Barely a month after the tragic Mamasapano clash, Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin lauded the Moro Islamic Liberation Front for helping the military pinpoint the turfs of the  Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF).

“This is one example of cooperation between the AFP (Armed Forces of the Philippines) and the MILF and it is against the BIFF. I think they have been successful in driving away the BIFF,” he said.

AFP Chief of Staff General Gregorio Pio Catapang has ordered an all-out offensive against the BIFF, a breakaway group of the MILF, to halt the displacement of residents in North Cotabato and Maguindanao.

While Gazmin cannot how long the MILF will help the government pursue lawless elements, he said it will be a “dream come true” if the group becomes a permanent asset of the military.

MILF chief negotiator Mohagher Iqbal said there has been a directive from the group’s leadership for MILF fighters to step aside and not get in the way of the fighting between government forces and the BIFF.
