Army soldiers seize
2 NPA camps
The newly-organized 82nd Infantry Battalion overran two suspected New People’s Army camps in Brgy. Lab-on, Igbaras, Iloilo, following a series of encounters with members of the Southern Front Committee of the Kilusang Rehiyon-Panay on Wednesday, the military said.
Capt. Mark Andrew Posadas, regional military spokesman, yesterday said the 82nd IB troops recovered an exploded improvised anti-personnel landmine, electrical and electronic accessories, kitchen utensils, personal belongings and subversive documents left behind by the fleeing rebels.
Posadas said the anti-personnel landmine, which had reportedly been prematurely exploded during the gunbattle, caused injuries to the two rebels.
