Army ‘rescues’ 2 wounded rebels in Sultan Kudarat


COTABATO CITY, Maguindanao del Norte, Philippines — The Philippine Army has announced the rescue of two wounded New People’s Army (NPA) women guerillas following clashes in Kalamansig town of Sultan Kudarat province on July 28.

Lt. Col. John Paul Baldomar, commander of the Army’s 37th Infantry Battalion (IB), said the two women — Wayda Gumpay alias “Mika” and Layna Ampit alias “Lyn-Lyn,” both in their early 20s — were found with slight injuries following the firefight in the town’s remote village of Sangay.

The two women were treated at the Sultan Kudarat District Hospital in Lebak town before they were brought to the 37th IB headquarters, also in Lebak, where they were secured by female soldiers.
