Army officer vows to crush remaining NPA units in H1

THE 10TH Infantry Division vows to crush the remaining three guerilla fronts under its area of responsibility before the end of June this year. 

Speaking in yesterday’s AFP-PNP Press briefing held at The Royal Mandaya Hotel, 10th Infantry Division commander Maj. Gen. Jose Eriel Niembra said the target is attainable since the three guerrilla fronts are already severely weakened.

“We have just given additional area in order to help the 4ID concentrate on their enemy in the area of Surigao and Agusan,” he said.

The GF 14 operates in Agusan and Surigao, while the GF 57 holes out at the boundary of North Cotabato and Bukidnon. In response, the Army assigned the 4th ID to Bukidnon to further cripple the capability of the communist terrorists.

“The 4ID can concentrate on the North Central Mindanao Regional Committee (NCMRC) in Northern Bukidnon in the Pantaron Range and Surigao area,” he said.

Moreover, they are currently monitoring three “suspicious” non-government organizations reportedly doing community immersion activities in the indigenous communities in the region.

He said these NGOs have entered the areas of Pantukan in Davao de Oro, Gov. Generoso and Lupon in Davao Oriental, and Talaingod in Davao del Norte. 

Meanwhile, the 1002nd Another sub-regional command (SRC) group is being confronted by the 1002nd Infantry Brigade in Malungon, Sarangani. 

“We have now a new campaign plan pledge, “Pagkakaisa,” considering the insurgency-free status of the region. We opted to choose additional areas of responsibility instead of pulling out units going to other areas,” the commander said.

Niembra said seven municipalities of Bukidnon were added to the area of responsibility of the 10ID, including Maramag to the southern portion of Valencia City.
