Ten combatants of the Daesh-inspired Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) were killed in ongoing clashes with military troops in Datu Salibo, Maguindanao, the Army here said Thursday.

“Military pursuit operations are ongoing but locals confirmed that the retreating BIFF radicals have carted away their dead comrades,” Lt. Col. Anhouvic Atilano, the Army’s 6th Infantry Division (6ID) spokesperson, told reporters here.

Atilano said the clashes also left two soldiers killed and 13 other troopers of the Army’s 57th Infantry Battalion (57IB) wounded.

Several locals have offered information to pinpoint where some of the BIFF extremists were hurriedly buried near the encounter area, he added.
