NPA mounts armed actions in 4 provinces
Units of the New People’s Army (NPA) in four provinces mounted a series of tactical offensives as part of efforts to frustrate the military operations being carried out by the US-Marcos terrorist regime.
In Masbate, Red fighters seized a rifle from military agents in Sitio Pondol at the border of barangays San Carlos and Matagbac in Milagros on April 14. The agents were engaged in aggressive actions against people of the second district of province. One of the agents was killed while two others were injured.
According to reports by Red fighters, the agents fought back as they were being disarmed, and even used their civilian companions as shield. As a result, the fighters moved quickly to help civilians, especially a child, to remove them from the dangerous situation.
In Negros Oriental, three short weapons were confiscated by the NPA from Jorge Javier, an intelligence agent of the 62nd IB, in a partisan operation last April 16 in Sitio Guibawan, Barangay Bucalan, Canlaon City, Negros Oriental. Javier was killed in the said operation.
In Camarines Sur, a soldier was killed in the NPA’s sniping operation against the detachment 81st IB in Barangay Tible, Lupi, Camarines Sur. The operation was carried out from 200 meters on March 30 at ten o’clock in the morning.
In Camarines Norte, the NPA fired at the detachment of the 9th IB in Sitio Cupido, Barangay Malaya, Labo on April 1. A soldier was killed in the operation.
