Soldier on disaster response mission hurt by landmine in Sorsogon

CAMP GUILERMO NAKAR, Lucena City - A soldier was hurt after his team on Disaster Response mission was landmined by NPA rebels in Irosin, Sorsogon 11:45 a.m. of Dec 5, 2014.

The victim was identified as PFC Jerlou Fiesta. He was part of the Disaster Response Team of the 903Bde who were on their way to Irosin, Sorsogon to establish a DRRMO Command Post in connection with TS Ruby. They were onboard a civilian vehicle when the landmine, which was located on the road side, exploded.

The soldier was immediately brought to Irosin District Hospital for treatment. "He is already out of danger," said the attending physician.

LtCol Beerjenson Aquino, Commanding Officer of the 31IB immediately dispatched troops for pursuit operations.

SOLCOM denounces this attack by the NPA.

"During these moments where we are facing another natural calamity threat, it is very inhumane for the NPA to launch offensives versus soldiers on Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response operations," said Major General Ricardo R Visaya, Commander SOLCOM.

Despite the attack, SOLCOM continues its mandate on HADR to ensure the safety of the people.
