CAMP MONTECLARO, Miagao, Iloilo—The Army’s 61st Infantry (Hunter) Battalion(61IB) foiled the CPP-NPA Terrorist’s plan to conduct atrocities in the 1st District of Iloilo following an encounter in Barangay Igtuble, Tubungan, Iloilo at about 6:15 in the evening of November 26, 2019.

According to LTC Joel Benedict Batara, Commanding Officer, 61IB, the troops responded to a report about the presence of armed CPP-NPA terrorists in the area. When members of the 61IB reached the area, the armed engagement immediately transpired between the troops and more or less 10 communist-terrorists believed to be members of Sibat 1, Southern Front, Komiteng Rehiyon-Panay under Moncino Tacaisan alias Dana, said LTC Batara.

The firefight lasted for about ten (10) minutes, and the enemy scampered towards different directions. No one was hurt on the government side. The enemy suffered injuries based on the traces of bloodstains seen on their withdrawal routes.

The troops recovered an anti-personnel landmine, 18 meters electrical wire anddetonator in the encounter site. “Tubungan specifically Barangay Igtuble is a strategic place for the CPP-NPA Terrorist to hide because of its mountainous terrain. But we will not allow these terrorists to destroy the breathtaking landscape of Tubungan and its blooming tourism industry. We will not rest on our laurels, and we will be doubling our efforts in keeping this town free from the menace of insurgency,” Batara emphasized.

“Keeping the town free from insurgents is not only our business. It’s a responsibility of every Tubunganon, hence, I am reiterating my call to all residents to continue supporting their soldiers through giving accurate information about the movement, location and activities of the CPP-NPA Terrorist to prevent them from terrorizing the town and its people,” he added.
