58-IB elements encounter communist terrorists

Dayoan, Tago, SDS (October 1) -- Operating troops of Bravo Company 58IB, Philippine Army under 1Lt Marmol encountered some 50 Communist Terrorists (CTs) in an engagement at the hinterlands of Barangay Bitaugan, San Miguel, Surigao del Sur around 7 o'clock in the morning Monday (September 28).

After a three and half hours clash between the government troops and CTs, the troops were able to recover the following: one Armalite rifle, six long magazines with live ammunition, two claymore mines, one rifle grenade, one hand grenade, two sniper scope, one ICOM hand held radio, two hundred fifty one rounds of ammunition linked for a machinegun, assorted medical paraphernalia, and subversive documents. There were bloodstains found in the area which could only mean the CTs sustained fatalities while one government trooper was wounded in the encounter.

As of press time, the government troops are still in the area pursuing the CTs. The CTs are believed to be members of FC-30 and FC-19B operating in the area of Diwata Range/Complex of the North Eastern Mindanao Regional Committee (NEMRC). Information is still being gathered on the consolidation of the two Front Committees in Bitaugan. (PAO-58IB, 4ID, PA/PIA Surigao del Sur) [top]
