MANILA, March 30 — The continuing efforts of the Philippine Army to soften the enemy forces and eventually eradicate their group carry on as troops discovered two New People’s Army camps in Northern Samar and the surrender of one NPA terrorist peacefully in Aklan.

On March 28, Army spokesman Lt. Col. Ernesto Torres said an NPA terrorist, identified as Jun Lucendo Galido, voluntarily submitted himself to the authorities in Camp Jizmundo, Libas, Banga, Aklan.

Galido was believed to be a former assistant squad leader operating in Sablayan and Calintaan in Occidental Mindoro. He went on a lie-low status in November of 2008.

Meanwhile, in Northern Samar, the military was able to discover an abandoned enemy camp in Brgy. Cagbliwang, Catarman. The troop was on a combat operation when they found the said enemy camp. The camp can accommodate more or less 20-30 persons and has its own guard post. It was believed to be abandoned for a week now.

Another enemy camp in Northern Samar was found by roving military men in Brgy. Capotoan, Las Navas. The camp has a kitchen, comfort rooms, and can house more or less 30 persons. Troops also found political leaflets and other personal belongings. The said camp was believed to be abandoned for almost two weeks now.

"The Philippine Army shall continue its intensified operations to maintain the peace and order in the country as they strengthen their force in fighting insurgents and terrorists," said Torres. (PNA)
