MAGUINDANAO --- Soldiers seized Thursday assault rifles, an anti-tank rocket and explosives scattered in an abandoned Dawlah Islamiya lair in Barangay kuloy in Shariff Aguak town.

The cache was found by servicemen of the Army’s 33rd Infantry Battalion in makeshift shelters of terrorists in Barangay Kuloy, where they also found a live mortar round that can be converted into a powerful IED.

The 33rd IB is one of the units of the Army’s 6th Infantry Division comprising the anti-terror Joint Task Force Central led by Major Gen. Diosdado Carreon.

Barangay Kuloy is near Shariff Saidona town, scene of fierce clashes last week between the Dawlah Islamiya and units of the Army’s 6th Infantry Division.

The hostilities resulted in the deaths of four members of the Dawlah Islamiya and the recovery by soldiers of more than a dozen firearms, 31 improvised explosive devices, some attached to booby traps laid along farm trails crisscrossing the lairs of terrorists who fled as gunfights ensued.
