The identities of the rebel fatalities were not available as of posting time, said Lt. Gen. Ricardo Rainier Cruz III, commander of the Armed Forces Eastern Mindanao Command.
Recovered from the area were four assault rifles, improvised explosive devices, radios, medical kit, backpacks and subversive documents. There were no reported government casualties.
