NPA-Negros fires at detachment
The New People’s Army (NPA)-Central Negros (Leonardo Panaligan Command) fired at a CAFGU Active Auxillary (CAA) detachment in Barangay Guba, Vallehermoso, Negros Oriental on September 8. A soldier of the 62nd IB was killed. Residents complained that they were coerced by soliders to “surrender” and enlist in the CAFGU.
The NPA-South Central Negros paralyzed a backhoe at Sitio Bulod, Barangay Carabalan, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental on September 11. The backhoe was owned by destructive company ESJ and Sons Construction Co. According to the NPA, its project will pave way for the entry of mining companies which will destory approximately 1,100 hectares of Itoman-Maghat-Bukidnon ancestral lands.
