3 NPA rebels from Rizal yield to military in Aurora
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO –– Three New People’s Army rebels, who were part of a unit that moved from Rizal province to Central Luzon, surrendered to the military in Aurora province, authorities said.
The three rebels, all Dumagat, belonged to Platoon 4A4 of the Guerilla Front Cesar under the Southern Tagalog Regional Party Committee, the 48th Infantry Battalion (IB) said in a report.
The three rebels were identified by their aliases as FPJ, JM, and Lara, who just turned 18 and eight months pregnant.
They claimed to have yielded to the government on Monday due to intensified combined operations of the Philippine Army’s 48th IB, 80th IB, and 91st IB, and the police’s 1st at 2nd Mobile Force Company in the mountains of Bulacan, Rizal, Aurora, and Nueva Ecija. INQ
