The New People’s Army (NPA) ambushed CAFGU elements in Barangay Manlut-od, Placer, Masbate on November 7. Two elements were killed and two short weapons were seized, with several magazines, ammunition and other military equipment.

The ambush adds to the more than 20 guerrilla actions mounted in the province by NPA units this year. According to the unit, the casualties suffered by the reactionary armed forces is almost equivalent to a platoon.

Meanwhile, the NPA-Central Negros mounted successive military actions against 62nd IB’s mercenary troops on November 12.

The first offensive was carried out around 5:32 p.m. against a military detachment in Barangay Budlasan, Canlaon City. On nightfall, the Red army fired at the 62nd IB soldiers at the gym of Barangay Trinidad National High School, Barangay Trinidad, Guihulngan City. A fascist was killed and two were injured in these armed actions.

“The military’s presence and encampment in schools and other public places is a clear violation of the rules of war and the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law,” said the NPA-Central Negros.

In Abra, the NPA unit fired at a column of the 54th IB and 102nd IBde on November 4 in Barangay Mogao, Licuan-Baay. Three fascist soldiers were killed. They were among the troops conducting focused military operations in the province in recent months.
