MAGSAYSAY, Davao del Sur- On January 11, 2018, around 11:30 pm, a firefight between combined elements of the Army’s 73RD and 72nd Infantry Battalion against NPA terrorists led to the recovery of 6 M16 rifles, 2 AK47 rifles, 1 M14 rifle, 1 IED, assorted ammunitions and magazines, and 2 Honda TMX motorcycles in Barangay Tacul, Magsaysay, Davao Del Sur.
“This is a clear manifestation that the NPA is planning to conduct terroristic activities against government security forces and innocent civilians in the area
We are one with the community in despising conflict terrorism and extortion by the NPA terrorists”
