    FORT MAGSAYSAY, NUEVA ECIJA – Elements of the 81st Infantry Battalion, 7ID, PA, discovered a CPP-NPA Terrorists’ (CNTs’) supply depot at the boundary of Barangay Caparian and Barangay Casilagan, of Sta. Cruz, Ilocos Sur yesterday.

    A platoon from A Coy led by Lieutenant Jade Lyzterdan P. Gavino discovered the stash kept inside a blue plastic drum unobtrusively dug into the ground.

    The following materials were recovered: five improvised explosive devices (IEDs), one bandolier, 10 blasting caps, one detonator or blasting machine, one detonating switch, and one handheld radio.

    The 7ID and its units have stepped up efforts to recover materials and weed out rebel personalities that are causing locals undue harm and disturbance.

    Major General Felimon T. Santos Jr., Commander of 7ID, commends the efforts of the troops involved in the recovery and said that he hopes to see more positive results with the help and cooperation of the people.
