GOOD NEWS! Martial Law Extension in Mindanao is Finally APPROVED!

The five month long battle in Islamic City of Marawi started on May 23, 2017 brought larger picture of modern day extremism and terrorism in the Philippines. The siege between between Philipppine Forces and extremists Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), including the Maute and Abu Sayaff Salafi Jihadist groups marks as the longest urban battle in the modern history of the Philippines.

The ideology of terrorism upscale the death tools and terrified people around the globe and in any walks of life. Before October 17, 2017, the death of the ISIS influence leaders Isnilon Hapilon and Omar Maute, transcended relief of security among Christians and Muslims, domestically and abroad. Father Teresito “Chito” Suganob, one of the faces of the battle who were rescued exposes his survival dilemma on the battleground of blood, guns and cadavers.

Finally, majority of the Congress approved the request of Pres. Duterte to extend the Martial Law Declaration in Mindanao until December 31, 2018, 240 were in favor while 27 were against it, 14-4 and 226-23, Senate and House of Representatives respectively. Senators Aquino, Drilon, Hontiveros and Pangilinan are against it.

“Public safety is our primordial concern; thus, we ask the public to stand behind the Administration and rally behind our defenders to quell the continuing rebellion in Mindanao,” Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said.
