No casualties in Davao clash with NPA
[PhilStar] A joint police and military operation yesterday morning resulted in a clash with New People’s Army militants believed to have been holed up in a beach resort in Barangay Talomo in Davao City. No casualties have been reported.
Police spokesman Marcelo Morales said that the police team was about to serve five warrants of arrest against Ernie del Pilar, also known as Commander Jeffrey of the NPA’s Pulang Bagani Command 1 and his group at Victorio’s Beach Resort.
Morales said they monitored at least eight other NPA members who were with Del Pilar at the time of the encounter. He said, “Our troops tried hard to make sure that they could not escape but the rebels escaped."
