Units of the New People’s Army (NPA) mounted two armed actions in Sallapadan, Abra during the last week of June. The attack was carried out against the 24th and 102nd IB troops operating in the said town.

Red fighters first attacked the 24th IB unit operating at Sitio Mangmangga, Barangay Naguilian on June 26. One soldier was killed in the offensive. This was followed by the NPA-Abra’s harassment operation against 102nd IB troops in Barangay Bazar on June 28. Two soldiers were injured in the offensive.

In Negros Occidental, the NPA-South Central Negros on June 14 demobilized two backhoes at Sitio Bulod, Barangay Carabalan, Himamaylan City. The backhoes were being used in the construction of the Himamaylan-Tayasan Road that will pave the way for the entry of large mining companies into the mountains of Cansermon, Tahod-Ilahas, Cambantog and nearby areas.

The two backhoes owned by the ESJ construction firm of the Javelosas and the Gensulins cost ₱7.5 million. No company workers were harmed in this operation.
