The army recovered two improvised explosive devices (IEDs), two sets of firing devices switch, IED wire, one magazine of cal. 9mm, kitchen utensils, pregnancy test kits, kitchen utensils, and other subversive documents.


The army believed that the NPA members fled the area due to their dwindled and weakened forces.
