Another batch of New People’s Army warriors surrendered to the government in Samar.
A report posted by the Philippine Army said 26 NPA rebels from Barangay Pandal, Can-avid, Eastern Samar surrendered to the 14th Infantry Battalion under the command of Lieutenant Commander Jimmy V. Jimenez last December 2, 2018.
The surrender is a result of the PA’s effective Community support program and their aggressive civil military and intelligence operation in the area.
The support the military gives to the community has made them end their support to the armed struggle being waged by the NPA.
The Army promises to be relentless in its pursuit to end insurgency in its area of operation to attain just and lasting peace for a better and progressive Samar for the Warays.
