Commies kill soldier in Duterte’s turf

Posted to the Mindanao Examiner (May 9, 2020): Commies kill soldier in Duterte’s turf

Communist insurgents attacked a group of soldiers and killing one of them in President Rodrigo Duterte’s own turf in Davao City in southern Philippines.

PFC. Roy Recreo, a member of the 16th Infantry Battalion, was slain in the fighting that broke out in the village called Paradise Embac.

The clash erupted Friday, but both the Eastern Mindanao Command and the 10th Infantry Division did not release any report of the firefight up to press time.

The local government also did not release any statement on the fighting.

Just last month, New People’s Army also ambushed a military truck and wounded 2 soldiers in Davao City’s Malabog village in Paquibato district. The April 23 ambush targeted members of the same battalion.

The 1003rd Infantry Brigade said the soldiers were sent to the area after receiving reports of the presence of rebels in Paquibato, a known lair of the communist group which has been fighting for many decades now for the establishment of a separate state.

Duterte previously threatened to impose martial law if rebel attacks continue across the country, but the NPA did not stop its offensive with communist leader Jose Maria Sison ordering more assaults on military targets. (Mindanao Examiner)
