No one was harmed in the government side but the casualty in the side of the enemies is still undetermined.

Recovered from the encounter site were two anti-personnel mines, food stuffs and personal belongings.

Lt. Col. Eric Culvera, Battalion Commander of 31IB condemned the CTG for using anti-personnel mines in spite of their knowledge about the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect of Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL) which strictly prohibits it.

Joint Task Force Bicolandia (JTFB) under MGEN FERNANDO T TRINIDAD AFP directed the troops to tighten the security measures in the area to ensure that the CTGs will not be able to harm civilians and stop their illegal activities.

It can be recalled that just last week, an armed encounter between government troops and CTGs broke out at Baao town in Camarines Sur province where high powered firearms and explosives were recovered.

Gen. Trinidad once again expressed his gratitude for the cooperation of the residents and underscored that continuous military operations and public’s utmost support will be very instrumental in the all-out campaign to end the insurgency problem in the country.

Nevertheless, JTFB also reiterated its call for the CTGs to abandon the armed movement and its useless cause and live a peaceful life with their loved ones.

Furthermore, Gen. Trinidad immediately directed the troops to do continuous intensified military operations in the area.

 

He expressed his gratitude to the members of the CTG who surrendered and formally decided to partake in ending the futile insurgency.
