CAMP GEN EMILIO AGUINALDO, QC (DWDD) – President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has announced the Suspension of Military Operations (SOMO) effective December 24, 2017 to January 2, 2018.
According to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, this unilateral ceasefire would lessen the apprehension of the public this Christmas season. The people expect that the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army-National Democratic Front of the Philippines (CPP-NPA,NDFP) would do a similar gesture of goodwill.
Christmas holds a special place in the hearts of our countrymen. In the observance of this occasion, we hope that all Filipinos would stand together as one nation and aspire for peace in our beloved Philippines. PCOO/MCAG
