19 NPA rebels surrender in Bukidnon


DAVAO CITY: In three days, 19 New People’s Army (NPA) rebels in Bukidnon surrendered to the Philippine Army’s 8th Infantry Battalion (8IB). Lt. Colonel Ronald Illana, 8IB commanding officer, said five more Left combatants surrendered on Monday following the surrender of 14 others on Saturday. The rebels belong to the Sub-Regional Committee 2 (SRC 2) of the North Central Mindanao Regional Command, which reportedly kept on harassing residents of Cabanglasan town. They yielded along with their firearms. Illana said the heightened promotion of the government’s Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program by the Army Community Support Program (CSP) Teams and the continuous military operations played major role in the surrender. He reiterated his call for the remaining members of the rebels in Bukidnon to “surrender now to the CSP Teams in their community because the government is ready to help them.”
