Soldiers recover firearms of CTG in SurSur

Tagbina, Surigao del Sur -- The soldiers under the 701st Infantry Brigade recovered an M16 rifle and a .45 caliber pistol during the armed encounter against the communist terrorist group (CTG) on July 24, 2023, in Barangay Santa Juana, Tagbina, Surigao del Sur.

Also recovered at the encounter site were ammunition, communication equipment, personal belongings of the communist- new people's army (NPA) terrorists, and subversive documents with high intelligence value.

Likewise, the municipalities of Tagbina and Hinatuan activated their respective Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Councils (MDRRMC) and distributed relief goods to the affected residents of Sitio Almaria, Barangay Bigaan of Hinatuan town, and Barangay Santa Juana in Tagbina town, all in Surigao del Sur.

After the incident, Hinatuan Mayor Shem "Titing" Garay immediately visited and responded to the needs of the affected residents.

In his message, 10th Infantry (Agila) Division Commander Major General Jose Eriel M Niembra lauded the cooperation and support of the people in Surigao del Sur in reporting CTG presence in their area.

"We call on the remaining communist NPA terrorists in Surigao Del Sur to surrender and avail of the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E_CLIP)  so you can live in peace together with your families," MGen. Niembra noted.  (Maj Mark Anthony S Tito, 10th ID, DPAO/NGPB, PIA-Surigao del Sur)
