11th IB Troops clash with NPA rebels anew In Guihulngan City

Guihulngan City – Troops of 11IB clashed with members of NPA at 6:40am today at Sitio Cansuhi, Brgy Tacpao, Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental. The troops were conducting regular security patrol in the area when some residents informed the presence of armed NPA’s at the vicinity of creek thereat. While investigating the information, they were fired upon by MOL 15 NPA’s, thus fierce exchange of fire ensued from both sides. After three (3) minutes, the NPA’s withdrew while the government troops pursued them. Recovered at the encounter site were one (1) caliber 357 pistol, one (1) hand grenade, one (1) Improvised Explosive Device (IED) with detonating cord, five (5) NPA flags and one (1) backpack with subversive documents.

Lt Col Willy Isaac, CO 11IB stressed that the Philippine Army will not be deterred by the attempts to disrupt its genuine peace and development activities. He further expresses his deep gratitude to the civilian populace in Tacpao and neighboring Binobohan for their support especially in informing the troops of the whereabouts of this lawless armed group in their vicinity. This pouring of civilian support could be attributed to the sincere effort of 11IB Bayanihan Teams that were deployed last year in Guihulngan, include Tacpao and Binobohan. Isaac further urged all stakeholders, especially the populace in the remote Brgys to join hands in the spirit of “Bayanihan” to attain peace and usher in development for our respective communities.
