Joint Task Force Central (JTFC) has intensified the focused military operations at terrorists identified lair in So. Tatak, Bargy Tugal, Sultan Sa Barongis, Maguindanao at around 6 o’clock in the morning on February 2, 2019.

JTFC launched surgical air, artillery and ground operation to the identified and confirmed targets against the DAESH inspired terrorist group under Salahudin Hassan.

Initial result of the operation is the destruction of suspected 20-capacity bunkers and foxholes of the DAESH Inspired terrorist groups.

The successful operation is a result of positive information and support provided by the former members of BIFF who surrendered to “JTF Central.”

“We ease the fear of our people and assure them that safety procedures were undertaken and deliberately planned by JTFC giving due concern to the safety of the civilian populace”, Joint Task Force Central Commander Major General Cirilito E. Sobejana said.


“Appropriate coordination was also made with MILF CCCH and the targeted areas were confined to locations far from the local communities.”

“I am very determined to defeat these threat groups and prevent them from doing terroristic activities to bring about peace in Central Mindanao.” Major General Sobejana added. 6th Infantry Division
