NPA harasses enemy troops 6 times in 4 days in central Mindanao

To frustrate the vicious Oplan Bayanihan and punish the corrupt Aquino regime for its anti-people and anti-peace rule, the New People's Army in North Central Mindanao Region has intensified its tactical offensives. These past few days, Red fighters attacked fascist troops in several guerrilla fronts in the region, inflicting serious casualties -- ten killed and five wounded -- among the reactionary troops.
8 September - around 8:20 AM, an NPA harassment team attacked troops of the 8th Infantry Battalion-Philippine Army launching combat operations in Barangay (village) Bolunay, Impasug-ong, Bukidnon, wounding one soldier. Enemy troops immediately withdrew after a reckless barrage of gunfire, indicating a low fighting morale among their ranks, even after the recently concluded re-training of their whole battalion.

9 September - around 10:30 AM, an armed NPA team under the Mt. Kitanglad Subregional Command harassed 8th Infantry Battalion troops in Sitio Butok, Barangay Capihan, Libona, Bukidnon. Two enemy soldiers were killed while one was wounded.
Venting their ire, the fascist troops hamletted the communities of Balaugon and Mintaubo, both in Capihan.

10 September - NPA fighters under the Western Agusan Norte-Agusan Sur Subregional Command harassed operating troops of the Bravo Company, 29th Infantry Battalion, in Sitio Lamusig, Tungao, Butuan City. Four soldiers were killed while one was wounded.

10 September - around 8:00 PM, an NPA squad harassed 8th Infantry Battalion troops aboard a KM-35 truck in Sitio Nabawang, Busdi, Malaybalay City. One was killed while one was wounded. Their vehicle was also damaged.

10 September - around 11:00 PM, NPA fighters harassed the reinforcements sent by the 8th Infantry Battalion in Sitio Nabawang. The place of incident is only three kilometers away from the first encounter. One soldier was wounded.

11 September - around 5:00 PM, an NPA unit under the Western AN-AS Subregional Command harassed 29th Infantry Battalion troops in Sitio Lamusig. Three soldiers were killed.

In all these attacks, the NPA has had no casualties, and instead has boosted the fighters’ morale in advancing the people’s war to the strategic stalemate stage.

As the armed movement in the region grows stronger, we further open our guerrilla fronts to anyone who wishes to join the NPA to serve the poor and oppressed. We also encourage further support from the masses for the people’s democratic revolution.

Only by winning this war can we uproot our basic problems and achieve genuine and lasting peace.
