No reason for NPA to celebrate 55th anniversary: 10th ID spox

THE 10TH Infantry Division said the New People’s Army (NPA) has no reason to celebrate its 55th founding anniversary on March 29.

During the AFP-PNP press briefing on Wednesday at The Royal Mandaya Hotel, Major Mark Anthony Tito, the division’s spokesperson, said the rebel group’s capability to sow terror in Davao Region has been severely crippled.

“They are also incapable of conducting any atrocities in our Davao Region. But even so, we do not lower our guards. We are not complacent. The security level of our army remains high,” he added.

Tito added that they are preparing for the 137th anniversary of the Philippine Army on March 22 rather than remembering the activity of the rebel group.

Nevertheless, the four infantry brigades are currently conducting combat operations, including community visitation, to prevent the re-entry of the communist terrorists on cleared barangays.

“Our focus is the mandate for us to defeat the last remaining front in Bukidnon not later than March 31 this year,” Tito said.” That’s why we have doubled our efforts, especially for our troops operating in Bukidnon area to dismantle the Weakened Guerilla Front 57.”
