Paquibato District – The 16th Infantry (Maglilingkod) Battalion, under the leadership of LTC JOEL G SALAGUINTO INF (GSC) PA, Commanding Officer, encountered an undetermined number of the Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) believed to be members of GF 55 at Sitio Kapehan, Brgy Malabog, Paquibato District, Davao City, on April 22, 2020.

A tip from a concerned citizen about a consistent presence of suspected armed group prompted the conduct of Focused Military Operation that resulted to an encounter against an undetermined number of CTG in the vicinity of Sitio Kapehan, Brgy Malabog, Paquibato District, Davao City. The troops had the opportunity to follow the tracks of the CTG and ensued a brief firefight. After a moment, as the blocking troops are occupying their position, an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) was detonated to dissuade the government troops from pursuing the terrorists. Fortunately, the device exploded prematurely and only inflicted minor injuries among the troops.

A military ambulance was immediately sent to evacuate the two (2) slightly wounded soldiers who are now recuperating in a hospital in Davao City and strict checkpoints were emplaced to intercept the possible escape of the CTG.

Because of the decisive effort of the unit, the attempt of the CTGs to recover their mass bases in Paquibato District and disrupt the government’s delivery of services for the people failed. With much fervor, the troops are still, presently, conducting pursuit operations.

No matter the obstacles, the Maglilingkod Troopers will stay committed to continue securing the distribution of government subsidies for the people.

“Paquibato District of Davao City is still a peaceful and conflict-resilient community. This incident with the Communist Terrorist Group is a clear manifestation that they are attempting to recover their mass bases for the reason that they are running out of space and can no longer acquire assistance from their mass supporters in the communities. Needless to say, they cannot hide much longer. Thus, we need your continued full support to end the CTGs from disrupting peace and development in the whole City,” Lt Col Salaguinto said.

Mayor Sara Duterte on her official statement, “We call on the public to reject the NPA terrorist, work together, and strongly resist its perverted political agenda and drive them completely out of our communities.”
