Campaign boosted to declare
4 provinces insurgency-free

The Army's 3rd Infantry Division has two options for the New People's Army in the four provinces of Negros and Panay that are yet to be declared insurgency-free.

To destroy them, or bring them back to the folds of the law will be our focus, Maj. Gen. Jon Aying, 3ID commander, said Saturday. He, however, did not elaborate about their plans.

Six of the 10 provinces in the Visayas, which are under the areas of operation of the 3ID, have already been declared insurgency-free.
