The following is from the website of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines:

US military troops masquerading as actors in humanitarian missions have been repeatedly exposed as having overtly participated in Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) combat operations against the New People’s Army (NPA) in different areas in the country, as well as against  the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) in Mindanao.

The US Counter-Insurgency Guide confirms military assistance to “affected governments” like the Philippines in defeating the Communist Party of the Philippines, New People’s Army, and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (CPP-NPA-NDF), which it calls “terrorist”. It is also a reassertion of US imperialism’s containment and engagement policy against its economic rivals in East Asia and the Pacific, to secure its geo-political interest in the region.

CP of the Philippines exposes U.S. military intervention

The following statement by the Communist Party of the Philippines is from the website of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines:

US troops are actually engaged in military operations in the country, starting from the provision of advice and training, sending ‘humanitarian assistance forces,’ in the country providing logistical, intelligence and combat support to local puppet troops, or actual engaging in covert combat operations.”
