Kasi may mga cartons doon marka pa (the Department of National Defense) ordnance. So bakit?... Di ko akalain na ganun karami ang bala. Saan nila nakuha?" he asked in his visit to Camp Quintin Merecido in Davao.

Pres. Duterte also noted that "We are winning the war, do not worry... Few more days and we will prevail in Marawi," he told the soldiers, many of whom had at one point been deployed to the war-torn city.


During the speech of the President which was aimed at boosting their morale, Pres. Duterte thanked the soldiers for their service to the country, and assured them "(he would) take care of (them)."

The President also stated that he had taken certain steps to ensure their welfare, for instance, he said their salary would have been doubled by January next year.

The former Mayor of Davao City also said that before he leaves office, he said the soldiers would also have the P50-billion trust fund for the education of their children.

"I will also make a hospital here. Same equipment. If you suffer a wound, sagot ng government. Kuha ako ng isang ward for sundalo at pulis," he said, noting that the troops were already better equipped in battle, thanks also to the China-donated weapons, which arrived on Wednesday.
