Three members of the Communist terrorist group surrendered to the troops of the 502nd Infantry “Liberator” Brigade from 27-30 June 2022 at Santiago and San Pablo City, Isabela.

In a statement from Lt. Gen. Ernesto Torres Jr, Commander of Northern Luzon Command which is the AFP’s unit in charge of combatting insurgency in North and Central Luzon, he identified the surrendered personalities as alias “Lerio,” the former secretary of Central Front Isabela and currently the Education Staff of Komiteng Probinsyang Isabela; alias “Del,” Intelligence Officer and Squad Leader of Squad Dos; and alias “Victor,” member of Squad Uno, who are all under the dwindling communist terrorist group Komiteng Probinsyang Isabela of the Komiteng Rehiyon-Cagayan Valley (KR-CV).

Commander of Joint Task Group Liberator Brig. Gen. Danilo Benavides furthered that “Lerio and Del have been on the government’s Periodic Status Report on the Threat Groups (PSRTG) watchlist for the 4th quarter of 2021.”

Meanwhile, Maj. Gen. Laurence Mina, Commander of Joint Task Force Tala lauded the troops’ accomplishment in the area of operations and ensured that “the Tala soldiers will further intensify their operations to fully eradicate terrorism and assist the government in its fight to end local communist armed conflict by spreading the genuine reforms of peace of the government to the remaining hiding members of the terror group.”

Moreso, Lt. Gen. Torres said that “the series of defeats suffered by Communist terrorists in North and Central Luzon will cause their morale to plummet, creating a leadership vacuum that will eventually lead to their imminent downfall in this part of the country.”

The NOLCOM Commander ended his statement by calling out to the remaining Communist terrorists in the Northern Philippines to abandon armed struggle and start anew with the help of the government’s reintegration program for former rebels. — PA
