MALUNGON, Sarangani (November 19, 2021) – MGEN Ernesto C Torres (2nd from left), 10th Infantry Division commander, answers questions from the media in a press conference held to present the accomplishments of the 10ID and its partner agencies in the whole-of-nation approach on eradicating insurgency and armed conflicts through programs implemented under Executive Order 70. According to Torres, since January this year a total of 605 members of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) were neutralized, including 27 high-ranking Communist Terrorist Groups (CTG) leaders, in the area of responsibility of the 10ID.
