Reds slain in Nueva Ecija clash

Reds slain in Nueva Ecija clash”

Manila. Philippine soldiers killed nine Maoist rebels in one of the fiercest clashes since peace talks to end almost five decades of conflict broke down in May, an army spokesman said on Wednesday, Reuters reports.

Soldiers of the 84th Infantry Battalion killed nine communist New People's Army (NPA) rebels and wounded a soldier in Northern Philippines Nueva Ecija province Wednesday morning, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

"While open to resuming peace talks with the (President Rodrigo) Duterte regime, revolutionary forces are no longer hopeful that anything substantive will come out of it in the face of Duterte's subservience to the interests of US imperialism and other big foreign capitalist countries", the Communist Party of the Philippines, the political arm of the NPA, said in a statement a day prior to the incident.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation said an army soldier was also wounded in the right leg during the firefight that lasted more than two hours.

"The residents reported the presence of armed men in their area". Also recovered were backpacks containing several documents. Attempts to sign a peace pact with the group have repeatedly bogged down, the recent was with the Duterte administration.

Talks to end the communist insurgency hit a snag in July after President Rodrigo Duterte suspended the peace talks after a series of NPA attacks. His spokesman, Ernesto Abella, said Duterte needs to consult first his security cluster before making a decision to resume the talks.
