BIFF wants rematch with SAF troopers

Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters will not return the firearms they got from Special Action Force troopers after the bloody Mamasapano encounter turned ‘massacre’, not after a ‘rematch’. BIFF claimed they only got 10 firearms out of 63 accounted lost long and short firearms.

BIFF spokesman Abu Misry Mama, speaking to DZMM radio, said it is like a boxing match, they knocked down their opponent and they will not return the firearms they got until a rematch.

Philippine National Police accounted over PhP27 million worth of firearms and special tactical equipment were lost. 52 long firearms including assault and sniper rifles, 11 9mm pistol, over a hundred grenades, 17 night vision goggles, four binoculars, 10 GPS tracker and a forward-looking infrared equipment were among the said lost PNP-SAF properties.

Along with PNP-SAF properteies, personal belongings of 44 SAF troopers were also looted.
