CABADBARAN CITY, Agusan del Norte -- The 29th Infantry (Matatag) Battalion successfully discovered New Peoples Army (NPA) Rocket-Propelled Grenade (RPG) with three (3) live high explosive (HE) ammunition and bomb paraphernalia on September 30, 2022 at the hinterlands of Brgy Cuyago, Santiago, Agusan del Norte when troops received information from small scale miners in the area.

The 29th Infantry (Matatag) Battalion condemns the CTGs continued use of improvised explosive devices (IED) functioning as landmines due to the inherent humanitarian threats they pose to civilians and communities. It clearly implies that the CTG does not respect human rights and does not comply with International Humanitarian Law (IHL). (1Lt. Jade Bryce G. Bu├▒e, CMO Officer, 29IB PA/PIA Agusan del Norte)
