Three CNTs surrender to Army's 10IB in Misamis Occidental

IPIL, Zamboanga Sibugay Province-three Communist NPA Terrorists (CNT) under the weakened Guerilla Front Sendong, voluntarily surrendered themselves to the 10th Infantry (Steady On) Battalion, yesterday, September 6, 2023.

The individuals who surrendered are identified as Juanito Gumelos Jalalon (alias Jofel/Gino), 28 years old, from Brgy Lalud, DVC, Misamis Occidental; Jenela Tomobo Minguay (alias Rica), 25 years old, from Brgy Tuno, DVC, Misamis Occidental; and Renie Ansigue Lubetanya (alias Jeboy), 30 years old, from Dumingag, Zamboanga del Sur.

Their decision of returning to the folds of the law was primarily motivated by the hardships they faced during their involvement with the Guerilla Front Sendong.

Lieutenant Colonel Jose Andre R. Monje, the Commanding Officer of the 10th Infantry Battalion, assured the surrendered individuals of their safety while they are in their custody.

"We will take care of the surrenderers and facilitate their enrollment in the government's Enhanced-Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP)." Lt. Col. Monje said.

While enrolling in the E-CLIP program, the Provincial Government of Misamis Occidental, led by their Provincial Governor, the Honorable Henry S. Oaminal, has committed to providing immediate cash assistance of Three Hundred Thousand Pesos (PhP300,000.00) each to support the reintegration process of the surrenderers.

Meanwhile, Brigadier General Elmer B. Suderio, the Commander of the 102nd Infantry (Igsoon) Brigade, expressed his gratitude to the surrenderers for making the right decision.
 
"I call on other members of Guerilla Front Sendong to follow the path of these three individuals. I am reasuring you that we will treat you humanely and with utmost respect." Brig. Gen. Suderio said.

Moreover, Major General Antonio G. Nafarrete, the Commander of the 1st Infantry (Tabak) Division, commended the efforts of the 10th Infantry Battalion. "I commend the 10th Infantry Battalion for their dedication and hardwork in this endeavor. With this accomplishment, we are now one step closer to the dismantling of the entire Western Mindanao Regional Party Committee." Maj. Gen. Nafarrete added.
As of this posting, the three surrenderers were brought to Mayor Hilarion A. Ramiro Sr. Medical Center (MHARS-MC) for medical check-up to ensure that they are in the best health condition.

“Pagbabalik-Loob ng Isang Dating NPA, Malugod na tinanggap ng MTF ELCAC ng Lopez, Quezon”
Sa pangunguna ng Kagalang-galang na Punong Bayan ng Lopez, Quezon na si Mayor Rachel Ubana, kinilala ng Municipal Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (MTF-LCAC) kasama ang bawat kasapi nito ang pagbabalik-loob ng dating rebelde na si Alyas Estong/Noben sa tanggapan ng punong bayan ika-6 ng Setyembre taong kasalukuyan.
 
Sa karanasang kanyang ibinahagi, naramdaman niya ang kawalan ng pag-asa sa anim (6) na taon niyang pananatili sa loob ng armadong grupo. Malayo umano sa katotohanan ang inaasahang pangako ng Komunistang NPA. Dumanas din siya ng pangungulila sa pamilya at matinding hirap noong mga panahong sila’y walang humpay na tinutugis ng kasundaluhan sa kabundukan. Sa tuluyang pagkaubos ng kanyang mga kasamahan dahil sa pagkasawi sa labanan, sunod-sunod na pagbabalik-loob ng karamihan, at tuluyang paglikas ng NPA sa lalawigan ay tuluyan nang nabuo ang kanyang desisyon upang magbagong buhay.
 
Malugod naman itong tinanggap ng MTF-ELCAC kasabay ng pagbibigay ng tulong sa ilalim ng programang “Salubong sa Bagong Umaga” ng Lokal na pamahalaan ng nasabing bayan.
Ayon kay Lieutenant Colonel Joel R Jonson, Battalion Commander ng 85IB, hangad ng yunit na mabigyan ng pagkakataon ang mga dating rebelde na magbagong buhay at tuluyan nang mapawi ang bakas ng impluwensya sa bawat mamamayan. Ayon sa kanya nananatiling bukas ang himpilan ng 85IB para sa mga natitirang miyembro ng NPA na nais nang magbagong buhay.
 
Sa kasalukuyan, nasa pangangalaga na ng kasundaluhan ang nagbalik-loob na personalidad habang inihahanda ang mga kinakailangang dokumento para sa mga benipisyo ng Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP).

