PNP deploys over 300 SAF troopers to Negros Island

“I have ordered yesterday the deployment of more than 300 Special Action Force troops to Negros Island,” Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Oscar Albayalde said on July 29.

He said the deployment will “augment local police units in anti-criminality and internal security operations against criminal elements an terrorists operating in the provinces of Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental.” 

On July 18 NPA members killed four police officers in Ayungon, Negros Oriental.

“There’s also a scheme on the part of the CPP-NPA where they sacrifice their own para ito naman we’ll see they are blaming again the government forces for alleged human rights violation saka itong mga patayan na ito always tinuturo ‘yung government forces dito,” General Albayalde added.
