GAMU, Isabela — Army soldiers and seven alleged communist rebels clashed in Tinglayan town, Kalinga province on Thursday (December 8), the military said Friday.

Army Capt. Rigor Pamittan, chief of the military’s 5th Infantry Division Public Affairs Office, said the government troops chanced upon the rebels belonging to the Komiteng Larangang Gerilya-Abra Mountain Province Ilocos Sur during a security operation at Sitio (sub-village) Balay in Barangay (village) Tulgao West before noon.

Pamittan said no soldiers were wounded in the skirmish, but bloodstains were spotted at the clash site, an indication that some of the rebels could have been wounded in the firefight.
