No casualties were reported from the ensuing gunbattle.

I guess this is the lesson learned in Marawi City. When they sent troops to arrest Hapilon ,the police and military sent a small arresting team. They were repulse because of the big turnout of terrorists who reinforced Hapilon. They underestimated the Maute terrorist strength then. The AFP now, make sure they send more than enough firepower , more armor and hundreds of troops to stopped any attempt to replicate any marawi type scenario. This is a good strategy. Brigade size quick reaction force.

Speaking of Brigade Size sir, 1BCT is in Maguindanao. I guess they are the one who mobilize during that firefight.
