3SRB Troops Conducted Info Drive On The Use Of Landmines

Troops of the 3rd Scout Ranger Battalion led by their commanding officer, LTC Cirilito Sobejana, conducted an information drive in Juban, Sorsogon regarding the disastrous effects of landmines to the civilian populace. The audience were members of LGU-Juban and concerned residents. LTC Cirilito Sobejana explained the dangers posed to the communities of the NPA rebels' rampant use of landmines, especially those hidden and unexploded landmines, in the Bicol region.

Recovered NPA rebels' landmines during an armed encounter between Scout Rangers and NPA terrorists early this year in Sorosogon province.

*The United Nations banned the use of landmines in warfare since 1997.
