CEBU, Philippines — Wala’y paglugak ang operasyon sa Visayas Command batok sa CPP-NPA sa tibuok Visayas Region sa buwan sa Pebrero nga niresulta sa pagka -neutralized ug pag-recover sa mga armas sa mga rebelde.

Ang duha ka Joint Task Forces sa Visayas Command nga mao ang Joint Task Force Spear (JTF Spear) ug Joint Task Force Storm (JTF-Storm) inabagan sa component units, Naval Forces Central (NFC) sa Philippine Navy ug Tactical Operations Wing Central (TOWCEN) sa Philippine Air Force nakatala og 21 ka armed encounters batok sa CPP-NPA sa Visayas Region.

Sumala pa sa kasundalohan 30 ka NPA, 14 niini ang namatay sa engkwentro, 15 ang nibalik sa sabakan sa gobiyerno, usa ang nadakpan ug 47 ka mga armas ang na-recover sa miaging buwan ug ang 34 niini mga high-powered firearms.

Si Lieutenant General Benedict Arevalo, Commander sa Visayas Command mitataw nga taliwa sa maong kalampusan wala pa matapos ang ilang misyon.

“Mission is not yet over. We may have achieved significant gains in our campaign this month but there’s still more that needs to be done. 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,” sigon ni Arevalo.

Sa 30 ka napatay, ang tulo nila mga high-value personalities.

“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. We must and we will sustain our gains, for it is through the call of our people to end the CPP-NPA in the region that we strive and will remain committed to our mandate of ending the local communist armed conflict, the soonest the possible time,” ni Arevalo pa.  Gihimug-atan sab niini nga dili sila magduha-duha sa paggamit sa ilang kusog aron makab-ot ang ilang tinguha.

“We have the manpower and the resources. As what the terrorist group has experienced in the recent skirmishes these past few days, is that we will not hesitate to use our full military might to achieve our objective,” matud sa Commander. (BANAT NEWS)
