Major Gen. Raul Del Rosario, commander of Armed Forces of the Philippinesâ€™ (AFP) Central Command (CentCom), assured Gov. Edgar Chatto of his support in the local governmentâ€™s crackdown on criminality and drug activities.
Del Rosario who was a guest during the HEAT-IT Caravan in Maribojoc on Tuesday said that CentCom forces which oversee security operations in Visayas will extend aid in efforts to make Bohol drug-free.
The military has been supporting the Philippine National Police in its law enforcement duties as part of the national governmentâ€™s blueprint in eradicating narcotics trade.
In August, President Rodrigo Duterte personally asked the Cebu-based CentCom for cooperation in his administrationâ€™s ant-drug camp while vowing to extend all out support to the said AFP unit.
Del Rosario said that they will wage war against lawless elements who intend to disturb peace in Bohol which he lauded for being insurgency-free.
Meanwhile, the 302nd Infantry Brigade and 47th Infantry Battalion under CentCom also extended aid to Maribojoc residents during the HEAT-IT caravan through a medical mission. (Rey Tutas)
