Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief of Staff General Gilbert Gapay said the AFP is eyeing to eradicate local terrorist Abu Sayyaf Group this year.

During the Department of National Defense’s budget hearing, Deputy Speaker and Basilan Representative Mujiv Hataman asked the military for its timeline on ending the Abu Sayyaf and other lawless groups.

“As far as ‘yung Abu Sayyaf, sir, we are striving to really end it this year and the entire local terrorist group problem would be… by 2022 before the term of President Duterte ends. ‘Yun ang timeline ng Armed Forces of the Philippines,” Gapay answered.

“Right now our focus is the Abu Sayyaf Group operating in Basilan and Sulu. Ang target po namin diyan is we will endeavor to really degrade them significantly,” he added.
