The military operations against the Daesh-inspired bomb makers in Liguasan Marsh in Maguindanao have been coordinated with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), the government peace office said Monday.

The Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) said the surgical airstrikes and focused ground operations against the members of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) on Sunday, June 10, were successful.

The operations resulted in the eradication of identified improvised explosive device (EID) factories, it said.

“This operation was conducted with full coordination with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) Coordinating Committee on the Cessation of Hostilities (CCCH). The targeted areas were also confined to locations that are far from communities,” OPAPP said.

But thousands of residents near the area where the military operations have been ongoing have evacuated.
