A unit of the New People’s Army (NPA)-Central Negros (Leonardo Panaligan Command) surprised and harassed the resting soldiers of the 62nd IB at the fascist’s patrol base in Barangay Malangsa, Vallehermoso, Negros Oriental on May 24, at 9 p.m.

The unit’s report said the 62nd IB soldiers were not able to fire back and instead scampered after two minutes of gunfight with the Red fighters.

“This is the NPA’s response to the grievances and complaints of Central Negros people on the widespread militarization in the area,” said Ka JB Regalado, spokesperson of the NPA-Central Negros.

Ka JB further explained, this is also part of providing revolutionary justice to the many who have been murdered, illegally arrested, and whose human rights have been repeatedly violated by the 62nd IB. Among the crimes committed by the butcher unit was the killing of farmer Richard dela Peña on May 21 in Barangay Quintin Remo, Moises Padilla.

The NPA said the support and participation of the masses for their army is steadily growing amid the Marcos regime’s increasingly escalating fascist attacks.
