Breaking: Sibuco & Sirawai, Zamboanga Under Firefight After Abu Sayyaf Attacks 42IB


Former Interior Secretary Rafael Alunan revealed on his latest Facebook post about the breaking news in some parts of Zamboanga particularly in the areas of Sibuco and Sirawai (Dona Cecilia), which experienced a firefight between suspected Abu Sayyaf members and soldiers of the 42nd Infantry Batallion (42IB).


According to Alunan, independent sources confirmed that the Zamboanga peninsula particularly in the areas of Sibuco and Sirawai is reportedly experiencing some firefights.

The former senatorial candidate noted on his post that terrorists are foreseen to use the Ramadan to simultaneously attack various targets in Mindanao. Urban areas are favorite targets because urban warfare requires committing large numbers of security forces and assets.

Alunan suspects that the idea of the attackers in Mindanao is to stretch out and pin down our security forces to leave other areas vulnerable and exposed to attack. The AFP should activate more of its Reserves and CAFGU to take over garrison and static defense duties so that combat personnel can focus on their primary tasks.


A resident of Sirawai also confirmed that as of posting time, the firefight is still ongoing and the military have already dropped at least three bombs against ASG targets attacking the 42IB.

Here's the Complete Statement of Sir Raffy Alunan:
