Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija – As a result of pursuit operations against the fleeing NPA bandits that they clashed with on April 21, 2020, the 91st Infantry “Sinagtala” Battalion (91IB), recovered five (5) high-powered firearms and assorted ammunitions along the escape routes of the fleeing bandits at vicinity Barangay Diaat, Maria Aurora, Aurora on April 23, 2020.

The troops recovered four (4) M16 rifles & one (1) M653 rifle or baby armalite, 235 rounds of ammunition, seventeen (17) magazines for M16.

The recovery of firearms was a result of an information relayed by concerned civilians – where the NPA bandits left their firearms, while they were running for their lives and bringing with them their casualties as troops were hot on their trails. Lieutenant Colonel Reandrew P. Rubio, Acting Commanding Officer of 91IB, lauded the civilians for the crucial information provided them.

“It is evident that the enemy incurred casulties too; as the NPAs would not just leave behind their treasured firearms and ammunitions in their haste to escape, as it is their only defense. It is only a matter of time before the NPA bandits we are pursing will be cornered, arrested, and be made to answer for their crimes,” added Lieutenat Colonel Rubio.

The civilians, when asked why they tipped-off the locations of the NPA terrorists’ firearms, said that they want the NPA bandits out of their barangay as they want it peaceful as before, when the NPA bandits were not yet around.

With the attack of local terrorists to the 91IB troops, and with another encounter between the troops of the 81st Infantry “Spartan” Battalion and NPA bandits in Ilocos Sur on that same day (April 21), the 7th Infantry “Kaugnay” Division (7ID), gave order to intensify their combat operations.

Issuing the order is Brigadier General Alfredo V. Rosario, Jr., the 7ID Commander, who commended the troops for the result of the pursuit operations. Further, he said, “Amidst the Covid-19 crisis that the country is facing, we have to intensify our security and combat operations to protect the relief goods that the government and the private stakeholders are giving to the needy. Our people can be assured that your Army will do all necessary actions to keep everyone safe, and for the relief goods to be made available for them at whatever cost.”
