Soldiers, NPA clash in Sultan Kudarat

ANOTHER clash between the government soldiers and members of the New People's Army (NPA) took place in Sultan Kudarat on Thursday afternoon.

The soldiers from the 39th Infantry Battalion were checking on the reported presence of NPA at Sitio Bulol Lomot, Barangay Datalblao, Columbio, Sultan Kudarat around 2:30 p.m. on April 21, 2016.

A firefight occured when they met with some 10 members of the NPA.

The rebel group immediately fled when they got the chance, leaving behind their dead member with an M16 Armalite rifle.

10th Infantry Division spokesperson Captain Rhyan Batchar, in a statement on Friday, bared that the fleeing NPA rebels were believed to have suffered more casualties as bloodstains were seen in several areas of their location at the encounter site.

"The dead body of the unidentified male ALG member was turned over to proper authorities. No soldier was hurt in the incident," he said.
