Communist rebels kill another civilian


SUSPECTED members of the New Peoples’ Army (NPA) allegedly shot to death another civilian in Moises Padilla town.
Lieutenant Colonel Ramil M. Bitong, 11th Infantry Battalion commander, identified the victim as Benjamin Sibonet of Barangay Sandayao, Guihulngan, Negros Oriental, who was killed around 2 p.m. last Friday.
Bitong said this, once again, is another human rights violation against unarmed civilian by the NPAs.
He said four alleged NPA members were responsible for the killing of the victim whom they had mistaken as a military informant.
The victim was shot with a caliber .45 pistol several times on the head, resulting to his instantaneous death. The rebels then fled towards Sitio Bungao, Barangay Trinidad.
“This murderous rampage of NPA is a desperate move to remain relevant and impress influence,” Bitong said.
