AGAINST BIFF

INCIDENT BACKGROUND

After the Special Action Force (SAF) Police operation on 25 January in Mamasapanao, Maguindanao that resulted in SAF and Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) deaths, a chain of events led to a splinter group, the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) relocation to specific populated areas that caused the local population to flee in fear of a conflict. Firefights between the MILF and BIFF occurred during the second and third weeks of February.

On 25 February 2015, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) declared an all-out offensive against the BIFF two weeks after the intense fighting between the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and BIFF in Pagalungan municipality, Maguindanao province. The all-out offensive is declared in areas within the so-called “SPMS Box” (Salibo, Pagatin, Mamasapano, Shariff Aguak) in Maguindanao, areas that are known to have presence of the BIFF. Following this declaration, the provincial government of Maguindanao, declared a state of calamity in 12 municipalities, Shariff Saydona Mustapha, Datu Saudi Ampatuan, Shariff Aguak Mamasapano, Datu Salibo, Datu Unsay, Rajah Buayan, Datu Hoffer, Pagalungan, Datu Montawal, Datu Piang and Sultan sa Barungis. A series of clashes ensued as the AFP pursue the BIFF in locations where they have been identified.

CURRENT SITUATION

Over 24,714 families (123,537 persons) were displaced in 15 municipalities of Maguindanao. This is the biggest displacement since the 2008 MOA-AD debacle. The number of displaced persons reported by the government includes those IDPs who have sought refuge with host families. However, the figure of home-based IDPs is only from 6 out of 15 municipalities. There are at least 75 reported evacuation sites as of this report. Some families have been displaced for more than a month now without adequate humanitarian assistance. Distribution of food packages, some health and education support are part of the coordinated assistance that is being provided by the Regional ARMM authorities. The conduct of psychosocial activities and a small amount of non-food items have been distributed by NGOs, ICRC and UN organizations to targeted populations.

According to reports, people are fleeing because of fear of being hit during AFP ground operations and air strikes. Some IDPs are having difficulty finding refuge in host barangays if they are perceived to have affiliation with the BIFF. Three weeks into the offensives, there is no clear and consistent information provided to IDPs as to what areas are safe to move to or return to collect belongings and food, including accessing their livelihood which is essential for their survival. March through April is the harvest season in Maguindanao.

There is a growing concern over the duration and scope of the ongoing military offensives, causing anxiety, distress, exhaustion and confusion amongst the IDPs. The AFP is present in communities, in houses, madrasahs and other government structures such as schools, and barangay halls including in some distribution sites even after the fighting has transferred to other areas. There are identified ‘no go areas’ restricting movements of civilians. In Barangay Penditen, Datu Salibo, 6 men were held by military from morning until late afternoon. There are reports of strafing or indiscriminate firing in some areas where people try to return to their houses/farms and persons detained as suspected BIFF members, including a school teacher.

IDPs are highly mobile depending on where they can have access to food and basic services and where they feel safe.

Government authorities are trying their best to cope with the displaced population but they are overwhelmed by the large numbers. Out of 75 identified ECs across 15 municipalities, only 1 EC have a CCCM set up. No systematic registration system of IDPs has been put in place; therefore there is little disaggregated data and identification of vulnerable persons with specific needs amongst the population. The earliest disaggregated data will be available is next week based on Disaster Assistance and Family Access Cards (DAFAC) which DSWD started to distribute. The large majority of the IDPs are women, children and older persons; including 2,288 pregnant women. A substantial number of female headed households are also evident as those are wives of MILF fighters who had to leave their communities to give way to the government’s law enforcement operations. There is huge lack of data on IDPs that are staying with host families. With entire barangays evacuated for fear of being caught up in the AFP operation, families have no access to their livelihoods and they are tormented by the high possibility of looting and destruction and burning of their houses and personal goods left behind including most of their farm animals.

All the IDPs due to MILF and BIFF encounter in Datu Montawal, Pagalungan, Pikit and Sultan sa Barongis have returned soon after the MILF and BIFF clashes stopped in these barangays (18 March 2015).

