Cagayan Valley military steps up security on critical infrastructures

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya (12 October) -- The military here has intensified their security measures in the region following the attack of communist rebels at the Bacolod City International Airport in Silay City, Negros Ocidental Sunday (October 8).

Lt. Colonel Ferdinand Pasion, head of the public information office of the army's 5th Infantry Division based in Gamu, Isabela said they have renewed their coordination with the Philippine National Police(PNP) in the region to carefully secure vital government and private installations in Cagayan Valley against imminent attacks by the New People's Army (NPA) rebels.

Pasion said security measures are being done regularly to ensure the utmost security of the people and facilities of the whole region.

"Aside from this, we have also complementary measures with regard to the security of critical infrastructures in the region," Pasion told PIA.

He said regular external operations are being conducted to ensure that the communist rebels cannot establish their proximity to their supposed targets.

According to him, while the NPA remains a threat to national security despite their decreasing strength, they cannot easily establish offensives in the region because of the vigilance of community residents.

"In fact, we are winning from our efforts in gaining the trust and confidence of the people," he added.

Paion said the strength of the NPA is now outnumbered and continuously decreasing due to the government's active role in the anti-insurgency program, following President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's declaration of an all-out war against the communist movement in the country. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
