Prompt Report of Residents in Masbate, Preempts Another CTG's Terror Act



CAMP ELIAS ANGELES, Pili, Camarines Sur-Another armed clash ensued between the government troops and the Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) in Barangay Matagbac, Milagros, Masbate at 6 o’clock in the morning, Thursday, July 9.

Elements of 2nd Infantry Battalion (2IB) were conducting security operations in response to a report about the presence of CTG in the area when they encountered at least ten communist NPA terrorists (CNTs) led by alias Kiko/Pay, leader of Platoon 2, Larangan 1, Komiteng Probinsya 4 of Bicol Regional Party Committee (BRPC).

Firefight lasted for two minutes before the enemies scurried towards different directions.

Recovered from the encounter site are two generators, three engines for motorized banca, solar panel, food supplies and terrorist propaganda materials.

JTF Bicolandia under MGEN HENRY A ROBINSON JR PA once again recognized the support of the local populace in the anti-insurgency campaign of the government.

Prompt reports like these, he said, preempt any unlawful activities that the CTG is planning to carry out.

“Alam na ng lahat ang totoong motibo ng mga komunistang terorista kaya hindi na sila nagdadalawang isip na isumbong sa Local Government Authority at uniformed personnel ang kanilang presensya, panlilinlang, at pananakot. The Bicolanos are one with us in this fight against insurgency. Wala nang makukuhang suporta sa mga komunidad ang CTG because the people are yearning for genuine peace,”MGen Robinson said.

Thus, MGen Robinson once again called on the NPA to abandon the armed struggle because their space is now getting smaller;

there is a new and better life awaits for them outside the armed movement.
