President Rodrigo Duterte has announced that he recently ordered the deployment of all military divisions to Jolo, Sulu to help secure peace and order in the provinces and nearby places.

"We visited wake up in Cauayan. I am with the Secretary (Delfin) Lorenzana and Secretary (Eduardo) Año. I talked with them and complained about why so many of my soldiers in Jolo were dying, "Duterte said on Tuesday night during his visit to Camp Rajah Sikatuna, Carmen, Bohol.

"On December 1, I told Secretary Lorenzana, & # 39; I want one division there & # 39; so I will give you Glock and three magazines, "he added.

In a later interview with the media after the inauguration of the new Bohol-Panglao International Airport, Duterte explained that the recent attack from the Abu Sayyaf group had pushed his order to deploy more troops on Jolo.

"On Jolo, I also expressed my disappointment about losing that is why I went to Cauayan to visit the five soldiers who were killed in Sulu and I went to Zamboanga last night to sympathize with the troops there. Twenty-five soldiers were injured and I gave them medals, "said Duterte.

"There will be a size distribution [deployment there]"Not only the company, not only the battalion, not only the regiment, but I will put the entire division there," he said. / jpv
