MANILA, Philippines—One civilian was killed, while three others were wounded as New People’s Army rebels fired upon government troops and policemen in Aurora Friday, the military said.

A policeman was included among the wounded after government security officers were attacked while responding to an incident when construction equipment was set on fire by the communist rebels at Sitio Dimani in Villa village in Ma. Aurora town, said First Lieutenant Tala Servidad, spokesman of the Army’s 7th Infantry Division based in Nueva Ecija.

Initial reports said that NPA rebels armed with high-powered firearms burned a backhoe and a dump truck owned by Palacios Constructions.  Damage to property was estimated at about P9 million pesos.

The rebels were reportedly extorting money from the company.

The Palacios Constructions is currently working on a road project that connects Metro Manila to Aurora province, Servidad said.

Pursuit operations were ordered against the rebels.

      Yun ay kung may prinsipiyo ang kausap mo. Paano kung terorista? Kunyari may pinaglalabang prinsipyo pero hindi pa nga nila control ang gobyerno, kurakot na. Ano pa aasahan mo?

        bansag yan ng imperyalistang u.s.

        na nagbansag din sa mga katipunero noon
        na insurectos

        na binansagan pa ulit
        na tulisanes

        ang tawag ng mga pilipino sa npa
        rebelde – kung sa gobyerno ka
        freedom fighters naman – kung ndf ka

        itong mga pakialamerong imperyalista
        ang nagbansag lang sa kanila ng terorista

        para gawing rason sa pagkolonya ulit
        ng imperyalistang u.s.
        sa atin

        isinasali tayo sa anti al qaeda
        war on terror daw nila

        gaya gaya naman mga
        kolonisadong utak
        na mga collaborators
