At Sitio Masameyeo, Barangay Gueday in Besao, Mountain Province, operating troops from 69IB, along with Besao Municipal Police Station personnel and Mountain Province Provincial Mobile Force Company (PMFC), clashed with Komiteng Larangang Guerilla – Abra, Mountain Province, Ilocos Sur (KLG-AMPIS) members.
