Major General Alex Rillera, commander of the 6th Infantry Division, confirmed that seven soldiers suffered injuries during the military operation.

"Aking binabati ang ating mga tropa sa 1BCT at iba pang mga operating units, bagaman at may pito tayong mga kasundaluhan na nasugatan sa labang ito, ating kinikilala ang kanilang kabayanihan sa pagtatanggol sa bayan," Rillera said.

"Isang napakalaking tagumpay ang ating nagawa sa pagbura ng BIFF-KF sa hanay ng mga teroristang pangkat," he added.
