Davao City police condemns NPA attack

From the Manila Bulletin (May 10, 2020): Davao City police condemns NPA attack (By Armando Fenequito Jr.)

DAVAO CITY — The Davao City Police Office (DCPO) has condemned the attack of New People’s Army (NPA) rebels on the 16th Infantry Battalion (16th IB) in Paquibato District here, which resulted in the death of a soldier, and wounding of two others.

In a statement released on Saturday night, the DCPO denounced the attack that is “an affront, not to the military, but to the Filipinos’ sense of love and compassion to their countrymen deeply affected by this plight.”

The NPA attack was staged last May 8 in Sitio Manipis on a group of soldiers who were part of a monitoring team dispatched to assist in a humanitarian operation.

“We express our heartfelt condolences to the family of the fallen soldier and wished a speedy recovery to those wounded (in the attack),” the DCPO said.
