CPP takes responsibility for civilian casualties in NPA ambush

The Communist Party of the Philippines extends deepest condolences to the family of the 4-month infant who died in the NPA ambush at Brgy. Tikalaan, Talakag, Bukidnon on November 9, 2017.

Initial reports from the field indicate that the Toyota Fortuner, a civilian vehicle, was tailing a police patrol car, the target of the ambush. NPA blocking forces intended for stopping civilian vehicles from entering the ambush site were reportedly unable to flag down the said vehicle, thus exposing it to the deadly volley of fire.
While waiting for the final results of the on-going investigation regarding the circumstances of this unfortunate incident, the CPP takes full responsibility for the death of the infant and the wounding of two other civilians, and will take all measures possible to account for the resulting difficulties.

Preventing injury to civilians has always been the policy of the revolutionary movement in the process of the people’s war. All responsible Party committees and NPA commanders are advised to learn lessons from this incident towards refining the conduct of tactical offensives in order to avoid civilian casualties in the future.
