SUPAMIL (Suporta Para sa Pamilya) was not materialized. All we experienced are hardship, hunger and fear." alias JASON said. "With our intensive security operations and continuous collaborations with our Barangay Officials, we can gear our efforts towards the attainment of peace in our communities," COL MARION ANCAO, Commander, 73IB said. These incidents mark a good start for CY 2019 as it indicate the diminishing of NPA’s force for its so-called people’s war and armed struggle. The steady increase in number of NPA terrorist surrenderees brought brighter hope that NPA force will soon diminish. BRIGADIER GENERAL ROBERTO ANCAN AFP, Commander of 1002nd Brigade, also stressed that “the continuous armed struggle will only bring death, misery, anger, and poverty. The people of Sarangani deserve to have a peaceful environment.” He added, “We are once again calling the NPAs to go back to the folds of law, various benefits are enhanced to support you and your families especially when you surrender and lay down your firearms.” On the other hand, MAJOR GENERAL JOSE C FAUSTINO JR AFP, Commander, 10ID applauded the determination of 1002nd Brigade and its troops for sustaining the gains of continuous surrender of Communist terror group (CTG) in our area of responsibility. Our people-centric and whole-of-nation approach in dealing with the CTG is proven effective with the continued surrender of its members and abandonment of the armed struggle. The total downfall of CPP-NPA-NDF or the CTG in the area will soon be finally achieved as we continue to protect the peace and the people of the communities we are serving.
