Lies and fake news cannot hide the truth behind DSB affair


Compelled by the unobtainable deadline set forth by the US-Marcos regime to destroy the revolutionary movement within this year, #DiMasaligan79IB resorted to all kinds of dirty tricks to project an image of battlefield victories.

A glaring example is the recent incident in Sitio Humayan, Barangay Pinowayan, Don Salvador Benedicto, Negros Occidental involving the alleged arrest of two minors, portrayed in the media by #DiMasaligan79IB as “child warriors,” and the subsequent display of assorted firearms allegedly seized from the two.

The Alforque siblings (Adonis, 16 and Jonidel, 17) are not members of the NPA. They are civilians residing in the area victimized by the vicious campaign of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). All units of the Roselyn Jean Pelle Command of the New People’s Army Northern Negros Front (RJPC-NPA) strictly comply to the age requirement stipulated in the Basic Rules of the NPA and the memorandum of the Executive Committee of the Party’s Central Committee mandating 18 years old as the minimum age of all Red fighters.

The claim of #DiMasaligan79IB that the Alforques were apprehended in an NPA encampment is total garbage. Should that be the case, a firefight would be inevitable. It makes no sense and defies logic that supposed Red fighters simply withdrew and left all their firearms to the Alforques. Thus, the firearms attributed to them are clearly planted, manufactured or planted.

Besides, the terrain and physical location of the said area is not favorable to set up such an encampment. No unit of the RJPC-NPA is operating in the area.

Unable to sustain such blatant lies to the critical public, even #DiMasaligan79IB commander LTC. Arnel Caloagan backtracked from the official narrative of the incident. In a radio interview, he floated the idea of the presence of a new armed group in DSB.###
