Suicide bombing in Sulu foiled by the AFP

JOLO, Sulu – Three suspected suicide bombers were neutralized by the AFP in Sitio Itawon, Brgy. Kan Islam, Indanan, Sulu at 4:50pm today (Nov 5, 2019). The terrorists, composed of two foreign terrorists and one local ASG member, were about to carry-out their suicide bombing mission in Metro Jolo when they were neutralized by AFP during the implementation of a military operation intended to apprehend foreign terrorists in Sulu.

Recovered from the terrorists were one Cal.45 pistol with ammunition, one hand grenade, and two vests with explosives and triggering devices identical to the vest used by the suicide bombers during the two IED attacks in Brgy Tanjung, Indanan, Sulu on June 28 and on September 8 of this year.

“...the hostile plan of the terrorists in Sulu could have caused tremendous casualties and could have tarnished the image of this country if not immediately acted upon by our soldiers. Hence, I commend them for such patriotic act”.

"...the AFP in Sulu will continue to hunt down all the remaining ASG members in Sulu. Hence, I urge them to surrender and live a normal life instead of being hunt down as a fleeing criminals and disgrace to the peace-loving Tausug Community”
