Kitaotao, Bukidnon – Just recently, a revelation from a Former Rebel led the military troops to a depot of war materials, ammunitions and supplies belonging to the Communist Terrorist Group (CTG) in different locations in the areas of Kitaotao, Bukidnon.

On August 5, 2020, the joint forces of 16th Infantry (Maglilingkod) Battalion, 10MIB, and 3IB recovered war materials that were buried in the hinterland of Sitio Spring, Brgy Sinaysayan, Kitaotao, Bukidnon, identified as one of the mobility corridors of the New People’s Army (NPA). Upon reaching the area, the military troops recovered one (1) M1 US Carbine and eight (8) Magazines (6 short and 2 long) with one hundred two (102) live ammunitions; and five (5) sets of Detonating materials used for Improvised Explosive Device (IED). Later that day, another two (2) IEDs, weighing five (5) kilograms each were also recovered at Sitio San Jose, Brgy Bulukbukan in the same municipality.

Further, last August 7, 2020, the troops while conducting operation discovered a Communist Terrorist Group’s (CTG’s) hideout located at Brgy Tandong, Kitaotao, Bukidnon that can accommodate approximately twenty (20) persons. Recovered at the said hideout were nine (9) containers of rice and one (1) anti-personnel mine that could be deadly both to soldiers and civilians.

The recovery of Improvised Explosive Devices with detonating components clearly describe CTG’s intent on the continuous utilization of this prohibited device that poses serious danger not only to combatant but to non-combatant as well. In the agreement, the use of Improvised Explosive Device (IED) or “mines” violates the provisions of Part III, Article 2, Section 15 of the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHIHL) between the government and National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP).

The concerted effort of the 16IB in the recovery of enemy’s war materials and supplies thwart the hostile plan of the CTGs terroristic activities especially in the vulnerable communities. It only appears that these terrorists can put at risk the lives of the civilians just to do their atrocities and the implication it may cause to the community. The unit also urged the local populace to cooperate and support government’s effort in attaining peace and development in the area.
