Ceasefire violation story is fake news — Army

Ang Communist Party of the Philippines at ang military arm nito na New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) sa Northeheast Mindanao o Caraga region na may gawa-gawang kwento ng paninisi sa mga paglabag ng mga Army sa tigil-putukan noong Disyembre 23 , 2019.

Ang mga paratang ay ginawa ni Nicolas Marino ng North Central Mindanao Regional Committee (NCMRC) na ang unit unit sa ilalim ng Army’s 4th Infantry (Diamond) Division ay nagsagawa ng pag-atake laban sa mga rebelde ng NPA malapit sa nayon ng San Vicente sa bayan ng Esperanza, lalawigan ng Agusan del Sur.

Ang yunit sa lugar ay kabilang sa Army’s 26th Infantry Battalion ng 401st Infantry (Unity) Brigade.

Sa isang pahayag noong Huwebes, sinabi ng command group ng 4th ID na walang pag-atake na naganap at walang sundalo ng batalyon na iyon (26th IB) na nasangkot sa sinasabing pag-atake dahil ang mga tropa ay buo at lahat ay accounted sa kanilang punong tanggapan sa Agusan.

“The allegation made by the NPA was fabricated, purposely to mislead the community and the general public,” stressed 4th ID chief Maj. Gen. Nemesio Franco M. Gacal.

“Our local chief executives there had sent their respective statements denying the allegation of the CPP-NPA in the area,” he said.

“All military units under 4thID will strictly observe and abide the implementation of ceasefire but will remain steadfast on the possible actions of peace-spoilers who would inflict terror and atrocities to the peaceful communities in Caraga region.”

“Our soldiers are disciplined, responsible and professional soldiers. We support whatever the Commander-In-Chief declares as long as it is within the bounds of our constitutional mandate.”
