Hina-hunting ngayon ng Elite Forces ng Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) ang teroristang si Abdul Basit Usman at ang mga kasabwat niya sa Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters.

Ayon kay military spokesman Brigadier General Joselito Kakilalal, “The fleeing terrorists and their BIFF coddlers have splintered into small groups but our combat boots on ground quickly adapted to their escape and evasion tactics by inserting our elite forces to relentlessly hunt them.”

“We will not let them rest until they are cornered and captured. Fresh troops will be coming in from time to time to keep them away from seeking sanctuary in civilian communities. While close-quarter battles continue, our infantry were sealing possible escape routes of the enemy as our elite forces are penetrating the target areas,” the military spokesperson said.

The elite team, consisting of skilled close-quarter combatants and snipers, are still in pursuit of the Usman, a known bomb specialist, and foreign terrorist suspects being harboured by the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF).
