1 cop injured as gov't troops, NPA clash in Masbate

CAMP GUILLERMO NAKAR, Lucena City - A policeman was wounded after joint elements of the PNP and AFP encountered an undetermined number of NPAs at the boundary of Brgy. Poblacion District 1 & Brgy Canomay, Claveria (Burias Island), Masbate at 6:30am today (Nov 2) while on combat patrol led by PSI Bon Billy David Timuat.

The encounter lasted for 10 minutes after which the NPAs dispersed in different directions. One policeman was wounded as he was hit in the buttocks. He was evacuated at Bicol Regional Training and Teaching Hospital in Albay.

Colonel Cesar M Idio, Commander of the 903rd Infantry Brigade directed the engaged troops to conduct pursuit operation.

"The 903rd IBde will continue its aggressive conduct of focused military operations and intensify our joint operations with the local PNP and stakeholder engagement to facilitate the clearing of Sorsogon and Masbate to ensure that the AOR will be transformed into manageable conflict areas," Colonel Idio said.

SOLCOM on its part intensifies its campaign in Southern Luzon in order to achieve a more peaceful environment conducive for further development.
