NPA’S FOOD CACHE SEIZED IN LANAO DEL SUR 

 

MALABANG, Lanao del Sur: Military troops seized a food cache of communist rebels following operations in Lanao del Sur. Lt. Col. Rafman Altre, 82nd Infantry Battalion commander, on Friday said soldiers discovered eight containers of rice in Tagoloan 2. Altre said soldiers found the cache after being tipped off by civilians in the area. “Our focused military operations in Lanao del Sur were relentless, and we would not allow these rebels to sow terror in the community,” said Brig. Gen. Romeo Brawner Jr., commander of 103rd Infantry Brigade. In April 2019, the 82IB troops found 21 containers of rice in Barangay Sigayan, Tagoloan 2. “We laud the support extended by the civilian populace in our security campaign to end insurgency and lawlessness in Lanao del Sur. We sustained our operations to debilitate threat groups which spoiled the peace and security in the area,” said Lt. Gen. Cirilito Sobejana, commander of Western Mindanao Command.
