Rebel killings denounced

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

The Army’s 94th Infantry Battalion yesterday denounced the continued killings of innocent civilians by the New People’s Army, following the death of a farmer on Saturday in Brgy. Carol-an, Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental.

Lt. Col. Angelo Guzman, 94th Infantry Battalion commander, said that the victim, identified as Gilbert Garlit, was plowing his farm when three armed rebels suddenly appeared from nowhere, dragged and shot him three times.

Guzman said that Garlit, 32, was the third civilian killed by communist rebels, after Joelito Hilacio and Randy Rociana in Brgys. Carabalan and Buenvaista, Himamaylan City, on June 13 and July 12, respectively.

These killings are barbaric, inhuman, and definitely unacceptable. This is the face of certified terrorists, Guzman said.
He vowed to destroy those who sow terror in the communities.*
