The Santos Binamera Command (NPA-Albay) successfully launched a partisan operation today, February 20, at Barangay Cotmon, Camalig in Albay province.

Two soldiers of the 31st IBPA who were buying supplies at the local market of said barangay were ambushed by Red partisans around 7:20 in the morning. PFC Mark June Esico and PFC John Dave Adcolin who were both part of the security detail of the infrastructure project of Centerways Construction in Barangay Sulong of the said town were killed-in-action. A 45 caliber pistol was seized from them.

The operation is part of the NPA’s punitive campaign against AFP units and other state agents involved in gross human rights violations. The 31st IBPA where the two soldiers belong to is responsible for numerous fascist crimes against the people of Albay, Sorsogon and Masbate.

It is also part of the revolutionary movement’s ongoing tribute to the revolutionary memory and legacies of Comrade Jose Maria Sison.
