At the Davao Del Norte provincial capitol, Maj. Gen. Ernesto Torres Jr, the 10th Infantry Division Commander, and Colonel Consolito Yecla, the 1003rd Infantry Brigade Commander, handed 19 CPP-NPA Terrorists (CNTs) surrenderers to Davao del Norte Governor Edwin Jubahib on Monday, November 22, 2021.

The 19 former rebels from the Southern Mindanao Regional Committee’s Sub-Regional Guerilla Unit surrendered seven high-powered rifles to government forces.

Combined efforts of the 56th, 3Ist, 27st, 89th Infantry Battalions, and other intelligence units under the 1003rd Infantry Brigade resulted in their surrender.

Lt. Gen. Andres Centino, the Commanding General of the Philippine Army and concurrent Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, has urged troops to meet the Commander-in-2022 Chief’s deadline to resolve the decades-long insurgency problem.
