The 2nd Infantry (Jungle Fighter) Division headed by MGen Romeo G Gan AFP condemns the said act of harassment by the armed rebels as this clearly manifests the irrelevant ideals of CNN. Instead of promoting development, they are conducting economic sabotage.
“As the government is extending quality service to our countrymen in order to alleviate poverty and sustain peace and development, these armed rebels hamper our desire of attaining a common goal,” he said.
“Thus, I encourage all our stakeholders and our fellow countrymen to disallow these rebels in doing illegal activities by refuting their ideals, and by supporting the peace and development efforts of our government,” he added.
Presently, the 2ID conducts pursuit operation in order to monitor and track down these NPA rebels.
