AFP kill 16 NPA rebels in Samar air strikes in the biggest battle this year


A major blow was dealt by the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) against the communists New People’s Army (NPA) in Dolores, Eastern Samar last Aug. 16.

It was reported that 16 armed rebels were killed in the operation which also led to the recovery of several firearms.

Maj. Gen. Pio Diñoso III, commander of the Philippine Army’s 8th Infantry Division, said the intense firefight that destroyed a major NPA lair and a bomb-making facility is the biggest accomplishment of the government since the creation of the national and local task forces on ending local communist armed conflict in 2019.

“The recovery of several firearms means that many fighters were wounded as they abandoned their firearms to flee from our troops. This will further weaken the NPA organization in Samar Island,” Diñoso said.

Diñoso said there were about 50 rebels taking shelter in the lair. They belong to the remnants of the communist terrorist group who left the neighboring Samar province due to intensified clearing operations last year.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has to use air assets since the NPA set up anti-personnel mines near the lair that serves as hideout for its leaders and fighters, according to the military official.

No soldier was hurt during the military operation.

“Maybe the NPA stayed as they fought to protect their leader. They kept coming back to the encampment probably to secure their laptops and other sensitive materials,” he added.

The AFP is optimistic that other members of the NPA will surrender, realization will seep in that the government with all its resources will be used to destroy their armed struggle.

“If they won’t choose the path for peace, they will face the same plight. This is to show that the Philippine Army is strong and has the capability to end this armed conflict,” Diñoso said.
