The military pledges to thwart any resurgence of the NPA in cleared communities

By John Rey Saavedra

The Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) is designated as a terrorist organization by the government.

Our mission is not yet over. We may have achieved significant gains in our campaign last month, but there is a lot to be done,” he said.

“Our forces are now focused on preventing the resurgence of the CPP-NPA in the Visayas by neutralizing the few remaining members of the terrorist group,” he added.

He said three of the 30 rebels neutralized last month were classified high-value suspects.

Rolando Caballera (alias Chow/Brooks), a member of the NPA’s regional executive committee in Eastern Visayas, died during the encounter in Albuera, Leyte, on Feb. 10.

Domingo Compoc (alias Cobra/Silong), the top NPA leader in Bohol, was killed in Bilar town on Feb. 23.

Rena Rhea Camariosa (alias Kira/Sheena), second deputy secretary of the NPA’s Southern Panay Front, was left to die by his comrades following an encounter in San Joaquin, Iloilo.

“The success of our campaign in its early stage this year is attributed to the active support of our people, having freed them from the clutches of the terrorist group last year. This is the reason why we cannot stop,” Arevalo said. (PNA)
