Philippines: Military captures NPA bombmaker, 2 others in Davao del Norte province

The arrest of the most notorious New People’s Army (NPA) bomb-making expert and two others in Southern Mindanao reflects the success of the Armed Forces’ focus operations, combined with the programs of the National Task Force Ending Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC).

In a statement Monday, the Eastern Mindanao Command (Eastmincom) said the partnership between the military and NTF-ELCAC has “paved for the cooperation of former rebels and the communities who share vital information.”

“(This has led) to the continued surrender and recovery of various firearms as well as improvised explosive devices (IEDs),” Lt. Gen. Greg Almerol, Eastmincom commander said.
