Malacañang on Friday condemned the bomb attack committed by the New People’s Army (NPA) in Borongan City on Samar Island late Monday afternoon.

The NPA rebels reportedly detonated six improvised explosive devices in a remote Pinanag-an village that resulted in the killing of six soldiers and wounding 20 others.

Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said the recent communist rebel attacks on government forces were meant to “derail” the national task force aimed at ending the “local armed communist conflict” in the Philippines.

“Ito’y malinaw na isang paraan para po i-derail ang Executive Order No. 70 or ito po ang National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict at ang mga kaakibat po na mga aktibidad ng NTF-ELCAC, kung saan ay atin pong kinukumbinsi ang ating mga kasamahan, mga kaibigang, mga kadugo na mga CPP-NPA na bumaba na po at sumama na po sa ating lipunan,” added Andanar.

The official also gave assurance that livelihood assistance awaits communist rebels who decide to return to the fold of the law.

“At kapag ginawa po nila iyon ay bibigyan po natin sila ng isang magandang programa para po sila’y makabalik ng wasto sa lipunan na may trabaho at meron pong kapasidad at mayroon pong malaking assistance mula sa ating gobyerno,” he said.
