SAN AGUSTIN, Surigao del Sur – More or less thirty (30) Communist NPA Terrorists (CNTs) deliberately fired on the Community Support Teams (CSTs), operationally controlled by the 3rd Special Forces Battalion, Philippine Army, while on immersion in Sitio Magkahunao, Brgy Buhisan, San Agustin, Surigao del Sur yesterday morning May 5, 2019.

Government troops immediately fired back to protect themselves from the perpetrators. Close Air Support (CAS) was also employed to loosen the strong resistance of the CNTs attack and to facilitate the extrication of the government forces.

The firefight lasted for 30 minutes which resulted to the untimely demise of CAA Angelo P Mariano, 32 years old and a resident of Brgy Magaud, Loreto, Agusan del Sur.

Lt. Col. Joey B Baybayan, Commander 3SF Battalion said that the deployment of the Community Support Program (CSP) teams started last May 2, 2019 which aims to establish and develop disaster and conflict resilient communities in San Agustin.

He added, “CAA Mariano is among the CSP operators deployed in Sitio Magkahunao in order to achieve long lasting peace and development. He lost his life fighting to protect the people from the terroristic acts of the CNTs. The 3rd Special Forces Battalion grieves as we lost a comrade. We also extend our deepest sympathy to the bereaved family and friends of CAA Mariano”.

Baybayan emphasized that, “His death is a clear manifestation of his heroism and patriotism; always ready sacrifice everything at the expense of losing his own life. His sacrifice will not go in vain for the battalion will seek justice and file appropriate criminal charges against the CNT perpetrators”,
