Renewed clashes between government forces and Daesh-inspired terrorists displaced hundreds of residents in several villages in Lanao del Sur as the army pressed on with its operations to root out militants.

Col. Romeo Brawner, spokesperson of the Task Force Ranao, said pursuit operations continue against combatants of a radical faction of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) and remnants of the clan-based Maute group.

Last week, military operations in Central Mindanao’s Liguasan Marsh delta left at least 20 militants dead including a Singaporean and four Indonesians.

Brawner said the operation in Lanao del Sur forms part of the continuing operations against the Maute and BIFF militants as fighting broke out last Sunday.
