The troops of the 24th Infantry Battalion discovered the enemy’s lair and confiscated war materials and medical paraphernalia at Sitio Salngen, Barangay Anayan, Tineg, Abra on June 13, 2022.

An abandoned lair with a temporary house was believed to be the bunk of the members of Komiteng Larangang Guerilla (KLG) North Abra. Upon scouring the lair, the troops recovered war materiel such as one cal. 5.5mm M16 rifle, long & short magazines for M16 rifle, four magazines for M14 rifle, 11 broken chain links for cal. 60, one pistol holster, medical paraphernalia, assorted medicines, and personal belongings.

The confiscated war materiel is in the custody of the operating troops.

“Residents of Barangay Anayan tipped off the abandoned lair of the KLG North Abra so our troops immediately conducted combat patrol that resulted in the discovery and confiscation of the items,” LtC Ricardo GB Garcia III, Battalion Commander of 24IB said.

“I want to thank them for giving us information that helps us in our fight against the KLG North Abra in the province. Their support means a lot as it boosts our morale that together- we can end the local communist armed conflict,” he added.

Recall that last March 23, 2022, an encounter between the government troops and the members of KLG North Abra ensued in the same place. — PA
