MANILA, Philippines -- The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) says they continue to conduct massive military operations in known lairs of the New People's Army (NPA).

Maj. Gen. Ricardo Rainier Cruz of the Eastern Mindanao Command said this is to stop the NPA from their alleged extortion activities.

Cruz added they are implementing programs for rural communities to dissuade them from supporting the rebels.
