Army operating troops of the 68th “Kaagapay” Infantry Battalion of the 203rd Infantry “Bantay Kapayapaan” Brigade recovered CPP-NPA Terrorists’ (CNTs) war materiel and explosives at Brgy. Iriron, Calintaan, Occidental Mindoro on August 3, 2022.

Acting from a tip-off from the community, the 68IB immediately conducted an operation against 12 CNTs belonging to the members of the Main Regional Guerilla Unit led by Antonio Baculo also known as “Floro,” wherein a 10 minutes firefight ensued.

Troops were able to recover one M16 rifle with an attached M203 grenade launcher, a homemade shotgun, one hand grenade, one barrel for a K3 squad automatic weapon, and magazines for an M16 rifle with live rounds of ammunition.

The Army leadership lauded the 68IB for their relentless military operations which resulted in the recovery of CNT’s war materiel in Occidental Mindoro. — PA
