More than 10 Dead RSA Sulu Sultanate and Malaysias War in Sabah

More than 10 unconfirmed dead  from Royal Sulu Army and confirmed 3 , including two police officers, were killed on Friday as Malaysian security forces reported in the clash between Malaysian security forces and the Royal Security group of the Sulu Sultanate crowned prince Rajah Mudah Agbimuddin Kiram this afternoon after the exchange of gunfire in Tanduo village.

Although officially unconfirmed, the reported casualty tally remains at more than ten Sulu gunmen dead and four injured including its leader Rajah Mudah Azzimudie Kiram with two commandos of the General Operations Force dead and four injured.

Three of the GOF injured men have been airlifted to Lahad Datu hospital and another to the Duchess of Kent hospital in Sandakan.

Conflicting reports emerged from the ground that the GOF forces were holding their fire and their positions while there has been no word from Azzumudie who last talked with a radio station in Manila at about 11am confirming the fire fight and the group's casualties.

It is believed that apart from machine gunfire, mortars were used during the encounter though details of how the clash began remains unclear.

However, it appears that the Malaysian security forces were fired upon first by the Sulu gunmen.

On standby are also the Army units who were seen at various strategic locations along the road to Sahabat Felda 17 where the Sulu group have been holed up.

Journalists have been told to wait at a neighboring Sahabat 16 resort for a police press conference scheduled for 5pm.

Dozens of followers of the little-known sultan of Sulu had been facing off with Malaysian police for the past two weeks, after they sailed from their homes in the southern Philippines to stake a territorial claim in North Borneo.

The 74-year-old Sultan Jamalul Kiram III says he is the head of the Islamic Sultanate of Sulu, which once controlled parts of Borneo including the site of the stand-off, as well as southern Philippine islands.

The owner of the house where the leader of the gunmen stayed during the 17-day stand-off was also killed but the nationality was not known, Philippine foreign department spokesman Raul Hernandez told reporters, citing a report by Malaysia's ambassador.

A third Malaysian police officer was wounded after the gunmen opened fire on their van, he said.

"The Malaysian ambassador said that the rest of the Kiram group in Lahad Datu escaped and ran toward the sea," he said, adding that 10 members of the group were arrested.

Malaysia's state news agency Bernama reported that two police commandos had been killed in a mortar shell explosion as they patrolled around the village where the gunmen were holed up.

It was unclear if they were the two police officers mentioned by Hernandez.

An official at the main hospital in the town of Lahad Datu near the site of the stand-off told AFP two police officers had been brought in with gunshot wounds but were in stable condition.

Hernandez said he could not confirm allegations by a Manila spokesman for the gunmen that Malaysian security forces had shot dead 10 members of the group and wounded four others.

Hernandez said Manila had formally demanded a full account of the security operation that ended the stand-off.

Kiram's spokesman Abraham Idjirani claimed Malaysian snipers had killed 10 of the sultan's men and wounded four other members of the group.

"I talked to (the group's leader) by telephone just now and asked him how many of his men were martyred. He told me 10. I enquired about the wounded and he said four," Idjirani told a news conference at Kiram's Manila home.

Idjirani insisted Kiram's men would continue to fight and would not leave Sabah.

The Islamic Sultanate of Sulu leased northern Borneo to Europeans in the 1870s.

While the sultanate's authority gradually faded as Western colonial powers exerted their influence over the region, it continued to receive lease payments for Sabah.

The former British colony became part of the federation of Malaysia when it was formed in 1963.

Kiram and the other heirs of the sultan still receive nominal annual compensation from Malaysia in the equivalent of about $1,700.

Idjirani suggested last week that the men would stand down if the compensation were substantially raised.

    Sa opinion ko mali talaga ang ginawa ng RSA na pumunta sa Sabah. Pero hindi natin sila masisi kasi 2010 pa nag paparamdam sila sa pangulo. Pero pinag walang bahala lang ng pangulo.

    Nakakaasar lang sa pangulo na ito eh mag papa-televise pa at sasabihing wag "wag kaming sisihin kung may mangyari sa inyo diyan". Alam mo pangulo kahit sila ang mali mga Pilipino pa rin yan kaya wag mo tatalikuran hindi naman mga terorista ang mga yan. Pinag lalaban lang nila ang kanilang lupa katulad ng mga magsasaka sa Hacienda Luisita.

    Naging presidente ka pa man din pero 2010 nakiki usap sa iyo tungkol sa Sabah rineject mo lang. Tapos ngayon sasabihin mo sabotage at nag hahanap ka ng mga sangkot sa "sabotage" mo. Puro nalang sisi ginawa mo.

    Opinion ko lang to mga kababayaran. Respeto lang mga Yellow people.

    President Pnoy must protect the interest of the Sultan of Sulu.

    President Pnoy who are your advisers on Sabah issue?

    Ano ba - If Sabah belongs to the Sultanate of Sulu give it to them period.

