LUBUAGAN, Kalinga -- Despite unilateral ceasefire declared by the Philippine government and national Democratic Front of the Philippines, the Armed Forces of the Philippines had been violating these.
The New People’s Army bared this saying the 501st Infantry Battalion had no let-up in its operations against communist forces in Kalinga.
The NPA said the military had been holding anti-insurgency operations here in Western Uma since Dec. 26.
Despite clamor of people in the area for the military to move out, they have reportedly been staying in homes and public facilities and trying to put up a detachment.
Army troops under the 501st Brigade also reportedly launched operations Aug. 8 in Balantoy, Balbalan town.

On Tuesday, elements of the 50th IB also reportedly held operations against the NPA in barangays Apatan and Limos in Pinukpuk town , two days before the second round of peace talks will be held in Rome, Italy.
