Army troopers hit NPA on use of landmines

Butuan City (14 September) -- Another landmine was discovered by 4th Infantry Division troopers in a week's row, the latest one in Bunawan, Agusan del Sur.

Last Thursday, soldiers from Bravo Company of the 75th Infantry Battalion and Charlie Company of the 23rd Infantry Battalion discovered the landmine at Rick Island in barangay Sta. Monica of the said town. The 75th Infantry Battalion, headed by Lt.Col Ruben C Agarcio, is based in Bislig City.

It was learned that the landmine made from improvised C4 was intended for anti-tank use.

Earlier this week, another anti-tank landmine was found in barangay Sta. Juana, Tagbina, Surigao del Sur.

4th Infantry Division spokesperson Lt. Col. Triumph Dominic Bagaipo condemned the use of landmines by the New People's Army (NPA), saying it could endanger not just soldiers but also passing civilians.

Lt.Col. Bagaipo decries these refutable acts perpetrated by the NPA after being tag as terrorists.

"The NPA continuously harass and blasted to death innocent civilians and foremost of these they do not respect human rights," Bagaipo said. (4th CMO Bn, 4ID, PA/ PIA-Caraga) [top]
