Presidential Adviser on Peace, Reconciliation and Unity Carlito G. Galvez has extended his deepest condolences to the families of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) members who were killed during the attack carried out by the ISIS-affiliated Turayfe-Dawla group in Maguindanao province.

In a statement Monday, October 7, Galvez vowed government’s assistance for the families of the MILF fighters.

“We will exert all efforts to make sure that justice will be served to the perpetrators of this dastardly act,” he said.

Galvez, a retired military general, said the national government recognizes the “gallantry” of the former MILF combatants who stood their ground against the radical group.

“For us, they are heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice so that their people can live in peace,” he said.

As the government sympathizes with the MILF, he called on the Filipinos to unite to address the roots of violent extremism, and bring enduring and long-lasting peace for the country.

Seven MILF members were killed in the firefight with the ISIS-linked terrorist group in Shariff Saydona Mustapha, Maguindanao Friday, October 4. #
