Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin confirmed that there was coordination between the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the military before the military troops encounter with the Abu Sayyaf Group in Tipo-Tipo, Basilan on Saturday.

According to Gazmin, part of the formed mechanism is to coordinate with the MILF as the DND official insisted that there is no bad blood between the government and the MILF.

In line with this, DND Secretary Gazmin said that he will order probe if a leak of information happened regarding their operation in Tipo-Tipo, wherein 18 soldiers died and a dozen others were injured.

However, Gazmin added that it is too early to provide any conclusion on what really happened especially that the military operations against the ASG is ongoing.
