    Hot pursuit vs rebels in Phl continues

     
    CLASSES in all levels in Matanao, Davao del Sur in Southern Philippines remain suspended since Monday as the military continues its hot pursuit operations against communist rebels who attacked the town’s police station and an Army detachment killing two policemen and seven soldiers.
    Mayor Butch Fernandez was forced to suspend classes to prevent students from being hit in the crossfire.
    Military operations spread as far as the hinterlands of neighboring Magsaysay town, Hagonoy and Kiblawan, all of Davao del Sur; Colombio in Sultan Kudarat; and Tulunan in North Cotabato.
    Col. Norman Marcus Flores, commander of the 1002nd Infantry Brigade, warned his men against landmines possibly planted by the fleeing members of the New People’s Army’s (NPA) Front Committee 72 led by one Felix Amodia alias Commander Jing.
    Seven members of the 39th Infantry Battalion were killed while eight others were wounded when the vehicle they were riding was hit by a landmine explosion on Monday morning while they were chasing the rebels in Barangay Asbang in Matanao.
    Earlier at 4:00 a.m., a band of 50 rebels attacked the Matanao Municipal Police Station, killing two policemen and wounding five others. They also carted away four Armalite rifles.
