NPAs strike anew in Misamis Oriental

Butuan City (14 September) -- A running gun battle occurred last Thursday between soldiers from the 4th Infantry Division and New People's Army (NPA) rebels in Medina, Misamis Oriental.

4th Infantry Division spokesperson Lt. Col. Triumph Dominic G Bagaipo said the encounter occurred in sitio Labas, Barangay Pagsama of the said town.

A platoon from the 8th Infantry Battalion chanced upon around ten NPA rebels when the encounter occurred.

There was no casualty on the soldiers' side and casualties on the NPA side could not be determined.

Earlier, another group of Army troopers from the 8th Infantry Battalion discovered a recently abandoned NPA camp in Medina.

Bagaipo identified the place of the discovery as sitio Kabol Kabol in barangay Mananum Daan.

He estimated that the NPA camp could accommodate around 40 rebels when it was yet used.

In the camp, the troops recovered 25 meters of electric wire believed to be used to make landmines. (4th CMO Bn, 4ID, PA/ PIA-Caraga) [top]
