RPSB and 23rd IB, harassed by the NPA

Bisaya» A team of Red fighters, under the New People’s Army – Front 4A, Western Agusan del Norte – Agusan del Sur Subregional Operations Command (NPA-WANAS), harassed the troops of the Philippine National Police – Regional Public Safety Battalion – 13 (PNP-RPSB-13) and 23rd Infantry Battalion Philippine Army while doing their combat operation in Sitio Tabon, Brgy. Aklan, Nasipit, Agusan del Norte, August 2, 2017. In the said operation, two (2) were killed-in-action (KIA) and another one was wounded-in-action (WIA) of the military, while no reported casualties in the NPA troops. Prior to this action, a platoon of the said NPA unit also encountered the patrolling members of RPSB-13 last July 30 in Tagcatong, Carmen, Agusan del Norte. Recently, on August 3, an officer of RPSB 13 said in a media interview that there was “an encounter between the police and the NPA” in Sitio Stand Puller, Brgy. Manila de Bugabos, Butuan City. But the NPA unit in the said area confirmed that it was not the Red fighters the RPSB-13 encountered, but only their fellow soldiers. Ka Malem Mabini Spokesperson NPA-NCMR
