President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered the Armed Forces of the Philippines to “destroy” the New People’s Army in the same way that the police demolish the drug trade.

In a speech at a military camp in Compostela Valley Monday (January 22), Duterte said he is done dealing with the communists in moderation.

“Ang aking orders, wala akong paki-alam diyan sa inyo. Just like drugs, dito sa giyerang ito destroy the NPA,” Duterte told soldiers.

“Destroy the organization. Mga pulis, NBI, PDEA, destroy the drug syndicate,” he added.

Duterte said soldiers should not be conscious of human rights because “we find ourselves in a mess.”

The President has terminated peace talks with the NPA’s ideological wing, the Communist Party of the Philippines, over the rebels’ incessant attacks and their leaders’ demand for a coalition government.
