Operating troops of the 4th Infantry “Scorpion” Battalion under 203rd Infantry “Bantay Kapayapaan” Brigade, clashed with the CPP-NPA Terrorists (CNTs) on June 8, 2022 at Brgy. Lisap, Bongabong, Oriental Mindoro.

The troops acted upon a tip-off from the indigenous people who experienced continuous extortion from the CNTs. The exchange of firefight lasted for 10 minutes until the CNTs scampered in different directions. The military troops seized one M14 rifle, magazine, ammunition, cellular phone, mobile charger, and various medicines.

Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Romeo S. Brawner, Jr., commended the 4IB on their prompt action against the CNTs in the area that continuously conduct extortion activities and threaten the community. — PA
