From the Philippine Daily Inquirer (Jun 26, 2020): 2 militias wounded in attack by suspected NPA rebels in Iligan (By: Inquirer Mindanao)
ILIGAN CITY –– Two civilian militias were seriously wounded after armed men suspected to be New People’s Army (NPA) harassed an Army detachment in a hinterland village here Friday morning.
Lieutenant Liza Dango-Mira, civil-military operations officer of the Army’s 4th Mechanized Infantry Battalion, said the attack happened at 10:10 a.m. in Barangay Kalilangan.
This is the second attack by suspected NPA rebels in a month. Last month, the rebels were also tagged in a clash with Army soldiers in Mainit village.
Mira said the wounded militias were immediately brought to a hospital in the city for treatment.
She added that a pursuit operation is underway.
Suspected Maoist rebels have been frequenting the city’s hinterland communities for about a year now.
