“We condemn in the strongest possible terms last night’s grenade attacks and explosion incidents in Cotabato and Maguindanao which left scores wounded, including soldiers who were conducting patrols,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said Monday.
Panelo called on the public to remain vigilant and report suspicious behavior and situations.
“We call on everyone to stay and remain vigilant and report suspicious personalities and unattended items,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Palace official vowed that the government will bring the perpetrators to justice.
“Any attempt to sow fear, hatred, and violence is doomed to fail. We will pursue the perpetrators and will harness all our might to crush all evil forces or enemies of the state, as well as their supporters,” he said, adding that authorities are now investigating the matter.
