Two communist rebels were killed in fresh clashes with government troopers Saturday morning in a remote village in Besao, Mt. Province.

The two, whose names have not been available yet, according to the Philippine Army’s 7th Infantry Division, are members of the Komiteng Larangang Gerilya- Abra, Mountain Province, Ilocos Sur (KLG-AMPIS) operating in these tri-boundaries.

Soldiers from the 69th Infantry Batallion said they chanced upon a group of rebels at sitio Masameyeo, Barangay Gueday, Besao, ensuing into a 10-minute gunfight sending the rebels fleeing.

At least two R4 rifles were recovered during a 10-minute firefight.
