The 4th Civil Relations Group, Civil Relations Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines continuously conducts information operations related to the successes of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and Western Mindanao Command in the campaign against terrorism and insurgency and support of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC).
“We believe that the ultimate solution to address terrorism and communist insurgency is not through military operations alone but through the whole-of-nation approach. Everyone’s participation is crucial in defeating our adversaries and reaching our common goal of attaining inclusive and sustainable peace in our respective community,” WestMinCom Acting Commander, Brig. Gen. Rojas said.
“The armed forces actively participate in the delivery of basic services and social development in conflict-affected areas and vulnerable communities spearheaded by the local government units and other sectors because we believe that this holistic approach is the vehicle and key ingredient to combat insurgency,” the WestMinCom Acting Commander added.
“We also ensure to dominate the information environment to entice the remaining communist insurgents to surrender. As a result of these efforts, we have attained numerous gains including the influx of surrenders and the dismantling of various Communist Terrorist Group alliances. Rest assured that we will continue to support the national government in this endeavor,” Brig. Gen. Rojas further stated.