September 10, 2023

Nitong August 8, ginugunita ang ikatlong anibersaryo ng pagmasaker ng berdugong 81st IBPA ng Philippine Army sa limang pulang mandirigmang sina Pamela Joy “Ka Maymay” Peralta, Marxes “Ka Jiggs” Dazon o Kilala din bilang Samman, Roland “Ka Eugene” Marvil, Edgar “Ka Nardo” Justo, at si Mar “Ka Asyong” Capulas. Sila, ang tinaguriang Sta.Lucia 5, at mga miyembro ng Komiteng Larangang Gerilya – South Ilocos Sur (KLG-SIS) ng Bagong Hukbong Bayan (BHB) o New People’s Army (NPA).

Pinakamataas na pagpupugay Ang ibinibigay ng Kabataang Makabayan – Ilocos sa Sta. Lucia 5. Ang kanilang sakripisyo, mula nang pagpasyahan nilang humawak ng armas at sumapi sa BHB, sa kanilang tapat na pagsusulong ng armadong pakikibaka, pag-oorganisa sa mga magsasaka at katutubo, at pagsusulong ng rebolusyong agraryo, hanggang sa kanilang pag-aalay ng buhay para sa karapatan at kagalingan ng masang Pilipino, ay hindi matatawaran.

Sila ay naging huwaran sa kanilang pagsisilbi sa masang magsasaka at katutubo mula sa pagtulong sa kanila sa kanilang pang-araw-araw na mga suliranin sa kabuhayan sa bukid, sa patubig, hanggang sa pakikibaka nila laban sa pyudalismo, imperyalismo, at burukrata-kapitalismo.

Kaisa nila ang mga magsasaka at mamamayan na labanan ang mga pahirap na mga polisiya ng rehimeng US-Duterte na walang hiyang inalalako ang bansa sa mga imperyalistang bansa katulad ng US at China. Bilang tunay na hukbo ng mamamayan, ipinagtanggol nila ang taumbayan laban sa armadong pasismo at karahasan ng AFP at PNP sa mga komunidad sa kanayunan.

Overkill o labis-labis at hindi makatarungang dahas ang ginamit ng AFP partikular ng 81st IBPA sa pagpatay sa Sta. Lucia 5. Ang Sta. Lucia 5 noon ay nasa pinangyarihan ng engkwentro upang tulungan ang mga magsasakang umangkop at bumangon mula sa pandemya.

Dahil sa labis-labis na dahas na ito, napilitang mag-evacuate o umalis ang mga pamilya ng mga magsasaka at magsiksikan sa barangay plaza ng Brgy. Parioc sa Candon City, Ilocos Sur. Walang pakundangang nilabag ng 81st IBPA ang mga batas ng digma at mga kasunduan sa karapatang pantao katulad ng Comprehensive Agreement on the Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL). Halimbawa, hinuli nilang buhay si Ka Maymay, at nang tumangging magbigay ng impormasyon ay kanilang pinaslang nang walang kalaban-laban. Dahil din sa walang ingat at bara-barang pamamaril ng 81st IBPA ay may tinamaan at napatay silang lokal na magsasaka. Lahat ng ito ay naganap habang naghihirap ang mamamayang Pilipino upang umangkop sa pandemyang COVID-19.

Dito pa lamang, makikita natin kung sino ang hukbo at gobyernong tunay na nagsisilbi sa mamamayang Pilipino. Ang hukbong tunay na nagsisilbi sa sambayanang Pilipino ay Ang New People’s Army (NPA), at ang gobyernong bayang unti-unting itinatayo sa kanayunan ang pamahalaang tunay na nagsisilbi at nagmamahal sa mamamayan. Ang Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) ay isang marahas at bayarang hukbo na pumapatay ng mamamayan batay sa utos ng kanilang mapagsamantala at pahirap na among administrasyong Marcos-Duterte. Tanggalin natin ang ating suporta sa AFP at rehimeng Marcos-Duterte at suportahan Ang New People’s Army at ang pambansa-demokratikong rebolusyon!

Ipinapangako ng Kabataang Makabayan – Ilocos na ito ay patuloy na kikilos upang isulong Ang pambansa-demokratikong pakikibaka sa rehiyon bilang ambag nito sa rebolusyon sa buong bansa at mundo.

