Manifesto inked on end to
insurgency in 2016

Military officials, politicians and representatives from nongovernment organizations in Region 7 attended the launching of “Bantay Bayanihan", a program aimed at realizing an end to armed conflict, held in Dumaguete City on Thursday, a government press release said.

The program, the first to be launched regionwide, will realize the objective of the Internal Peace and Security Plan, which is to end all armed-conflict by 2016, Col. Francisco Patrimonio, commander of the Philippine Army 302nd Brigade, said.

Bantay Bayanihan is a civil-society-led effort to provide a venue for security stakeholders in the government to participate in the discussion to successfully implement the IPSP of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the press release said.

Manhunt on vs. NPA in Siaton

Hot pursuit operations against suspected New People’s Army rebels that government troopers encountered in Siaton, Negros Oriental, Thursday, continued without let up yesterday despite the bad weather that hampered the attempt to bring in the Army’s K-9 sniffing dog, Col. Marion Sison, commander of the 79th Infantry Battalion, said.

The dog was to be used in tracking down the suspected rebels through the items recovered at the encounter site in Sitio Danao, Brgy. Apoloy in Siaton, that included two jungle hammocks, two backpacks, a gas stove, a communist flag, personal belongings and subversive documents.

Sison said a civilian and a former NPA rebel informed the Army of the presence of armed men in the area.
