CAMP CAPINPIN, Tanay, Rizal – Soldiers conducting unrelenting focused military operations in the hinterlands of Quezon Province recovered an Improvised Explosive Device and other NPA personal belongings at Sitio Cabungahan, Brgy Cagsiay of Mauban town on August 14 after responding to reports from concerned citizens.

According to Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan S Manio, Commanding Officer of the 1st Infantry Battalion, the planting of IED, weighing around five kilos, is believed to be perpetrated by NPAs belonging to SRMA 4A under alias Hammer which operates in the boundaries of Laguna and Quezon.

He added that “it is not only a proof of the NPAs’ desperate attempt to project power and relevance but a crime against humanity” since it endangered the people from the area.

He concluded his statement by saying that “the IED has been safely recovered by the EOD team for proper disposal thereby ensuring the safety of the villagers”.

Col Alex Rillera, Commander of the 202nd Brigade which has operational jurisdiction over the area, condemned “this act of terrorism that was executed with blatant disregard to the safety of the people.”

He called on the NPA terrorists “to obey internationally accepted rules of engagements which puts premium on insulating innocent civilians” in every courses of action that the opposing forces will take.

When asked for comment, Brigadier General Arnulfo Marcelo B Burgos Jr, Commander of the 2nd Infantry Division which covers CALABARZON and MIMARO Regions, said that “this incident exposes the NPA’s true nature and proves the government’s claim that they are a band of terrorists contrary to what they are trying to project” in their statements.

He ended his statement by calling upon the enemies of the state to “go back to mainstream society and be part of the solution to the problems which our country is facing.”

“We have now government mechanisms in place to facilitate your reintegration. We are confident that with your help, we will be able to create a better future for the next generations of Filipinos”, said BGen Burgos.
