NPA have no intention of honoring Covid-19 truce - AFP




They were not “in” it in the first place.

Despite the declaration of the Communist Party of the Philippines their own truce it was not because President Rodrigo Roa Duterte but their founder said because it was because of the United Nation’s (UN) call for an immediate global ceasefire.


“NPA has made it clear that they will not honor their ceasefire declaration at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 28," Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) chief-of-staff Gen. Felimon Santos Jr. said in a statement.

The New People’s Army(NPA) the armed wing of the CPP , 30 members had a firefight with government troops from the  2nd Infantry Division (ID) who are in the area doing community work, Santos said.

"One enemy was killed and we were also able to seize one M-16 rifle, one grenade, and one rifle grenade. Though we suspect more losses from the enemy side considering the amount of blood stains left in the encounter site. One of our soldiers paid the ultimate sacrifice while two others were wounded in this encounter," he added.

Santos explains that the failed attack against the government troops was their part projecting strength and power on their 51st founding anniversary which falls on March 29.

"They were planning to celebrate their anniversary on March 29 with a bang," he added.
Santos also said this unprovoked attack belies the NPA's so-called "humanitarian principles" and expose the exploitative nature of their ceasefire declaration.
"Unfortunately for them, our troops on proactive defense nationwide are ready and are expecting such treachery," he added.