UNGPID Principle 24. All humanitarian assistance shall be carried out in accordance with the principles of humanity and impartiality and without d iscrimination. Humanitarian assistance to internally displaced persons shall not be diverted, in particular for political or military reasons.

UNGPID Principle 25.

The primary duty and responsibility for providing humanitarian assistance to internally displaced persons lies with national authorities. International

humanitarian organizations and other appropriate actors have the right to offer their services in support of the internally displaced.

 

Food and Nutrition

IDPs are dependent on food assistance provided by the government and host communities. However food remains inadequate. There are IDPs who were not able to avail of food assistance including IDPs who are living with host families.

Food provision by the government is only good for 2 days.

ARMM HEART distributed at least 14,515 food packs and served 9,434 families.

Set up communal feeding centers in ECs

Food assistance provided to IDPs who have returned by LGU of Pagalungan, ARMM HEART, DSWD XII, Provincial Government of Maguindanao, ICRC, Tawasul, Board Member Angas and Paglas and Delta Cong. Mangudadatu.

their anticipated income animals and livestock.

IDP families also sold their farm

In Pikit, returning IDPs were provided food packs by DSWD XII.

Livelihood has been disrupted. Some IDPs were forced to sell their farm animals at a lower price. Food ration is limited such that each family receives the same amount of food ration regardless of the size of the family.

Host barangays are now starting to complain. They are not displaced, yet their livelihood activities were also affected by the “no go policy”. (i.e. barangay butilen, the barangay officials raised this concern given that most of their contituents are fishermen.)

Most IDPs received food assistance only once from ARMM Heart. Food packs provided to them last week were already consumed and they are now having difficulty in finding food and other daily needs.

Non-food items

IDPs are in dire need of the following non-food items:

   

Tarpaulins

Blankets

Mosquito nets

Hygiene kits

Kitchen utensils

Water and Sanitation

 

Safe drinking water remain scarce. IDPs are exposed to risk when fetching water. IDPs are forced to use non-drinking water for cooking. Not all IDPs are able to buy drinking water at P5/galloon. The lack of safe drinking water is a potential source of water borne diseases especially among persons with specific needs. Most of the IDPs are using level 1 water system for drinking, while others dug well and use irrigation water for bathing and washing.

In Sitio Kapok, Barangay Kuloy evacuation center, Sharif Aguak municipality, LGU provided 10 emergency hand pumps (PVC pipes) and 10 latrines.

Bathing and washing areas as well as separate latrines with functional locks should be established in all evacuation centers.

Single drop constructed 4 toilet rooms at old market previously occupied by IDPs in Pagalungan.

Recommend putting up latrine in well-lit and designated spaces will reduce strain and hassle for women and children to attend to their daily needs.

Available latrines are being shared by at least 300 families

per latrine. IDPs are forced to defecate on open field and irrigation systems which will most likely affect the health of IDPs.

   

In Mamasapano, there is only 1 latrine for more than 1,000 IDP families.

In upper sampao Around 107 families are using one hand pump located at least 200-300 meters away from their makeshift tents. (

There are available comfort rooms but there no water supply (Katibpuan EC)

Health

There is a need for culturally adaptable psycho-social intervention for distressed families specially the children. Government and humanitarian effort to provide psychosocial activities is not sufficient.

IPHO established medical stations in various ECs and deployed medical personnel.

Establish team to monitor and report on health status of IDPs.

Medical mission by Plan International and Provincial Health Unit (Maguindanao) to IDPs who have returned in Pagalungan.

Psychosocial activities conducted by Plan International, CFSI and Mindanao Tulong Bakwit to IDPs in Pagalungan who have already returned.

children.

There is no reported outbreak of severe diseases yet. However, there are reported cases of coughs cold, fever, skin diseases, gastric pain and diarrhea.

Establishment of women friendly space where mothers can breast feed their children.

RHU has limited supplies of medicines and medical assistance. There are medical missions being conducted but is not regular. There is no proper support given to pregnant and lactating women.

Recommend medical mission specially intended for pregnant women, nursing mothers and elderly.

