NPA-Negros fires at 2 military detachments
Red fighters of the New People’s Army (NPA) stealthily approached and opened fire on two military detachments in Negros last week.
On December 13, the NPA-Central Negros opened fire at the patrol base of the 62nd IB in Barangay Sandayao proper, Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental around 8:00 pm. Two 62nd IB troopers were wounded.
On December 11, the NPA-Southwest Negros fired at the detachment of the 15th IB in Sityo Pangi, Barangay Inayawan, Cauyan, Negros Occidental. The people’s army unit quietly approached the detachment to disrupt the resting soldiers.
These are part of an average of four monthly armed offensives by NPA units in the island of Negros in the past year. This is a clear affront to the 3rd ID’s statement that the people’s army is almost decimated from the island and the target of finally “crushing” the NPA is near completion.
