Last December 2021, China had demanded that the Philippines remove the BRP Sierra Madre from the Ayungin Shoal. “On board indigenous boats Unaizah Mae 2 and 3, fresh supplies for the troops were brought to the Ayungin detachment. The Chinese coast guard had also blocked and fired water cannons at a previous resupply mission, thus prompting the government to call out China at the ASEAN-China special summit. As the mission team approached the shoal, they cheerfully waived to the LS 57 watch standers,” the WESCOM said. — DVM, GMA News. Aside from the fresh supplies, the WESCOM also fielded a new batch of troops that will guard the unique Ayungin detachment and maintain the country’s presence in the KIG or Spratly Islands.25%, 30.

Concerns were raised that China is harrassing the military’s RORE missions to Ayungin Shoal to starve the troops and force them out of the area. “WESCOM assures our people that our joint forces remain strong in performing our mandate in the entire WPS based on our established rules of engagements and with assertive but non-provocative posture in order to maintain regional peace and stability, and to protect what is rightfully ours,” it said. BRP Sierra Madre was deliberately ran aground on Ayungin Shoal in 1999 to serve as an outpost of the military as the government wanted to assert its sovereignty in the area amid China’s excessive claims in the Spratly Islands.37% for an average of 7.
