CAMP PERALTA, JAMINDAN, CAPIZ — The New People’s Army (NPA) in Panay continue to violate the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL) when it fired upon soldiers in a populated area of Brgy. Mayang in Tubungan, Iloilo recently.


Lieutenant Col. Aldwine Almase, commanding officer of 82nd Infantry Battalion said that his troops were securing the convoy of medical team from the 301st Brigade and civilian volunteers from Operation Blessing (an international humanitarian organization) who came from a medical and dental mission in Leon, Iloilo when they encountered some five armed elements believed to be members of the Southern Front, Komiteng Rehiyonal-Panay.

 

A ten minute fire fight ensued which resulted in the recovery of a dead body believed to be that of an NPA rebel and a 12-gauge shotgun with live ammunition.


They also saw blood stains along the NPA’s withdrawal route believed to be those of the wounded NPA members.


No casualty from the government troops was reported.


Members of the Philippine National Police Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) conducted investigation in the scene of encounter to identify further casualties.


“We join the local government officials, civil society organizations, and the peace-loving people of Panay in strongly condemning this treacherous act.


We regret that despite our efforts to bring the necessary assistance to the people, the NPA answered it in a senseless way. This is a brazen disregard of the CARHIHL of which the communist group is a signatory,” said Major Gen. Aurelio Baladad, commander of the Army’s 3rd infantry division.


The Army personnel and the Operation Blessing conducted a four-day medical and dental civic action programs (MEDCAP and DENCAP) in Tigmarabo in Miag-ao, Mantangon; Igbaras, Igdampog Sur in Tubungan; and Paga in Leon, all of Iloilo. Said mission benefited over 1,500 residents.


The group came from Brgy. Paga, Leon which was the last phase of the MEDCAP and DENCAP prior to the incident.


Earlier, CPP-NPA also violated CARHRIHL when it set off an improvised explosive device (IED) along the highway in the boundary of Guimbal and Miag-ao, Iloilo on July 1, 2014, wounding two soldiers and two civilians.


It also violated Republic Act No. 9851 or the Philippine Act on Crimes Against International Humanitarian Law, Genocide, and Other Crimes Against Humanity, NPA /1 specifically Chapter III, Section 4 c.5., for launching an attack in the knowledge that such attack will cause incidental loss of life or injury to civilians.


According to Baladad, the Army in Panay and all over the region remains steadfast in protecting the civilian and will work even more in providing the necessary assistance to the people.


“We call on the CPP-NPA to lay down their arms peacefully, abandon the armed struggle and go back to the peace negotiating table to put an end to this conflict,” Baladad added.
