Enemy hideout discovered, Army troops foil extortion activities in Mis Or

CLAVERIA, Misamis Oriental – After an enemy hideout was discovered, troops from the 58th Infantry Dimalulupig Battalion encountered Communist Terrorist Groups in Brgy Banglay, Lagonglong Misamis Oriental, on June 3, 2022.

Following the tracks from the enemy hideout, the troops conducted strike operations, and at around 10 in the morning, the encounter against five communist terrorists of Guerilla Front Huawei, SRC1 transpired.

The firefight lasted about ten minutes, after which the enemy withdrew northeast. On the government side, no casualties have been reported, while the enemy side has yet to be determined. However, heavy bloodstains were discovered in the discovered enemy hideout while scouring the encounter site. Four backpacks, one scope, personal belongings, medical paraphernalia, and subversive documents were then recovered by the troops.

Lt. Col. Ricky L. Canatoy, Commanding Officer of the 58th Infantry Battalion, said that “The encounter is a result of the continuous effort and active steps to thwart enemy hostile activities such as extortion and atrocities, especially now that they are becoming more and more desperate with their current situation, not having enough resources and supplies, deprived of food and rest. These remnants are now hungry and tired as the government troops’ operations are relentless as we really seek to put an end to the insurgency here in Misamis Oriental. “

Lt. Col. Canatoy also extends his gratitude to the residents for their continuous cooperation and for giving vital information. He also urges the public to continue its support for the government by refusing to support the Communist Terrorists in any way since only a few of them are left and are in no position or capability to do damage. They are already on the brink of collapse and are just trying to survive.
