The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has not wavered in its war against the terrorist group Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) despite the pandemic brought about by the coronavirus or COVID-19.

Reports from the WestMinCom said four more ASG members surrendered to the military in Sulu on November 21, 2020.

According to WestMinCom Commander Lt. Gen. Corleto Vinluan, Jr., Radzmel Said, a.k.a.

“A.k.a. Amil is the nephew of Hatib Majid, a.k.a. Amah Patit and the brother of two ASG active members Appal and Raup Said while Alli is the grandson of senior leader Radullan Sahiron,” Lt. Gen. Vinluan, Jr. stated.

“Alli served as the M60 machine gunner of his grandfather,” Lt. Gen. Vinluan, Jr. added.

It was found out during the debriefing that the group greatly weakened by the neutralization of their leaders and their comrades.

“We are having hard times and we are worn out because of hunger and lack of support,” they said in the local language.

The ASG members as a gesture of sincerity, handed over their firearms which include three M1 Garand rifles with clip, each loaded with eight rounds of ammunition; and one M16 rifle with one short magazine loaded with ten rounds of 5.56 ammunition.

“The successful surrender was made possible through the relentless mass base operations of our soldiers and intelligence operatives,” said Lt. Col. Rafael Caido, Acting Commander of the 6th Special Forces Battalion.
