Local terrorists blast IED in Davao Sur

Panacan, Davao City (23 February) -- Local terrorists blasted an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in the village of Sangay in Malita town in Davao del Sur province 1:35 PM Saturday.

The bomb blast narrowly missed a passing military convoy going to the village of Pangleon also in Malita town. Reports show that soldiers were on their way for a community outreach and "pulong-pulong" (village meeting) when the explosion occurred.

Local Terrorist Front-71 (LTF-71) of the New People's Army (NPA) is believed to be behind the newest IED explosion in Davao del Sur. Last year four policemen and a civilian were killed when NPA terrorists exploded a roadside bomb in this province.

The 10th Infantry Division (10ID) under Maj. Gen Carlos Holganza strongly condemned the recent attack. "These local terrorist clearly do not respect Human Rights. The use of IED is outlawed by every civilized nation in the world. It clearly shows the terrorist nature of the CPP-NPA-NDF." Holganza said.

A record number of IEDs were blasted by local terrorists in region 11 in the past. A total of 11 IEDs exploded in the region in 2009, eight of these explosions resulted in the killing of 11 (10 of which were government troops and one civilian) and wounding of 30 individuals (28 government agents and two civilians). Six of these explosions were in the hinterland parts of Davao City, three in Davao Oriental, one each in Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur and Compostela Valley Provinces. (101D) [top]
