Malacañang denounced the firefight that took place in Patikul town, Sulu that left 11 soldiers dead as “barbaric” and “deliberate acts of cruelty.”

Fourteen Philippine Army troops were wounded in an attack by members of the Abu Sayyaf group Friday.

“No rhyme nor reason can ever be ascribed to such an affront to – and outrage upon – a person’s dignity. They are not only anti-democratic, but anti-human as well,” said Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo.

“Given that these felonies were consummated while the country is in a public health emergency where our people are on edge fighting the global pandemic, they could not have committed far worse crimes than what they did,” he also said.

In a statement, Panelo expressed sympathy to the families of the fallen soldiers and vowed to run after those behind the “lawless and barbaric acts of violence.

“Law and justice dictate that this impunity must be put to an end,” he concluded.
