Edwin O. Fernandez

COTABATO CITY, July 24 (PNA) -- A night fun run organized by sports officials in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) helped raised funds for the region’s contingent to the "Batang Pinoy" sports event and highlighted mounting calls for an end to the Israeli offensive in Gaza. Close to 300 employees of the ARMM, including some officials, participated in Tuesday’s Ramadhan night fun run which has two categories – 2 kilometer run for females and 3 kilometer run for males.

“I want to express my sympathy with my Muslim brothers and sisters in Gaza and also support our athletes,” said Nash Camo, winner of the male category. Al-Trekee Dayan, ARMM Regional Sports Coordinating Office (RSCO) director, said they are trying to raise funds to support ARMM’s young athletes who will compete in at least four sporting events in this year’s Batang Pinoy, an annual sporting event organized by the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC). Dayan said the qualifying leg for Mindanao participants will be held on the second week of September in Pagadian City, Zamboanga del Sur.

He said ARMM’s contingent will compete in beach volleyball, volleyball, swimming and taekwondo. “These are sports where our athletes have demonstrated a comparative edge, especially during the recent Palarong Pambansa,” Dayan said. (PNA) CTB/NYP/EOF

Army braces for retaliatory attacks from BIFF which lost 17 men in clash

COTABATO CITY, July 22 (PNA) -- The military has established more checkpoints and prepared its military hardware as the Army is anticipating retaliations from Moro bandits after they suffered heavily in a fierce firefight Monday. Among the fatalities from the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) side was a ranking leader identified only as “Commander City Hunter.” The Army’s division commander, Major General Edmundo Pangilinan, said 17 BIFF members were killed in about five hours of firefight after they attempted to retake Barangay Ganta in Shariff Saydona, Maguindanao, the BIFF’s former main base seized by the Army in January.

He admitted one soldier was killed in the firefight that started after midnight Monday. Commander City Hunter, a foreign trained cleric, was a close aide of Ameril Umbra Kato, founding chair of the BIFF. Col. Dickson Hermoso, spokesman of the 6th Infantry Division, said also killed in the Army-BIFF encounters at Barangays Ganta and Damablas, in Datu Piang town, were four other bandits whom villagers identified as Driz Salik, Mashud Ali, Nur Hassan, and Mantawil Kaliga. Taking a cue from previous tactics of the BIFF, Hermoso has warned the public against diversionary attacks by the ragtag armed men.
