Nolcom banners accomplishments in fight vs. NPA


CAMP SERVILLANO AQUINO, Tarlac City – The Northern Luzon Command (Nolcom) has announced its major accomplishments in defeating the New People’s Army (NPA) “communist terrorist groups” within its area of responsibility.

“For our Internal Security Operations, a total of 130 firearms were recovered from January to December 2018. Also, a total of 314 rebel personalities surrendered to the Nolcom troopers capped by their Focused Military Operations complemented by the efforts of the Army 5th and 7th Infantry Divisions,” Nolcom commander Lieutenant Gen. Emmanuel Salamat reported.

He also said units within the Unified Command also conducted a community support program dubbed “All-in-One Bayanihan” which focuses on providing support and assistance to geographically isolated and displaced areas.

“Another accomplishment of Nolcom is the two-day peace summit for former rebels which was conducted to ensure and facilitate that each rebel returnee was able to receive the benefits of the Enhanced Comprehensive Localized Integration Program,” Salamat said.

Meanwhile, Nolcom launched the Heroes Foundation which aims to provide additional support to families of soldiers killed-in-action in defense of various communities against local terrorists and other enemies of state.

“We will continue our streak in warding off threats of terroristic intentions towards the people and state and we will continue to sustain peace-building initiatives and development efforts in our area of responsibility and will relentlessly strive for our mission of protecting the people and fight for their rights,” Salamat said.
