Body

Armed conflict between the Armed Forces of the Philippines and non-state armed actors erupts along the borders of Municipality of Maguing and Poona Bayabao, Lanao del Sur. Aerial bombing has displaced 2,786 families or about 14,000 individuals from 15 Barangays or villages. Most affected are the areas of Balintao, Bubong Bayabao, Camalig, Kianodan, Pilimoknan, Bubong Maguing and Rungayan of Maguing Municipality.

Urgent needs of displaced families are food, hygiene kits, emergency shelter, and other basic household items. The local government units and Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao have provided partial assistance.
