Western Mindanao Command Chief Lt. Gen. Corleto Vinluan, Jr. stated that operating troops of JTF Central discovered another NPA lair, recovered another NPA member cadaver and two Improvised Explosive Devices amid intensified clearing operations in Palimbang, Sultan Kudarat in the early morning of December 24, 2020.

“While conducting a follow-up operation, our troops from the 63rd Division Reconnaissance Company discovered another NPA lair and NPA member cadaver in Barangay Namat Masla, Palimbang, Sultan Kudarat,” said Lt. Gen. Vinluan, Jr.

“It can be recalled that in the afternoon of December 23, operating troops of JTF Central discovered a NPA lair yielded to the recovery of two cadavers (one female and one unidentified already in an advanced state of decomposition), numerous propaganda materials, and approximately 100 makeshift huts. May this be an eye-opener to all the remaining members of the NPA. May they realize that they are nothing else but just sacrificial lambs of the group,” Lt. Gen. Vinluan, Jr. added.

Meanwhile, troops of the 37th Infantry Battalion together with the 31st Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team conducted clearing operations in Lumoton Range, tri-boundary of Barangays Datu Wasay and Sangay, both of Kalamansig; and Namat Masla of Palimbang, all of Sultan Kudarat.

“Our operation resulted in the discovery of a NPA satellite lair and the recovery of two IEDs,” said Lt. Col. Allen Van Estrera, 37IB Commanding Officer.

“The EOD team facilitated the proper handling and disposal of the said IEDs,” Lt. Col. Estrera added.

Troops continue to scour the area.

“We will continue to conduct security operations against the weakened communist terrorist group in the area,” said Col. Eduardo Gubat, 603rd Infantry Brigade Commander.

“Examinations will be conducted on the NPA member cadaver to possibly know their identity including the two other NPA member cadavers that our operating troops recovered yesterday, December 23, 2020” said Col. Gubat.

Further, Maj. Gen. Juvymax Uy, JTF Central Commander said, “With the continuous support from the communities, we will strengthen our efforts to pursue these Communist terrorists and preempt their hostile plans especially during this holiday season”.
