SORSOGON CITY, 13July2015 – About 10 armed members of the New People’s Army (NPA) harassed an Army team led by 2Lt. Mike Anro Fragio and Lt. Niko Pendijito on Saturday night in Barangay Catanusan, Juban, Sorsogon.

According to police sources, the NPA positioned themselves at the northwest portion, about 250-300 away from the Army position, and opened fire.

The firefight lasted for about seven minutes before the rebels withdrew toward the northwest direction of Barangay Maalo, Juban.

The police said the armed men belonged to NPA’s Larangan 2 (FC 80) KOMPROB Sorsogon.

There is no reported casualty on both sides, said police report.

As a counter measure, PNP personnel of Juban MPS and adjacent Municipal Police Stations have established chokepoints/blocking force in strategic areas in their respective territorial jurisdictions which can be used as withdrawal routes of the rebels. [BicolToday.com]
