LANAO DEL NORTE, PHILIPPINES – Vice President Sara Duterte-Carpio visited Munai, Lanao del Norte, to pay her respects to the six soldiers who were killed in a recent military operation against the Dawlah Islamiyah terrorist group.

The Vice President joined hundreds of mourners, including military officials and families of the fallen soldiers, in a solemn ceremony held at the Municipal Hall. 

During her speech, she expressed her deepest condolences and vowed that the government would provide all necessary assistance to the bereaved families.

“Ang kanilang kabayanihan ay kapalit ng kaligtasan ng mga Pilipino hindi lang sa Mindanao kundi sa buong Pilipinas” Duterte said. 

“Hindi sapat ang mga salita upang mabigyan natin ng tunay at makahulugang parangal ang anim na mga sundalo na nasawi sa pakikipaglaban sa teroristang Maute Group sa Munai, Lanao del Norte noong ika-18 ng Pebrero.” She added.

The Vice President also commended the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) for their successful operation against Dawlah Islamiyah, which resulted in the neutralization of several key members of the terrorist group. 

However, she acknowledged the challenges and risks involved in such operations and emphasized the importance of providing adequate support to the troops.

“Bilang mga Pilipino, sana ay magkaisa tayo makiramay sa mga naulila at supilin ang kalaban ng bayan.” Duterte acclaimed.

The Vice President’s visit to Lanao del Norte comes amid ongoing concerns about the security situation in Mindanao. 

The region has long been plagued by terrorism and violence, and the recent clashes with Dawlah Islamiyah have highlighted the continuing threat posed by extremist groups.
