Hi! I would like to request a comprehensive info on:

1. The total number of armed conflict (both vertical and horizontal) in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao categorized per provinces and municipalities if possible. The five provinces are Basilan, Tawi-Tawi, Sulu, Lanao del Sur, and Maguindanao. Since some details may be classified, you may omit the specifics. I am requesting primarily on the frequency (counts) of armed conflict per provinces and municipalities from 1970 to 2017.

I am doing a correlational study on the incidents of armed conflict and land disputes in ARMM. Thanks!
