NPA-Sultan Kudarat confiscates 4 firearms
Red fighters of the New People’s Army (NPA)-Sultan Kudarat disarmed Junior Martinez, a local despot and 57th IB agent, in Sityo Badiangan, Barangay Salangsang in Lebak, Sultan Kudarat on November 13, at 5 a.m. An M16 rifle, a shotgun, two pistols, a hand grenade, and a VHF radio were confiscated from him.
Martinez uses these weapons to terroriz the peasant masses in their area and grab their land. Martinez is supported by the 57th IB and actively colludes with soldiers.
On November 10, the NPA-Sultan Kudarat harassed the 37th IB detachment in Sityo Pangyen, Barangay Hinalaan, Kalamansig. The 37th IB soldiers are behind gambling, drinking and causing trouble in the village. They harass and coerce residents repeatedly to “surrender.” Residents welcomed the NPA offensive against soldiers causing troubles in the area.
In Quezon, NPA-Quezon destroyed and burned to two dump trucks used by the quarry company in Unisan town on November 8. This was done to warn companies involved in environmentally destructive projects.
