Army troops seize war materiel in alleged NPA lair in Aurora
Philippine Army troops on Friday recovered war materiel believed to be owned by the New People’s Army (NPA) in Barangay Matawe in Dingalan town in Aurora province.
According to Lt. Col. Julito B. Recto, acting commander of the Army’s 91st Infantry (Sinagtala) Battalion (91IB), the soldiers found the rebels’ supplies cache after receiving a tip from a civilian.
In a Philippine News Agency report, Recto said the troops recovered one anti-tank mine, one detonating cord, and one .38-caliber revolver.
“So far, our troops are scouring the area for further development against the enemy,” he said in the report.
Recto commended the government troops for their immediate action and urged them to intensify their campaign against terrorism.
