CSAFP orders Army Brigade to reposition to Western Mindanao

CAMP AGUINALDO, Quezon City – General Gregorio Pio P. Catapang Jr. has ordered the reposition of the 501st Infantry (Valiant) Brigade and its attached units from Northern Luzon to Western Mindanao to further strengthen the nation’s security posture in the Zamboanga Peninsula and Sulu.

The 501st Brigade’s previous area of operations include the Provinces of Kalinga, Apayao, Mt. Province, Ifugao, Nueva Vizcaya and Benguet including Baguio. The AFP has already successfully turned-over the responsibility of addressing insurgency to these local governments of Northern Luzon. As a result of this, the AFP is exercising its flexibility by realigning our units so that we can focus our security operations in areas that are more affected by armed conflicts.

Two (2) Army Infantry Battalions are also set to move alongside the 501st Brigade. The 21st Infantry (Invincible) Battalion and the 41st Infantry (Partner for Peace) Battalion will be repositioned in the Zamboanga Peninsula while the 501st Brigade is set to establish its headquarters in Sulu.

This is a redeployment that is part of an ongoing plan which is anchored on our mandate to address internal and external security situations.   Our assurance is that we will all benefit from this move.
