In a more than one hour intense gunfight between the government troops and the ASG, the enemy ran away leaving one of their dead comrades in the area. 

The ASG suffered heavy looses on their side as evidence by thick blood left out by their wounded in the battle area. 

The troops had also recovered some enemy equipment and apparatus in battle scene.

"Hindi nang-iiwan ng patay ang mga Abu Sayyaf, at sa tagal nating karanasan sa pakikipaglaban sa kanila, mataas ang antas ng kanilang pagiging mandirigma at pilit nilang dinadala ang kanilang kasamahang nasawi sa laban, Lt. Col Guinolbay said in a statement. 

The troop continues to hunt down remaining ASG members in the southern part of the country to provide peace in the community. 

The support and the cooperation of civilians in the community are the key to achieving lasting peace and order in Sulu.
