Maj. Jekyll Dulawan, Army’s 5th Infantry Division spokesperson, said soldiers discovered an anti-personnel mining factory in Barangay Dungeg, prompting them to carry out an airstrike at dawn.

The place was reportedly used by the rebels belonging to the NPA’s Komiteng Rehiyon-Cagayan Valley as a manufacturing site for improvised explosive devices.
