36IB discovers cave encampment

Butuan City (21 October) -- The rebels' world is getting smaller and smaller as more civilians turn them over to government troops.

This is what exactly happened with the Long Range Patrol Unit of 36IB under the leadership of LtCol Dennis Godfrey F Gammad. The team is led by 2Lt Emeterio Armada where a civilian informant led them into the discovery of a cave encampment believed to be used by NPAs in hiding from the Army troops.

This cave is located at Sitio Pag-awitan Barangay Malixi Tagbina Surigao del Sur. It has a radius of approximately 10ft and around 150m in length. There are evidences that humans have been entering and staying in the cave since there were food wrappers and empty cans of sardines scattered in the area. It can shelter around 60-100 individuals. The cave also acts as passage-way since its exit leads into a forested area of the same barangay.

The entrance and exit cannot be easily identified since there is thick vegetation around it that's why it was only discovered with a guide from the local populace. This encampment only adds up to the three (3) camps discovered last August where civilian informants were also the guide.

This unit continuously calls out for the peaceful surrender of the rebels in order to take advantage of the government's programs in return. These are the Social Integration Program and "Balik-Baril" program. 36IB's hotline number is always open so you can contact us 24/7. Our number is 09086992175.
