Viral: Pres. Duterte Cries During His Visit of Soldier's Remains Killed by the NPA

The President of the Republic of the Philippines showed his weak side during his visit of some soldier's remains at Naval Station Felix Apolinario in Panacan, Davao City on Friday afternoon.

Pres. Rody Duterte couldn't control his emotions as he cried when he saw the remains of Corporal Michael Yadao, one of the victims by the New People's Army (NPA). This is the second time that Pres. Duterte cried, the last time the chief executive cried was in front of his mother's remains when he won the elections.

Netizens lauded Pres. Duterte's gestures as he grieved with another lost of lives by government's forces on their war against the terrorist group, New People's Army. They noted that although the President could be seen as a tough leader but he has some soft sides.

The former Mayor of Davao City now President Duterte visited the wake of Corporal Michael Yadao and Private Virnel Damondon who were both killed in an encounter with the NPA at Brgy. Lamanan, Calinan District, Davao City on Thursday.

Watch the Highlights of Pres. Duterte's Visit to Fallen Soldiers:

According to Brig. General Gilbert I Gapay, commander of Joint Task Force Haribon which has the operational jurisdiction over Davao City, they grieved for the death of our soldiers.

The General was quoted as saying "We grieved for the death of our soldiers, and we salute them for their display of the finest tradition of soldiery.”

The incidents leading to the deaths of Corporal Yadao and Private Damondon happened on February 17. A total of 17 soldiers belonging to 3rd Infantry Battalion of the Philippine army were wounded while two others were killed when hit by a landmine mounted by the New People’s Army (NPA).

Of the 17 wounded troopers, only eight were identified, to include 2Lt. Harvey Kyl Escora; Cpl. Arnel Cuaresma; Cpl. Rey Danaytan; Cpl. Dominic Alegado; Pfc. Celso Neri; Pvt. Mike Barnuevo; Cpl. Jose Bautista Jr; and Pfc. Marion Rex Retutar.
