Communist rebels surrender to 101st Brigade

Dipolog City (21 October) -- Three communist rebels operating in Zamboanga del Norte have surrendered to the Philippine Army's (PA) 101st Infantry Brigade based in Barangay Del Pilar of Piņan town.

Capt. Roderick Salayo of the 101st Brigade reported during the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) meeting held here yesterday that the three communist rebels were Ronel Gumilid Anggit of Olingan, Dipolog City, Nestor Palomares Tabat Jr. of Venus in Sergio Osmeņa town and Marvie G. Gumalan of Pamululugon in Roxas municipality. These former rebels were said to have been operating under the "Rehiyonal de Grabidad 1" (RDG1), an operations command of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army (CPP-NPA).

The Philippine Army's 101st Infantry Brigade whose area of jurisdiction covers the province of Misamis Occidental, part of Zamboanga del Sur and Zamboanga del Norte's first and second districts as well as the two municipalities of Leon Postigo and Godod in the third district, considers the Communist Terrorist Movement (CMT) as the major threat to the peace and order condition in the area.

On the other hand, the Lost MILF Group (LMG), Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF)-Misuari Group (MNLF, Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) and other lawless elements pose threat to the peace and order condition in the municipalities in the third district of Zamboanga del Norte and Zamboanga Sibugay.

Zamboanga del Norte's third district and the whole of Zamboanga Sibugay are under the jurisdiction of the Philippine Army's 102nd Infantry Brigade. (PIA-ZN) [top]
