortar round.

The Saturday’s bomb explosion had no reported casualties or damages to properties in the civilian community.

“It is believed that terrorists from the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) and Dawlah Islamiya Terror Group (DITG) set off the explosion as part of their planned atrocities in Central Mindanao,” said Maj. Gen. Diosdado C. Carreon, Commander of Joint Task Force Central.
He also added that that explosion was meant to divert the attention of JTFC troopers from the on-going combat operations and scare the people in nearby communities.
