SNIPERS OF THE New People’s Army (NPA)-Western Samar (Arnulfo Ortiz Command) fired upon soldiers of the 87th IB encamped in Sitio San Pedro, Barangay Poblacion 3, San Jose de Buan, Samar on June 9. The soldiers were erecting a fence in the sitio to enclose the area for their planned detachment

The sniping killed Corporal Marvin Calvintos of the 87th IB. Red fighters opened fire on the soldiers injuring a number of them.

In retaliation, soldiers targeted civilian communities. They fired artillery shells at mountains and farmfields near the said sitio, terrorizing the farmers. Most of the farmers were not able to work on their farms. Others were forced to evacuate for fear of being hit by the shelling.

San Pedro has been militarized since 2024. A long list of human rights violations have been recorded in the area.
