‘Attacks in answer
to gov't all-out war'
The Leonardo Panaligan Command of the New People's Army in central Negros claimed that its series of military actions against “legitimate targets” was in answer to the “all-out war” declared by President Rodrigo Duterte.
Ka JB Regalado, in a statement posted at the Leonardo Panaligan Command website, has claimed that 12 police and military personnel were killed in their month-long military action in Negros Oriental on July 21.
He cited what he described as a successful ambush in Guihulgan City, where they had killed six policemen and an alleged military asset, and recovered 17 firearms, more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, and four cellular phones.
