The alleged harassment of a military outpost on May 27 in Brgy. Hinakpan, Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental, was dismissed yesterday by the Army’s 62nd Infantry Battalion as “fake news.”

There was neither harassment nor injuries to troopers assigned at the detachment, a statement from the 62IB said.

In a statement, Ka JB Regalado, Spokesman of the Leonardo Panaligan Command, alleged that the military suffered casualties in their harassment of the Hinakpan military outpost, where an alleged gun battle lasted around five minutes.

The 62IB said the rebels’ claims are aimed at boosting the morale of their handful of comrades, whose majority of colleagues already died in a series of encounters with government forces.*
