PRRD set 60-day Time Frame for Peace Talks

President Duterte said over the weekend that he had set a 60-day time frame for peace talks he is seeking to revive with communist guerrillas, urging the rebels’ exiled leader to come home to hammer out a deal.

The President said that he chose to order the resumption of the peace talks with the CPP-NPA-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF) because it is his duty to ensure that the Philippines is a peaceful country.

Showing his sincerity, Duterte asked government forces for understanding, reminding them of his mandate as President to see to it that the country is peaceful.

AFP statement on the Pastor Killed by NPA terrorists

AFP statement on the Pastor Killed by NPA terrorists
Post from| ✌️ Peace 88.3 FM 📻🇵🇭️

The AFP condemns in the strongest terms possible the killing of religious leader by the communist NPA terrorists.

The killing of Jepti Acedo, an innocent civilian and a pastor; and the wounding of his two companions is totally unacceptable, appalling and downright an act of terrorism. This exemplifies the NPA’s contempt and total disrespect to human rights and International Humanitarian Law.

We commiserate and offer our prayers to the family and relatives of Pastor Jepti Acedo of the JEHOVA’s Witnesses and wish his two wounded companions to get well.

The continued impunity and mass murder of human beings in the hands of NPA terrorists in Mindanao cements the national perception on the inhuman and evil character of their murderous organization as it strengthens their worldwide reputation as harbinger of disaster and omen of death.

The killing of another innocent civilian and a religious leader at that shows proof of their decades long deception and orchestrated oppression of the toiling class, a show of unparalleled arrogance against the masses who have been at the receiving end of their atrocious and malevolent acts.

Here now comes a certain Alias Otto, apologizing for their mistake. Paniniwalaan ba natin sya sa sinbasabi nya na mag iimbestiga at parurusahan ang mga nagkamali? Sa pangalan pa lang sinungaling na sya. Gamitinn nila ang kanilang tunay na pangalan kung naniniwala sila na tama ang kanilang ipinaglalaban.

The masses remember the deaths these terrorists brought when they killed people they mistaken to be soldiers or they accused as spies. They promised to investigate and punish those responsible but all is lip service, a blatant lie!

The people remember Fernando Timbal of Panabo City, a family man and a true member of the masses whom the NPA killed a few years ago saying he is a soldier but later on was found out to be a bank driver.

Same fate befell Silvano Delas Alas, also a few years back, a farmer in Davao Oriental whose death came by the bullets peppering his body. The NPA said he was a soldier but he was not. His death forced the NPA terrorists, again, to admit their mistakes in carrying out many killings against countless innocent victims they mercilessly murdered.

Let us not forget the Tulang brothers of Davao City accused by NPA terrorists to be spies but their only sin is stealing fighting cocks to serve as their meal because they are poor. Binaril nila sa ulo ang pinaka matanda habang ginilitan nila ang leeg ng dalawa na parang manok.

Let us not forget Datu Antonio Takinan, a Lumad leader in Magpet, North Cotabato, who was murdered by NPA terrorists just this month. The NPA accused him of being a spy when all he did was to fight for the rights of indigenous people.

The AFP is firm on its stand to fully support the primacy of the peace process but our soldiers will do everything necessary when the safety and security of our people are threatened.

The AFP reiterates its call to the CPP-NPA-NDF to stop all atrocities against the people and be sincere in the peace process.

We call on our people to shout in unison against such impunity and orchestrated mass murders against the citizenry so that the united voices of the masses will reverberate in every corner of the country and perhaps the whole world and shake the very foundation of the Godless CPP-NPA-NDF terrorist organization and all its front organization in every sector and level of the society… and perhaps they will be sincere.

Let the people of Mindanao and the whole country stand their ground and condemn these barbarity and crimes against humanity as we call for justice for all the hapless victims and their families… and perhaps they will be sincere. | 📝 Peace Builder 🇵🇭️

30726971_1703875946346543_5059650274176532480_n.png
CAMP AGUINALDO, Quezon City—The 49th Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines General Rey Leonardo Guerrero bows out of service after 38 years in the military profession.

General Guerrero will turn over the AFP’s top post in a Change of Command Ceremony, to Lt. Gen. Carlito Galvez Jr., the current Commander of the AFP Western Mindanao Command based in Zamboanga City.

President Rodrigo Duterte will preside over the turnover ceremony, on Wednesday, April 18 at the Parade Grounds here, where General Guerrero will also be honoured with a Testimonial Parade and Review and the prestigious award of the Philippine Legion of Honor (Rank of Commander).

Weakened Enemy

While serving as Commander of the Eastern Mindanao Command before he became the Chief of Staff, General Guerrero has orchestrated the execution of Community Support Programs, a key component of the military’s new operation plan, the Development Support and Security Plan Kapayapaan.

