MATI CITY, Davao Oriental — Enraged civilians from the abuses and terroristic acts of the Communist New Peoples Army Terrorists (CNTs) reported the presence of the armed group and the existence of three (3) Improvised Explosive Device (IED) cache in Barangay San Jose, Bislig, Surugao Del Sur to troops under the 701st Infatry “Kagitingan” Brigade last July 29, 2019.

The civilians from the nearby town of Lingig, Surigao Del Sur who were previous members of CNT’s Underground Mass Organization (UGMO) were already fed up with the abuses and terroristic acts by using them as spies, and couriers prompting them to report the presence of the armed group and their IED cache.

Due to the effective conduct of Community Support Program (CSP) in partnership with the Local Government Unit of Lingig and the delivery of services, former UGMO members tipped off the presence of the CNTs, IEDs cache and other war materials.

Responding from the report, the 701st Brigade under Brigadier General Manuel V. Sequitin launched an operation and deployed the 67th and 28th Infantry Battalions forcing the CNTs under the Weakened Guerrilla Front (WGF) 20 & 25 to leave their IED cache and other war materials.

The troops scoured the area and were able to recover a total of twenty four (24) IEDs, one (1) M14 rifle, two (2) boxes containing trinitrotoluene or TNT (high explosive substance) and a 20 litter gallon containing an unknown black liquid substance in Sitio Balete, Barangay San Jose, Bislig, Surugao Del Sur.

Brigadier General Sequitin lauded the people of Bislig and lingig, Surigao del Sur for the trust they accorded to the troops. BGen Sequitin further encouraged the community saying; “Let us continue to be partners of peace by depriving the communist terrorist of sanctuary for the future of our family and the development of your community”.
