AS OFFICIALS delivered words of sympathy to the families of those who died and those wounded in last Friday’s bombing at the headquarters of the 1st Brigade Combat Team in Indanan, Sulu, they also called on the public for calm, vigilance, and support as the government pursues its campaign against acts of terror. “The island province of Sulu has suffered enough. I therefore call on all Filipinos and people of Sulu to unite and help our security forces in our common goal: to stop this heinous ideology that is trying to take its root in the province of Sulu and other parts of Mindanao,” Presidential Peace Adviser Carlito G. Galvez Jr. said in a statement. Major General Cirilito E. Sobejana, who assumed as new commander of the Western Mindanao Command (WMC) last June 28, same day as the bomb attack, said in a separate statement: “The WMC will be relentless in its effort to bring long and lasting peace and progress in the Bangsamoro Region and the adjoining provinces that it covers.” Three soldiers died in the bombing and more than 10 others were wounded.