    Common sense lang hindi ba - bakit nagbabayad ng rent ang Malaysia sa Sultanate of Sulu? Ergo sa Sultanate of Sulu ang Sabah.

    Kailan bang mayroon kang masters or doctorate degrees or President ka ng isang bansa para ma-discern mo kung sino ang may-ari ng Sabah?

    I agree hindi mananalo ang Pilipinas pag dating sa war assets pero mananalo ang mga sundalong pinoy kung tunay na lalaban.

    mga tausug, pagbayarain nyo ang malaysia ng danyos sa pag paslang ng mga kapatid nyo. Puro naman kayo muslim at magkadugo pa lahat kaya dapat ba na buhay ang ibabayad nila?

    Pwede naman cguro hindi buhay kundi pati ang teritoryo ng sarawak.

    Isipin nyo huwag kayong maghigante sa mga civilian kasi wala silang kasalanan. Duon kayo sa Gobyerno mag higante kasi sila ang gumagawa ng kasalanan.

    Ang masakit hindi mka backup ang mga ibang tausug kasi pinaharangan ni PNOY ang karagatan para walang maka back up habang e masacre ang mga tausug na nandun sa Lahad Datu. Gawain ba iyan ng matinong presidente?

    Eh kung ayaw nya tumulong eh di hayaan nya nalang ang mga kamag anakan ng sultan na epag higante ang kamatayan ng mga pamilya nila.. bakit haharangan nya ang karagatan duon... salbahe sya... kung ayaw nyang maki alam sa Sulu eh di huwag nya na rin harangan ang karagatan duon para makikialam ang pamilyang kiram... putrages talaga itong intsek na Benigno Aquino na ito mas lalo akong galit sa mga intsek ngayon...Hindi talaga pinoy ang puso nila.

    alam nyo guys this is a good drama.. kita nyo hindi galit ang malaysia sa Pilipinas kundi sa Sulu lang? maraming impact ang sitwayon na ito...

    First - hindi apektado ang ating relasyon sa malaysia samantalang nalaman ng buong mundo na rented lang pala ng malaysia ang Sabah.. first point yan

    Second.. magkaroon na ng dahila na e continue ang claim sa sabah kasi may new modern timeline na ang pilipinas na nag assert talaga ito para bawiin ang sabah

    3. kalmado pa rin ang sitwasyon between PH and malaysia while napahiya ang malaysia na pinapatay nila ang mga tauhan ng Rajah na siyang may ari ng sabah......

    4. Bigyan nalang natin ng recognition ang mga bayani ng sulu..........

    5.. Patuloy nyo ang pag kutya kay PNOY para ang malaysia ay hindi mag karoon ng conflict sa atin at mabawi natin ang sabah ng walang kasiraan ng relasyon between sa ating bansa at malaysia..

    After all sila silang mga muslim pa rin ang nag aaway....kung ang muslim ay maka dios hindi sila gahaman sa kayamanan gaya ng ginawa ng malaysia na papayag silang papatay at bahala na magutom ang pamilya ng Kiram basta sila busog......

    Britain is so silent right? Britain must be responsible for this war because they are the root of this conflict. If they listen to the United States of America not to include Sabah in Malaysian federation then there is no War. Or Sabah could be even Free.

    Ang issues ngayon as posted in http://bit.ly/ZfeJDI

    “But I thought people in the south of Philippines are usually dispensable,” I said, playing the devil's advocate. I'm also familiar with how (in general) some people in Manila perceive their fellow countrymen living down south.

    Ibig sabihin ng dispensable = NOT IMPORTANT (Not Important daw sa Philippines ang People from the Southern Philippines... kasi wala naman boses sa desisyon Making.. oo ng oo lang naman nakasanayan ng taga BISAYA at MINDANAO

    ......

    Eto pa

    Sabi ni PNOY

    “If we agree that the Sultan of Sulu owns Sabah, does that also mean that they own Sulu? If we (the sultanate) own Sulu, can we (the sultanate) suddenly say we are separate from the Philippines?” the president told reporters in an interview described as “free-wheeling.”

    So nalilito sya...


    Sinong may kasalanan?

    Kung naging Federal System ang Philippines walang dapat ika lito kasi sa Federal kahit pa mag form ka ng Ala United Nations na composed of Kingdom and Island State into 1 country no issue

    Pero sa systema ng Ating government ngayon an UNITARY at isang area lang ang may Boses which is Manila...

    Hindi nila pwede e recognize ang Sulu as a sultanate kasi labag sa UNITARY SYSTEM form of government

    Kaya nga nananawagan tayo for federal Government eh.. pero ayaw ng Manila kasi gusto nila UNITARY para sila lang ang may BOSES


    ===


    Napakasakit na malamang .... Dispensable pala ang mga Bisaya at Mindanaw.. Dispensable in other words.. NOT IMPORTANT... ano mga BISAYA at MINDANAO hindi TAO? MANILA LANG BA ANG TAO?
