THE NEW PEOPLE’S Army (NPA)-Bukidnon mounted successive military offensives against abusive soldiers in the province from May 5-14. Four fascist soldiers were killed while two others were wounded.

On May 11, Red fighters sniped at elements of the 60th IB at 56th IB at Sitio Tapayanon, Barangay Mandahikan, Cabanglasan. Their presence in the barrio has long been causing grave hardships and abuses against the masses. Two soldiers were killed in the offensive.

Meanwhile, Red fighters also ambushed two intelligence agents of the 8th IB in separate incidents. On May 10, Red fighters ambushed a CAFGU element in Barangay Busdi, Malaybalay City. The said element served as guide of the 8th IB in its combat operations.

On May 13, another intelligence agent was killed in Barangay Indalasa, Cabanglasan. The said agent was behind the forced “surrender” of Lumad Talaandigs and the killing of two members of peasant group Ogyon in Cabanglasan.

A unit of the NPA-Bukidnon also harassed a detachment of the CAA in Barangay Bolunay, Impasug-ong on May 14. The same detachment was also harassed by the NPA on May 5.

Units of the NPA in the Panay island also harassed a military detachment in Barangay Anhawan, Janiuay, Iloilo on May 12 and another CAFGU detachment in Barangay Barasan, Igbaras in the same province on May 3.