During his term as the AFP Chief, the concerted efforts of AFP units in the conduct of focused military and intelligence operations alongside intensified stakeholder engagements resulted in the neutralization of 6,817 New People’s Army (NPA) personalities as of April 15.

A total of 6,709 of these have surrendered broken down as follows:

721 regular NPAs and Sangay ng Partido sa Lokal members;
513 Militia ng Bayan;
712 underground organizations members; and
4,761 mass supporters.

Moreover, 47 others NPAs were also killed and while 61 others were apprehended in legitimate focused military operations.

A total of 288 assorted firearms were also seized from the NPAs.

Meanwhile, the intensified efforts against the local terror groups and foreign fighters resulted in the neutralization of 457 various terror personalities composed of 81 killed, 280 apprehended/arrested, and 96 surrendered.

Marawi City Rehabilitation

Faced with an equally challenging task of rebuilding Marawi City from the devastation brought by the armed terrorist attack, the AFP conducted activities to support the overall effort of the government, spearheaded by the Office of Civil Defense, for the City’s recovery, reconstruction, and rehabilitation.

A total of 3,953 assorted unexploded ordnance (UXO) and 738 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were found and disposed.

Currently, seven sectors out of the nine sectors in the main battle area are already cleared from UXOs and IEDs. The remaining two are still being cleared from explosives that may have been trapped within collapsed buildings.

The AFP also deployed engineering units to assist cognizant agencies in the construction of temporary shelters for Internally Displace Persons.

In partnership with the Department of Public Works and Highways together with the National Housing Authority, the AFP completed 250 units of temporary shelters in Barangay Sagonsongan and is currently supporting the construction of additional 570 units of temporary shelters in the area.

Force Structure Rationalization

Under the term of General Guerrero, the Letter of Instruction on Pagbabago “Juliet” was also issued, which revises and updates the Pagbabago “India” and reiterates the “force provider, force employer concept.” It defines and standardizes the command relationships of AFP units based on existing doctrines and current operational guidelines.

Several units and offices were also activated including the Tactical Operations Wings (TOW) that re-designate the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd TOWs and 579th Composite Tactical Wings into Northern Luzon, Central, Western Mindanao, and West TOWs respectively.

Five Infantry Battalions (IB) were also activated under General Guerrero’s term namely the 90IB, 91IB, 93IB, and 94IB following the increase in the number of Philippine Army personnel as ordered by President Duterte.

The Special Operations Command (SOCOM) of the Army was also reconfigured into the AFPSOCOM which will consolidate all AFP special operations forces under one commanding unit.

AFPSOCOM will take command and supervision of the Special Operations Wing of the Air Force, the Naval Special Operations Group from the Navy; Scout Ranger Regiment, Special Forces Regiment and Light Reaction Regiment of the Army; and the Joint Special Operations Group of GHQ.

The AFP Systems Engineering Office (AFPSEO) was also activated to manage the implementation of the AFP modernization and Self-Reliant Defense Posture programs.

The AFPSEO will act as the technical adviser to the CSAFP on matters related to the systems engineering design of the weapon systems and defense equipment that will be acquired under the Revised AFP Modernization Program with regard to their functional and material designs.

The activation of the AFPSEO will also put into place a dedicated office for the management and implementation of the various modernization projects along the five major components of the program, namely: Capability, Materiel and Technology Development; Bases and Support Systems Development; Force Restructuring and Organizational Development; Human Resource Development; and Doctrine Development.

Martial Law Implementation

Under General Guerrero’s guidance, the AFP judiciously utilized Martial Law in the implementation of the campaign against loose firearms. Various AFP units facilitated the surrender of a total of 1,424 assorted loose firearms with the cooperation of local government units and clan leaders in Mindanao.

This includes the 81 firearms surrendered by residents and officials in Lanao Del Sur on March 24 and March 26 and 106 firearms surrendered by local executives in Maguindanao last March 26 and 27. Hundreds of loose firearms were voluntarily surrendered by politicians and clans in various parts of Mindanao.

The AFP also launched over 85,930 checkpoint operations; 47,557 security patrols; and over 6,791 critical infrastructure and installations security.

“It is with great pride that I commend the AFP Chain-of-Command, the members of the Joint, Personal, and Special Staff, the Officers, the Enlisted Personnel, and the Civilian Employees who all together performed their functions well for the accomplishment of their respective units’ missions, not to mention the many sacrifices they made, that brought the AFP Organization to where it is now,” General Guerrero said.

“It was without a doubt that we have distinguished ourselves as an organization by performing our mandate with gusto and focus: to protect the Filipino people and the state. Rest assured, the AFP will remain a reliable force for peace and progress, securing the nation’s core and peripheral interests and rendering service to the country in collaboration with other agencies towards the attainment of lasting peace and stability in the country,” General Guerrero concluded. | Peace Builder 🇵🇭
