Members of NAAC-NPA-Rizal ambushed combined elements of SAF-PNP and 16th IB-PA last April 22 , 2010 at around 3 o'clock in the afternoon in Masalo, Sitio Tayabasan, San Jose, Antipolo City, Rizal. The government troops were pursuing the NPA-Rizal who ambushed the SAF Commando-PNP last April 20, 2010. Unknown to the pursuing government troops, members of the NPA-Rizal had set an ambush in the area that they would be passing through. At around 3 PM, firefight started and lasted for about 1hour.

The tactical offensive resulted to 12 dead and 5 wounded from the government troops. To avoid being seen by the people and by the press, the AFP-PNP airlifted the bodies on board 2 helicopters at night time. The AFP-PNP declared a news black-out of the incident to hide to the public and the media their successive defeats in the hands of NPA fighters. But, much as they would want to hide it, the people in the area, the farmers, tribesmen and settlers knew the result of the NPA tactical offensive.

The NPA fighters suffered no casualties and safely withdrawn to their camp. With the warm support of the people of Rizal and the mastery of terrain, the NPA forces were able to defeat the AFP-PNP offensive even with their superiority in numbers and arms.

For anybody interested to know the truth, including the media people, all they have to do is go to the area where the ambush happened and talk with the people. To be able to ferret out the truth, speak with people without the presence of the government troops so that the people could speak freely about what happened. You can also talk with ordinary soldiers and SAF-PNP personnel without the presence of their superiors.

The victories of the NPA-Rizal forces in defeating government forces are slap on the face the AFP-PNP leadership including their corrupt Commander-in-chief, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. It is a clear proof that they did not really win the hearts and minds of the people as they boasted it to the media. Instead, the people wholeheartedly supported their true army, the New People's Army. It is the support of the people that ensures the victory of the NPA and the defeat of the fascist government troops.
