NPA harasses AFP troops in Northern Samar; five soldiers confirmed killed and several wounded
Red fighters of the NPA-Rodante Urtal Command successfully harassed fascist troops of the US-Duterte regime last November 6 in Barangay Cag-amesarog, Lope de Vega, Northern Samar. Soldiers of the 43rd Infantry Battalion were on operations in three columns when the NPA launched the tactical offensive. Five fascist troops were killed and several others wounded, while a Red fighter suffered slight injuries. A helicopter ferried the enemy dead and wounded, and after the tactical offensive, more than 100 fascist troops combed the area in futile pursuit. The Rodante Urtal Command is issuing this statement in response to the various fake news peddled by the AFP to discredit the tactical offensive.
The NPA in Eastern Visayas is determined to carry out more tactical offensives against the burgeoning fascist dictatorship of the US-Duterte regime. The NPA is heeding the people’s outcry against the economic hardships and mass murder of peasants, national minorities and other rural and urban poor under the pro-imperialist, corrupt and strong-arm rule of Rodrigo Duterte. The NPA calls on the people to dare to struggle, dare to win, support the guerrilla offensives against the despicable and despotic regime!##
