The Armed Forces of the Philippines, Northern Luzon Command and member agencies of the Regional Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict 3 (RTF-ELCAC) welcomed the withdrawal of support, highlighting that it is a major setback for the remaining CTG in Tarlac, who are working to regain their lost mass support, especially in the farmer sector.