There is no available information on the persons with special needs in other areas. However the LGU said that deploying health personnel would be helpful so that IDPs know where to go in case of emergency. Also conduct of basic health and sanitation sessions is a need.

 

UNGPID Principle 19. All wounded and sick internally displaced persons as well as those with disabilities shall receive to the fullest extent practicable and with the least possible delay, the medical care and attention they require, without distinction on any grounds other than medical ones. When necessary, internally displaced persons shall have access to psychological and social services. Special attention should be paid to the health needs of women, including access to female health care providers and services, such as reproductive health care, as well as appropriate counselling for victims of sexual and other abuses.

Education

Classes are affected in 42 public schools with approximately 18,819 students. Classes have suspended in affected areas. Some students lost their school materials during the time that they hurriedly left their homes.

 

Lobby with DepEd that IDP children will be accommodated in available schools in host communities.

Students are anxious that they cannot graduate and have to repeat their grade level in the next school year.

UNGPID Principle 23.

Every human being has the right to education. To give effect to this right for internally displaced persons, the authorities concerned shall ensure that such

persons, in particular displaced children, receive education which shall be free and compulsory at the primary level. Education should respect their cultural identity, language and

religion. Special efforts should be made to ensure the full and equal participation of women and girls in educational programmes. Education and training facilities shall be made available to internally displaced persons, in particular adolescents and women, whether or not living in camps, as soon as conditions permit.

Ra 7610 22 (c) Delivery of basic social services such as education, primary health and emergency relief services shall be kept unhampered.

 

Access to information

There are IDPs camps or evacuation centers who were not included list by government agencies such as in Barangay Libutan, Mamasapano. As a result they were unable to receive food assistance. There might be similar cases in other affected areas including IDPs living in host families.

Pikit and Pagalungan municipalities is maximizing DAFAC in gathering disaggregated data on sex and gender.

Recommend an information caravan type of activity even once a week will help IDPs share their concerns and hear answers to their questions.

IDPs do not receive any information as to what areas are already safe to return.

Limited assistance were provided due to limited information coming out on the status of the IDPs. ARMM-HEART reported at least 73 ECs. There is also a growing concern on the veracity of the data coming out and most humanitarian agencies relies on secondary data.

No available disaggregated data on sex and age of the IDPs.

There is limited information on the frequency and duration of humanitarian assistance provided.

The IDPs are uncertain of the duration of the displacement, they lack access to information corresponding to their situation which puts them in a lot of distress. Their only source of information are the barangay officials.

Humanitarian agencies also have difficulty monitoring the location and condition of the IDPs. Currently the

humanitarian agencies rely on government data on the number of displaced population. However, after several visits revealed a lot more complication of the situation. As mentioned, the homebased IDPs are not included in the lists, there are some but not all are reported and they are not included in the assistance provided. IDPs are highly mobile depending on where they can have access to food and basic services for survival. The security issues aggravated the situation.

   

UNGPID Principle 7: If displacement occurs in situations other than during the emergency stages of armed conflicts and disasters, the following guarantees shall be complied with: (a) A specific decision shall be taken by a State authority empowered by law to order such measures; (b) Adequate measures shall be taken to guarantee to those to be displaced full information on the reasons and procedures for their displacement and, where applicable, on compensation and relocation; (c) The free and informed consent of those to be displaced shall be sought.

ARMM-HEART and DOH provided psychosocial activities for the children staying in the covered court of Datu Saudi Amaptuan.

Cases of mothers and children in need of assistance and protection were referred to UNICEF and UNFPA through Nutrition and Health Clusters.

 

There were six mothers who just recently gave birth prior to displacement in Mahad EC, Barangay Madia, Datu Saudi Ampatuan. One of them had a miscarriage. In Mahad EC, Brgy Dapiawan of the same municipality two mothers are now on full term while one mother in Brgy Pusao, Shariff Saydona municipality, a baby died. Several babies and very young children needing immediate attention including children with severe malnutrition. There were also several pregnant women staying in the ECs.
