Government troops seized one high-powered firearm from fleeing communist terrorists following a firefight with the military in Palimbang, Sultan Kudarat, on July 16, 2022.

Troops of the 8th Scout Ranger Company (SRC) encountered about six members of the communist terrorist group in Barangay Buluan when they chance upon the armed group, which led to a firefight.

No casualties were reported on both sides, but the terrorists left behind one M16 rifle and magazine at the encounter site.

The successful military operation forced the communist terrorists to scamper. It also disrupted the terrorist’s plan to conduct atrocities against civilians and government targets in the area. — AFP
