“Anti-insurgency efforts pay-off in Negros Occidental”


CAMP PERALTA, Jamindan, Capiz – The full force of the anti-insurgency efforts of the Cauayanons and the Army’s 15th Infantry Battalion is significantly hitting the CPP-NPA Terrorists in Cauayan, Negros Occidental.

Brigadier General Eric Vinoya, Commander of the Army’s 3rd Infantry (Spearhead) Division, made this remark following the armed engagement between 15IB and CPP-NPA Terrorists, wherein a female member terrorist is believed to have died as a result of the clash, in Barangay Camalandaan in Cauayan town, Province of Negros Occidental on January 21, 2020.

“The overwhelming support of the Cauayanons to our anti-insurgency drive, especially by providing our troops vital information on the whereabouts of the enemy, boosted our relentless combat operations against these anti-people, anti-peace, and anti-progress communist-terrorists. We will continue to fulfill the Negrenses’ desire for an insurgency-free Negros as I renew my order to our troops to be relentless in hunting down these terrorists.” Brigadier General Vinoya said.

Brigadier General Vinoya also commended the dauntless troops of the 15IB especially those who were wounded and shed their blood in protecting the people from the menace of the communist-terrorists. “Wounds only motivate our soldiers to fight harder against oppressors of the Filipino people. Thus, the CPP-NPA Terrorists should consider our long-time call for them to surrender. Otherwise, they will suffer the same fate as that of their dead comrades.” Vinoya emphasized.
