Philippine President: ISIL cell in Maravi crushed

12
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte made a statement today in which he reported on the victory over the terrorists of the Islamic State group (* banned in the Russian Federation). Recall that we are talking about the operation, which for several months is carried out in the city of Maravi on the island of Mindanao. This city at one time under their full control took igilovtsy. The Philippine army and national police launched a counterterrorist operation.


According to Rodrigo Duterte, today in Maravi, the final stage of the operation for stripping the last quarter of the militants is underway. On the eve of the Philippine security forces issued a statement that the leader of the ISIS cell (*) in the Philippines Isillon Hapilon was liquidated in Mindanao. In addition to him, the security forces destroyed the founder of another extremist gang of Omar Maute.

Philippine President: ISIL cell in Maravi crushed


During the anti-terrorist battles on Mindanao, according to official figures, more than 160 fighters from various Filipino security forces, 47 civilians and almost 850 terrorists were killed. The situation was complicated by the fact that almost the entire population of Maravi was held hostage by the igilovtsy for a long time, and a considerable percentage of the population also sympathized with the militants who were hiding behind Islamic slogans.

    Well done, Duerte ... there’s nothing to talk with them and to persuade ... terrorists and other rabble (for example, drug dealers) ... they must be destroyed ... everywhere and consistently ...

    killing more than 160 fighters of various Philippine law enforcement agencies, 47 civilians and nearly 850 terrorists

    Once again, the devil is in the details. So 850 Igolkins and "more" 160 Filipinos pretended to be the 200th. I don’t take peaceful people into account. Well, tell me comrades, is there such a ratio when cleaning the city on the island ?!

      What are you getting at? The ratio of losses of the defenders to the advancing minimum 1/3? Siloviki died a little? It would have been possible with even smaller losses, but the peaceful did not want to mix with the earth.

        Yes. That’s what I’m getting at. The operation lasted several months, the locals supported the Igolkin ... Here, either put on shorts or remove the cross. Or are the Igolkins completely rams?
