PNP commemorates gallantry of SAF44

The Philippine National Police (PNP) has commemorated the gallantry of 44 members of Special Action Force (SAF) who sacrificed their lives to neutralized terrorist Zulkifli Abdhir five years ago on January 25, 2015.

“Their supreme sacrifice will never be forgotten. Today, we honor their heroism and patriotism with deep pride as our inspiration to continue on our sworn duty to protect our people from lawless violence, criminal acts and illegal drugs that destroy the lives and future of our younger generation,” the PNP said.

“To the families, friends, and relatives of SAF 44, we share with you the grief of losing beloved ones but their lives will always be remembered as pillars and heroes of this 205,000-strong and growing PNP family,” it added.
