Abu Sayyaf gunmen burned an unoccupied military outpost at Sitio Tubig Patong, Barangay Danag, Patikul, Sulu Monday morning.

A military report said that some 40 Abu Sayyaf militants under the groups of Habib Hajan Sawadjaan and Hairula Asbang set on fire the army detachment around 8 a.m.

The report said the detachment was razed in less than an hour.

It was learned that the detachment was temporarily abandoned by the Bravo Company of the Army’s 35th Infantry Battalion, 501st Brigade after soldiers joined the ongoing Focus Military Operation in the municipality of Patikul against ASG gunmen holding some hostages.

The detachment’s  foxholes were damaged. — Dan Toribio Jr.
