In Catarman, Northern Samar, the soldiers helping in the rescue and relief operations of Typhoon Urduja were ambushed by New People’s Army terrorists, wounding two men in uniform and sending the people in the area to panic.
The armed forces were from the 2oth Infantry Battalion (20IB) who were doing Relief Assistance and Rescue Operations for the typhoon victims in Barangay Hinagonoyan, Catubig town, when more than 50 NPAs blasted fire at them.
The 20IB was condemning the terrorists group attack which is against the international humanitarian law.
NPA and other leftist groups always claim that they are pro-poor and against any human rights violations, but what they did is contradicting their belief.
Here are some reactions of the netizens on what the NPA terrorist group did in the wake of typhoon Urduja;
