• Roadside bombing kills 5


    Communist rebels set off a roadside bomb on a military truck transporting soldiers, sparking a gunbattle that killed one gunman and four soldiers in Bukidnon province last Wednesday, Major Ezra Balagtey, a spokesman for the Eastern Mindanao Command, said.  The soldiers were heading to San Fernando town after some New People’s Army (NPA) rebels threatened to burn a construction equipment. The battle also left three soldiers wounded.  In a separate incident in Tipo-tipo, Basilan province, the Philippine Army reported a skirmish with the Abu Sayyaf that left 7 soldiers injured and 3 rebels dead.

    1. For some, banditry is all they know to make a living, their haven of comfort and feel of power with their guns in their arms. Continue government efforts and initiatives to lead them to the right path for as long as it takes, but at the same time continue to kill each one of them who provoke a havoc against humanity especially to the military.