Magpapatuloy itong magmumulat, mag-oorganisa, at magpapakilos upang magpalakas at magpalawak at lumikom ng suportang teknikal at materyal para sa rebolusyonaryong armadong kilusan. Mapangahas na iigpawan ng Kabataang Makabayan-Ilocos ang mga limitasyon nito at magpapasampa ng laksang kabataan upang sumapi sa Bagong Hukbong Bayan. Kaisa Ang KM-Ilocos sa pagpapanagot sa 81st IBPA at iba pang elemento ng estado at mga kasapakat nito sa pagpapahirap, pagpatay, at pananakot sa sambayanang Ilocano at Pilipino.

Agtutubo nga Ilocano, pagserbian to umili, sumampa it New People’s Army!

WESTMINCOM: 3 former rebels yield in Misamis Occidental

Posted to the Western Mindanao Command (WESTMINCOM) Facebook Page (Sep 9, 2023): 3 former rebels yield in Misamis Occidental

3 former rebels yield in Misamis Occidental
Camp Navarro, Calarian, Zamboanga City – September 10, 2023

Amid the relentless efforts of the Joint Task Force ZamPeLan to defeat the Guerilla Front Sendong, three of its members laid down their arms and yielded to the military in Misamis Occidental on September 6, 2023.
 
The surrendered personalities were identified as alias Gino, alias Rica, and alias Jeboy. They submitted themselves to the 10th Infantry Battalion at Purok 3, Barangay Salimpuno, Sapang Dalaga, same province.
 
Alias Gino has a gunshot wound on his left forearm incurred in an armed confrontation with the military on January 30, 2022, in Barangay Bagong Silang, Lopez Jaena, Misamis Occidental, while alias Jeboy has a gunshot wound on his right forearm incurred in an encounter last February 2, 2023.
Upon surrender, alias Gino complained of pain from his fractured arm, so the trio were brought to the nearest hospital for immediate medical attention. The two injured former rebels were both diagnosed with neglected fractures and were admitted to the hospital, while alias Rica was examined to be physically fit. Alias Rica and alias Jeboy are a real-life couple who married on September 20, 2020.
Both alias Gino and alias Rica have an existing criminal case for attempted murder and homicide, while alias Jeboy has no pending case.
 
“The medical conditions of the injured former rebels exemplify the indifference of their leadership and colleagues. May this enlighten the minds of our brothers and sisters who are still misled with false ideologies. There is no future in rebellion. We urge them to give up their fight and return to the folds of the law,” Western Mindanao Command, Maj. Gen. Steve Crespillo expressed.
 
“I commend our troops for their steadfast resolve to end terrorism, and I attribute our successes to the unwavering support of our partners and stakeholders,” the WestMinCom Commander added.

Two of the five former violent extremists were part of the Bayali Splinters. They were known as alias Idol and alias Piping. They have existing warrants of arrest for the violation of Article 267 of the Revised Penal Code due to the kidnappings and serious illegal detentions they perpetrated.

“The surrenders were made possible through the collaborative efforts of the intelligence units, 18th Infantry Battalion, Joint Peace and Security Team, and the local government units of Albarka and Sumisip,” Brig. Gen. Luzon said.
 
The surrendered personalities handed over two 5.56mm M16 rifles, one 40mm Grenade Launcher, one M1 Garand rifle, and one Colt AR-15.
 
“I commend the Joint Task Force Basilan under Brig. Gen. Luzon for this accomplishment. Rest assured that we will continue to strengthen our collaboration with our partners and stakeholders to sustain peace in Basilan and its neighboring provinces,” Maj. Gen. Steve Crespillo, Commander of Western Mindanao Command, stated.

Communist terrorist group team leader yields, hands over firearms to military in South Cotabato
Camp Navarro, Calarian, Zamboanga City – September 10, 2023

Tired and weary, a communist terrorist group (CTG) team leader surrendered to the troops of the 5th Special Forces Battalion at Sitio Traankini, Lamlahak, Lake Sebu, South Cotabato, on September 5, 2023.
 
The former rebel, identified as alias Mateo, team leader of Team A, Squad Uno, FOC, WGF, Far South Mindanao Region, handed over an M16A1 rifle and a Cal .38 revolver to the military troops who facilitated his surrender.
 
Based on the report, the CTG remnant decided to return to the fold of the law due to uncertainty and exhaustion. He is hopeful that after his surrender, he will be able to live a normal life with his family and be a productive member of society.
 
"We welcome all those who wish to lay down their arms and return to the folds of the law. Rest assured that we will assist them in their reintegration into mainstream society," Western Mindanao Command Chief, Maj. Gen. Steve Crespillo said.
 
"Nevertheless, our troops remain relentless in conducting decisive military operations to press on those who refuse to end their armed struggle peacefully. We will hunt them down and thwart their terror ploys," the WestMinCom Commander added.
