Military Braces for Possible MILF Attacks

The military is bracing for possible attacks by about a thousand Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) rebels which started massing the other day in strategic areas in the neighboring towns of Pikit, North Cotabato and Pagalungan, Maguindanao, an Army spokesman said yesterday. Maj. Julieto Ando, spokesman of the Army’s 6th Infantry Division, said also spotted in Pikit were more than a hundred members of the Pentagon kidnapping-for-ransom gang and two smaller groups, led by Commanders Gary Dagandal and Rambo, both implicated in the Dec. 24 bombing in Maguindanao’s Datu Piang town, which left 18 people dead. Among those killed in the Datu Piang bombing was the town’s mayor, Datu Saudi Ampatuan, son of Maguindanao Gov. Datu Andal Ampatuan. Ando said the MILF rebels were first seen converging in Barangay Buliok in Pikit and in Kabasalan, a secluded district at the border of Pikit and Sultan sa Barongis, a known lair of the Pentagon gang and Moro guerrillas.
