Press Release: SINAS ALERTS PNP UNITS VS. CPP/NPA OFFENSIVE
The Philippine National Police high command reminded anew all police field units to remain alert and vigilant against possible increased hostilities by the communist New People’s Army ahead of the communist movement’s 52nd founding anniversary on December 26.
“The CPP-NPA-NDF is known to launch high-profile hostilities to drumbeat commemoration of significant dates in the underground movement over the past five decades,” Sinas said adding that “the recent rash of hostile actions initiated by the CPP-NPA-NDF are all part of that long vicious cycle and 50-year tradition of violence of the local communist movement.”
The PNP leadership alerted police field units to maintain defensive security posture amid the latest series of CPP-NPA-NDF hostilities against government personnel, isolated government installations, and civilian communities mostly with the use of landmines, long outlawed by international conventions for use in warfare.
The latest CPP-NPA-NDF violent action was reported yesterday (Dec 17) in Western Visayas when a PNP patrol vehicle hit a landmine in Barangay Balicua, Tubungan, Iloilo at 2:45 PM.
The PNP Team on board led by Police Lieutenant Romel Samson, were unhurt and immediately initiated counter-ambush measures.
On December 15, two military trucks transporting relief goods for disaster victims hit a landmine in Barangay Sogoy, Castilla, Sorsogon at 5:20AM.
On December 10, a police corporal died in a landmine-ambush staged by the CPP-NPA-NDF on a police team performing administrative mission to escort an accused to court in Barangay Logero, Marabut, Samar.
