Two fascist troops of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) were killed in two separate encounters between its units and forces of the New People’s Army (NPA)-Abra (Agustin Begnalen Command) during the last week of February.

On February 23, NPA-Abra actively defended against 50th IB troops operating between Barangay Naguilian, Sallapadan and Barangay Abang, Bucay. A soldier was killed in the battle.

On February 27, the NPA also encountered a 24th IB unit between Barangay Bazar and Ud-uddiao, Sallapadan. A soldier was killed in this battle.

The AFP concealed their casualties in both both incidents. The people of Abra have long been complaining about the relentless combat operations of the AFP in their area, which cause great harm on their lives and livelihoods.
