The New People’s Army claims that two soldiers were killed in Sitio Danao, Brgy. Apoloy, Siaton, Negros Oriental, on June 28, but the Army has denied having any casualties.
Two members of the 32nd Division Reconnaissance Company of the 3rd Infantry Division were killed in an encounter with a squad-size rebel unit in Sitio Danao, Estrella Banagbanag, spokesperson of the Rachelle Mae Palang Command of the New People’s Army Southeast Negros Front, yesterday claimed in a statement.
The dead soldiers were airlifted by an Air Force helicopter from the encounter site, it added.
