The NPAs who were responsible for a landmine attack in Davao say the bomb was command detonated. Such admission from the group only levels the fact that they really intended to kill PDRRMC volunteers and Red Cross personnel accompanying wounded soldiers to be brought to a hospital. The NPAs really targeted the ambulance.
In any war, and in any civilized society, hospitals, ambulances, Red Cross trucks and personnel are given due respect and protection. They are never attacked for their mission is to save lives and nothing else. The NPAs are really violent and well-known for their violation of all laws in the land.
Remember, NPAs are popular as extortionists, killers, liquidators, killing businessmen, burning companies and the massacre of soldiers and civilians in their many violent and terroristic attacks. They are not civilized, primitive and do not recognize the Rule of Law.
