Fresh clashes involving government forces and the New People’s Army (NPA) broke out in the provinces of Sarangani, Compostela Valley and Davao Oriental on Saturday, the military said.

Capt. Rhyan Batchar, spokesperson of the Army’s 10th Infantry Division – which has jurisdiction over the said provinces, said a soldier was injured when elements of the 73rd Infantry Battalion battled NPA rebels in Barangay (village) Little Datal Anggas in Alabel, Sarangani for two-hours starting 10:30 a.m.

Batchar said the wounded soldier, whom he did not identify, was immediately airlifted to the military hospital in Panacan here.

He said three separate firefights also took place between soldiers under the 60th Infantry Battalion and communist rebels in Barangay Bollucan in Laak, Compostela Valley.
